China Launches 158 Online Hospitals To Curb Congestion



China’s medical authority said on Wednesday that 158 Internet hospitals had been built, to address congestion in large urban hospitals.

Mao Qun’an, Director of the National Health Commission, said at the second Digital China Summit that 19 provinces, noting that over half of China’s provincial-level regions, had established provincial tele-medicine platforms.

The central government has also earmarked 99 million U.S. dollars in special funds to add tele-medical and other equipment in primary-level health institutions in impoverished counties.

The commission is now working to realise online services in second and tertiary hospitals, he said.

China’s has a three-tier hospital grading system with the tertiary being the highest.

Internet hospitals refer to those offering medical services, such as consultation and diagnosis, online.

In particular, they are expected to help tackle the scarcity of medical equipment and practitioners in some parts of China.

The three-day Digital China Summit, which concluded on May 1, highlights the latest information technologies that have swept through the country’s government, industries and society.

    I’m amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s equally educative and interesting, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head.
    The issue is something not enough people are speaking intelligently
    about. I’m very happy I found this during my hunt
    for something concerning this.
