Vientiane (VNA) – A telemedicine I.T. system was presented to the Lao army’s Hospital 103 in Vientiane on April 22 as a support from the Vietnamese Ministry of National Defence.

The telemedicine system was built by Vietnam’s Central Military Hospital 108 under strict technical standards and with modern components.

Major General Do Nang Tinh, deputy head of Vietnam’s General Department of Logistics, said the telemedicine system will help swiftly transfer medical advances and experiences of the top doctors in the Vietnamese army to their counterparts at Hospital 103.

He said he believes that the new facility will help the Lao side improve examination and treatment quality. It is also a contribution to the special solidarity between the two armies.

Khamphet Sisanone, deputy head of Laos’s General Department of Logistics, thanked the Vietnamese defence ministry and the doctors of Central Military Hospital 108 for producing the telemedicine system.

He considered it a meaningful gift as Hospital 103 is upgrading its infrastructure and equipment.-VNA
