China issues rules on e-health care delivery

October 24, 2018, BioWorld MedTech

Christopher Chen spoke with BioWorld MedTech regarding China’s move to regulate e-health care services. Mr. Chen says, “The rules make open channels for other e-health care collaborations. Med-tech companies and private health care companies may be able to participate in health care practice as a collaborator in an e-hospital. The promulgation of these rules could help diversify health care practice. These companies will need to find a qualified partner, which is usually a public hospital or clinic, and ensure that they are working with qualified physicians in their chosen areas.” In regards to expanding care’s parameters, he says, “As the scope of e-health care is limited to chronic or common disease and not applicable to first visits, the e-health care services are treated more like a supplement to traditional clinics and diagnostics. The focus appears to be more on lessening delays and improving efficiency for follow-up care.”
