17 Smart quarantine information
system project

Korea Centers for Disease Control established a quarantine system in Korea which utilized the computerized information system called Smart Quarantine System to improve the traditional quarantine system focused on the fever monitoring system.

Project introduction

The Smart Quarantine frame-work was based on the information and communication technology (ICT) system that gathered information on arrivals from countries where infectious diseases have occurred and shared this information with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Health Insurance Review & Assessment Service, telecommunication companies and the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (KCDC). The Smart Quarantine System monitored the health of those who arrived in the country during the incubation period of the infectious diseases. In particular, the KCDC will establish the world’s first advanced national quarantine system utilizing roaming data of overseas arrivals from countries at risk of infectious diseases.
