British leadership in digital healthcare is being showcased to potential Chinese partners via a special new site in the People′s Republic.
The Healthcare is GREAT UK digital health demonstration centre is now open at a facility called the Ningbo Number 2 Hospital in Zhejiang Province.
Described by the Department of Health as a “ground-breaking initiative” set up between the UK and local officials, the demonstration centre is meant to showcase the UK′s expertise in digital healthcare.
It is doing so by bringing world-leading British health IT companies together under one roof, allowing Chinese visitors to observe, learn and interact with the participating companies′ products and services.
Solutions available for examination by visitors include video-based telemedicine and telehealth, self-care online platforms for long-term conditions, including dementia diagnosis, electronic patient records packages, medicine management solutions, Big Data and patient satisfaction analytics software, says the Department.
‘A change in quality′
For Howard Lyons, Managing Director of Healthcare UK, “The launch of the Demonstrator represents a significant milestone in the developing collaboration between leading British Health IT organisations and progressive healthcare providers in Zhejiang Province.
“I believe the benefits to be gained will lead to a step change in the quality of healthcare available to the citizens of China.”
Healthcare UK helps UK healthcare providers do more business overseas.
The centre will be open for the next 9 months.
