KT, a leading digital platform company, has created a digital healthcare platform, through which it has a significant, growing presence in the healthcare ecosystem. At the end of last year, KT established a new division, the Digital & Bio-Health Organization, residing within KT's Future Value Promotion Office and under direct control of CEO Koo Hyun-mo, to further advance the digital healthcare platform. Through this platform, KT is forming various partnerships with hospitals, pharmaceutical companies, academic associations, and biotech ventures and will oversee its new partnership with NeuroSigma. In addition, earlier this year, the head of the Future Value Promotion Office, Kim Hyung-wook, became chairman of Korea's Digital Health Industry Association.

Kim Hyung-wook, KT's Head of Future Value Promotion Office, said, "In Korea, digital therapy is still in its infancy, but its utility and growth potential are excellent. Starting with our strategic partnership with NeuroSigma, we will actively foster and promote digital therapeutics, including electronic drugs, as the basis of new and innovative healthcare businesses and to expand the digital therapeutics market in Korea and beyond." Mr. Kim added, "We have been impressed with NeuroSigma's eTNS System, which has already shown itself to be a safe and effective alternative to drug-based therapies. We are eager to work with NeuroSigma to integrate this industry-leading digital therapy into our growing digital healthcare platform and to develop the next generations of digital therapy."
