The pandemic unleashed the potential of digital healthcare
Digital health has already been on the steady rise with the rapid increase in online technology innovations and the consumerism of healthcare. Even before the pandemic outbreak, China’s digital medical services market is expected to reach over 59 million users by the end of 2020 and would grow over 20 times by 2026, reaching a potential market size of $28 billion.
The adoption of digital health in China
During the epidemic, the increased use of digital platforms is one of the clear characteristics of the health sector. Local governments have increased the application of digital technology. 8 provinces have implemented internet-based medical insurance payments, including Hubei, Shanghai, Beijing, Zhejiang, Jiangsu, Sichuan, Heilongjiang and Guangdong. At the peak of the epidemic, the number of people assessing the tele-consults through internet channels increased by 17 times. E-commerce medicine and at-home delivery service have created a key role in the telemedicine ecosystem. Online medical merchants have gained huge progress. Tech giants deployed a large number of virtual support resources to match their service to the needs related to the epidemic. For instance, Alibaba has launched a free online diagnostic service and provide medicine delivery services for some patients with chronic diseases. Tencent launched an internet service platform, Tencent Health Mini Program, to provide comprehensive prevention and control solutions with a number of business partners. JD Health provides free 24-hour consultation.
