Technology advancements are rapidly changing the healthcare sector. Mobile technology helps doctors and nurses monitor patients. Wearable medical technology means more patients can be treated remotely, perhaps from the comfort of their home. Accessibility to massive amounts of data is also altering the healthcare environment. There are more accurate diagnoses, more studies to review, more information to process.
Leading the charge with innovative ideas that embrace the changing environment of healthcare, the South Korean company CHA Medical Group, under the leadership of Dr. Kwang Yul Cha, is breaking ground in the field of biomedicine with more research and development put into infertility and stem cell.

The goal of Dr. Cha is to construct a “Bio City,” with world-class research, pharmaceutical companies, bio firms, and a general hospital with 1,000 beds, and a wellness center that will be the hub for its residents.
