The move is part of a recent Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) jointly signed by the company and the city’s authorities.

As planned, FPT’s IS company will help build up databases and software for patients’ medical files at 5 hospitals in the 1st stage in 2017.

The company also provides IT solutions for urban traffic as well as digital maps in management of buses and GPS car tracking.

Following the agreement, FPT’s IS will help the city become a beacon for advanced IT applications in e-heath, human resource training in IT and IT transfer.

According to the city’s Department of Transport, 1,300 buses and 879 trucks have already been fitted with GPS tracking equipment.

Da Nang officially launched its e-government initiative in 2014, and offered free wireless internet services, with a maximum of 20,000 connections for local residents and tourists at major public spaces and streets across the city.

The city had provided 1,196 on-line administration procedures, including one-stop shops, residential management, public transport and water supervision through the e-government system.

Last year, the city and the military-owned telecommunications group Viettel signed a MoU for developing Da Nang into a ‘smart city’ by 2020.
