WeDoctor’s “Chinese HMO” Contributes “Chinese Wisdom” to Worldwide Health Reform

HONG KONG,
CHINA - 
Media OutReach - 28 September 2018
The Third Asian Healthcare Leadership Summit (AHLS) was held
in Singapore's Sentosa World of Interest
from September 21 to September 22. One of the most influential conferences in the field of global
healthcare,
the conference was attended by
more than 500
VIP guests from more than 20 countries on five continents. As the only Chinese
enterprise invited,
We Doctor Holdings Limited
("WeDoctor") shared the story of China's technology-driven medical upgrade and
WeDoctor
's "Chinese Health Management Organization ("HMO")" with guests from around the world.

 

China has nearly one-fifth of
the world's population, but the average number of doctors per thousand is only
2.1, far less than that in Europe and
the United States. Facing the problems of an overwhelming number of
patients in the first-class hospitals at Grade 3 and the shortage of medical
resources in remote areas,
China has found a unique solution to
balance medical resources and protect the health of families and individuals
through scientific and technological means such as the Internet
and artificial intelligence.

 

Jerry Liao, founder and CEO of WeDoctor, introduced in his keynote speech that WeDoctor has been helping hospitals, doctors and patients to improve the efficiency of medical services from the  starting point
of appointment registration. Since its establishment
eight years ago,
WeDoctor has connected more
than 2,700 hospitals, 240,000 doctors and more than 20,000 pharmacies in China,
becoming the country's largest doctor-patient matching platform and big data
platform for medical and
healthcare, helping doctors to better serve patients and enabling patients to find good
doctors nearby.

 

"Just 13 days ago, the first
base of
the WeDoctor HMO was established
in Chengdu, Sichuan
," Jerry Liao said. He elaborated that the service base can connect the WeDoctor platform through cloud hospital information systems
("HIS") and provide
convenient medical and health services for individuals, families and
institutions
, and execute its "online +
offline, general practice + specialty, whole person + whole process"
strategy through intelligent health terminals.

 

George Papandreou, former Greek Prime Minister and
President of Socialist International,
met with Jerry Liao after the meeting, expressing the view that that the "Chinese HMO" model led by WeDoctor is exciting and different from Caesar's in the United
States, the application of WeDoctor HMO model in China is more flexible, and
all relevant aspects of the system have been comprehensively and systematically
implemented for the first time.

 

The "WeDoctor Tong"
and "WeDoctor Smart Clinic" independently developed
using WeDoctor science and technology were presented at
the conference, attracting guests from all over the
world to stop by and visit and
becoming the most sought
after "black technology" of medical
healthcare at the event.
For common minor ailments, the user can call the health manager and transfer
to the family doctor with the press of one key to
get health guidance quickly. For urgent and serious diseases, family doctors
can help to quickly refer patients to physical medical institutions below the
line and meet the health care needs of individuals and family users in one
stop.

 

Catherine Mohr, an American medical technology expert, experienced a one-key inquiry service through the WeDoctor services, was connected to doctors within 30 seconds and completed an online consultation within 15 minutes. She said,
"China's Smart Home Medical Service is already very advanced, and such a
response speed is unimaginable in the United States."

 

The WeDoctor Smart Clinic is an "Intelligent Medical Station" for all kinds of
institutions to serve the health
needs of employees. It
consists of an intelligent mobile medical all-in-one machine, an intelligent
medicine cabinet and a series of intelligent peripherals for inspection. It
provides one-stop medical
healthcare services such as offline first diagnosis, online re-examination,
consultation and follow-up and
online medicine purchase
for institutional users such as enterprises, nursing homes, communities and
schools.

 

Suhas Kshirsagar from India commented, "China's technology is really refreshing, and
WeDoctor has made a unique and innovative attempt to solve the medical problems
of the world's largest population. India is also a populous country, and we
look forward to seeing such products in India as soon as possible."

 

Jerry Liao revealed that
WeDoctor is speeding up the
implementation of its HMO's strategy and has now
opened five general practice centers in Beijing, Hangzhou, Nanjing and Chengdu,
and plans to
launch 100 more in the next three years. The WeDoctor Tong service
has entered

the homes of
millions of families in China,
and the WeDoctor Cloud Patrol Service has served nearly ten million grassroots
users. This year, WeDoctor also took a strategic stake in
a new IVF Medical Group, Hong Kong's largest assisted
reproductive medical group, and set up a joint venture with Asia-Pacific
leading idsMED Group to
collaborate in building an
intelligent medical
ecosystem and become a
"health gatekeeper" for hundreds of millions of families.
