HTC's partners include Industrial Technology Research Institute's (ITRI) Electronic and Optoelectronic System Research Laboratories, Taipei Medical University Hospital, and several other hospitals.

ITRI Electronic and Optoelectronic System Research Laboratories Deputy Head Hau Jin-ming stated “We are very pleased to promote industrial innovation in collaboration with HTC and anticipate that the creation of a smart wearable health IoT platform will bring about a more affordable and higher quality health care environment for consumers.”

Currently HTC is collaborating with Taiwanese hospitals and the development of a “Drug Notification” smart phone APP. After scanning of prescription QR codes, the APP will remind patients of details such as the times medication should be taken and side effects.

HTC is also conducting research and development on a type of mobile health care measurement instrument called the “Tricorder” which will collect participants' physiological information using a variety of sensing technologies. After utilizing cloud technology and artificial intelligence to conduct operational analysis, it will have the capacity to assess the risk of up to twelve related diseases.
