Ping An Good Doctor Brought Numerous Cutting-edge AI Medical Technology Achievements to 80th Pharm China
Pharm China is one of the most prestigious and longest-running trade fairs for pharmaceutical preparations, healthcare products and technical services in China. It is dedicated to advocating the concept of "medical technology creates a healthy future" and is the industry event that best represents the future development trends of the pharmaceutical industry.
The Company's one-minute clinic was the star attraction at Pharm China. Developed by Ping An Good Doctor, it is the first unmanned clinic in China to be commercially applied on a large scale. Users sit down in the booth and start a conversation with a doctor. With the help of on-site examination equipment, the AI Doctor and/or doctors make a preliminary diagnosis for the patients. Patients can then purchase medicine according to the doctor's recommendations from the nearby smart medicine cabinet, which offers more than 100 kinds of commonly used drugs.
A Ping An Good Doctor spokesperson said, "The one-minute clinic connects our in-house medical team, which consists of more than a thousand medical personnel, with our AI technology, AI Doctor. It also combines the online consultation with our smart medicine cabinet, realizing a one-stop solution offering AI pre-diagnosis, online consultation and purchase of medicines. The one-minute clinic has received high praise from its users."
The Company's AI technology has also made breakthroughs in the field of Traditional Chinese Medicine ("TCM"). The core product of the Modern Physician Hua Tuo program, the smart pulse-taking device, has attracted a lot of attention. The device can quickly identify and take the pulse of the user when he or she places it over their wrist. The results and graphic data collected by the device will be transferred to the TCM doctors, helping them to make a diagnosis and recommend treatment.
A Ping An Good Doctor spokesperson said, "The AI technology allows the Modern Physician Hua Tuo program to collect and memorize the information of TCM patients that is normally collected by doctors. The program then accumulates and corrects the collected data, innovatively advancing the standardization, informationization and intelligence of TCM practices."
