Smart exec lone PH speaker in KL gab

An executive of Smart Communications Inc. is the only Filipino slated to speak at the Telecom Asia Awards and Conference on April 17 in Kuala Lumpur.

Smart Public Affairs Head Ramon Isberto will give a talk on Smart’s m-health program called Secured Health Information and Network Exchange or SHINE, which was adjudged the Best Community Telecom Project in last year’s Telecom Asia Awards.

SHINE is a web- and mobile-based system for health professionals and facilities which features an e-referral system, electronic medical records, patient reminders, and reports generation.

Joining Isberto in the roster of conference speakers are officials of companies like Huawei, Telefonica Asia, StarHub, and SK Telecom.

The conference is part of the 16th Telecom Asia Awards, the region’s longest-running awards for innovative and outstanding performance by Asian service providers and industry executives.

Smart received a record number of awards and citations in last year’s Telecom Asia Awards, including the Best Community Telecom Project citation and the Best Emerging Market Carrier award. Its president and chief executive officer, Napoleon Nazareno, was also named Telecom CEO of the Year.

This year, Smart is again nominated for Best Emerging Market Carrier. Its Project NOAH (Nationwide Operational Assessment of Hazards) Mobile, an Android application of the Department of Science and Technology’s website for disaster prevention and mitigation, is nominated for Best Community Telecom Project.
