尹 government promotes non -face -to -face medical treatment system.
The new government was launched on the 10th. Prior to this, the Presidential Acquisition Committee selected the six national goals and the 110th national agenda. It also revealed the national vision of ‘the country that leaves again, the country of the people who live well together’. In the 22nd anniversary of its launch, GDNet Korea has set up a series of intensive checks on the information and communication technology (ICT) field among the 110th government tasks in the new government.

⑪ Digital Bio field
President Yoon Seok -yeol said in December last year, when he was a candidate, “non -face -to -face care is an inevitable reality.”.
Five months later, the 20th Presidential Acquisition Committee announced a digital bio development to respond to bio -replacement, and formalized that it will be deployed to the new government task.
Since then, the Commission has placed the “non -face -to -face medical institutionalization” in the 110th National Task of Yoon Seok -yeol, which was announced on the 3rd. The Commission stated, “We will promote primary medical -centered non -face -to -face medical treatment for patients who need to resolve medical blind spots such as medical vulnerabilities and to manage regularly.”
The local government has begun to work on the work to meet the new government’s keynote. An industry official said, “The new government is interested in digital healthcare, so local governments are already preparing for business departments and collaboration with related industries.” Even officials from the Ministry of Health and Welfare say, “What remains is the revision of the law.”
■ Fostering biophyswidth and digital bio
The goal of ‘Digital Bio Development for Bio War Conversion’ as a national task is ▲ bio -health governance ▲ global mega funds ▲ Bio -specialized regulatory sandbox ▲ 1 million bio big data construction and private openness ▲ digital It supports the development of healthcare products and supports medical data platforms.
The industry is welcoming. An official of the Korea Pharmaceutical Bio Association said, “The development strategy announced by the Migration Committee is to create synergy by combining artificial intelligence (AI) and big data with the pharmaceutical bio industry.” In the midst of intense, it is welcoming that the government will create an ecosystem of digital -based bio R & D innovation and private cooperation with the government.
However, the pharmaceutical association said, “The actions proposed by the acquisition committee should not be only in terms of technical aspects such as expanding and supporting platforms.” There should be a big change at the level. ”
The relevant ministries, academia, and industries had no disagreement in the early days of the improvement of regulations. This is because non -face -to -face medical limitations are considered to be one of the most common regulations in the promotion of digital healthcare.
The new government’s strategy for fostering digital healthcare has virtually been promoted by the Moon Jae -in government, and it is not surprising in itself because it has continuity and continuity. However, the story is different if the revision of the medical law, which has been agent for more than 20 years, is made by the new government. In fact, the necessity of allowing non -face -to -face medical treatment, which is a representative regulation for fostering digital healthcare, is also sympathetic to the government, industry, and even the medical community.
However, there are also concerns that some of the institutionalization backgrounds are considered the industrial side first. In the so -called “Dr. Shopping,” the abuse of specialized drugs, rising medical expenses, and the institutionalization of national health risk factors are not properly discussed.
According to Article 33 (1) of the Medical Law, doctors, dentists, and oriental doctors in the medical business shall have a medical business in the medical institution in principle. Article 34 (1) of the Act stipulates that remote medical care for medical knowledge and technology by utilizing information and communication technology for medical personnel in a distant place. Even at this time, the range is limited to medical personnel.
In the Corona 19 trend, the Ministry of Health and Welfare allowed non -face -to -face care with the terms of “temporary enemy.” According to the Ministry of Health and Welfare’s non -face -to -face medical treatment, a total of 3.35 million non -face -to -face care has been done in 13,252 medical institutions nationwide over the past two years. The Ministry of Health and Welfare emphasizes that there was no problem such as medical accidents in this process.
“The institutionalization of non -face -to -face medical care is intended to provide medical services to patients who are difficult to receive face -to -face care,” said the Ministry of Health, Welfare, Director of Health Policy Division. He said, “How long can’t medical care be stagnant even though the digital environment has changed?”
In relation to this, Han Ho -sung, chairman of the Digital Healthcare Union (Bundang Seoul National University Hospital), said, “The public has accepted non -face -to -face care as a daily life due to about 5,000 non -face -to -face medical treatment every day during the Corona 19 fan -decip.” It may be necessary to carefully select and maintain some of the positive aspects of non -face -to -face care. ”
■ Industrial industry “We need to institutionalize quickly”… The medical system also changes the position of the position of the medical community
The industry repeatedly emphasizes the need for institutionalization. “Medical care is not fully market autonomy because of the nature of welfare, but Korea’s digital healthcare sector cannot be competitive.” Considering that 40%of US investments are in the healthcare field, Korea should first open the market. ”
Dr. Now, a non -face -to -face medical platform startup, is one step further. Lim Kyung -ho said, “Medical care should be provided fairly and universally to all, regardless of the boundaries of initials, rescue, mildness, and chronic diseases.” It is more necessary. ”
The point to note is the fine position of the medical community. The Korean Medical Association recently passed the agenda related to non -face -to -face medical care at the General Assembly of the National Assembly. The core of the agenda is that non -face -to -face medical institutions should be centered on primary medical institutions, and doctors’ associations should be discussed in promoting non -face -to -face care.
Although the medical community has not changed 180 degrees from ‘absolute opposite’ to ‘full approval’, it is interpreted as a significant change considering that it has adhered to the opposition for more than 20 years.
In the past, the participatory government tried to pursue a pilot project, but it was defeated against the medical association, and there was no change in the position. When the Ministry of Health and Welfare allowed temporary non -face -to -face care, the Medical Association opposed institutionalization.
Park Soo -hyun, a public relations director of the Medical Association, said, “In the General Assembly, agenda approval is intended to be a representative and a debate.” “I will discuss the direction that can be applied to the field.”
■ Non -face -to -face medical safety and reliability, “I have to verify more” vs “I have verified 20 years”
Even if non -face -to -face care is allowed by law, there is a concern for securing safety and reliability and commercialization of medical care. Kim Hwi -young, general manager of the Korean Medical Intelligence Society (Professor of Life System Information at Yonsei University Medical School), said, “Even if technology is effective, there is a reliability problem.”
“The business opportunity should be judged through a strong and cold demonstration,” he said. “The industry should never consider non -face -to -face care, and reflect the needs of both patients and medical staff.”
Professor Kim said, “It is true that there is a concern that there is a concern that the regulation is solved, but it does not secure effectiveness and focuses on making money.”
The Medical Association is also wary of the industrial allowance to allow non -face -to -face care. Park Soo -hyun, a public relations director, said, “Medical care should not be approached only in terms of industry.” “Platform users have a lot of so -called ‘Dr. Shopping’, which may be economic advantages for companies, but there are additional expenses for health insurance finances.” He pointed out that “there may be various works such as limited health finance, abuse of specialty drugs, and rising medical expenses.”
He said, “There are many cases of acquiring wrong medical information as a ‘platform care’ and visiting the hospital. I was concerned.
Meanwhile, the National Assembly currently has two bills of amendments to the Medical Law (in addition to the Democratic Party’s Kang Hospital and Choi Hye -young, Representative of the Democratic Party). The Ministry of Health and Welfare plans to finish institutionalization based on the National Assembly discussion and finish it by next year. In relation to the Ministry of Health and Welfare, the non -face -to -face medical council in the Health and Development Council, which will discuss the matters with the medical community, has not been confirmed yet.
Hyung -woo Health Policy, Director of Health and Medical Policy Division, Ministry of Health and Welfare, said, “We have continued to discuss with the medical community. It is not convincing to verify safety and reliability for 20 years. ” It is ridiculous to secure 100%safety and reliability. ”
