SHANGHAI, Dec. 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- China's leading one-stop healthcare ecosystem platform Ping An Health Medical Technology Company Limited ("Ping An Good Doctor" or the "Company", stock code: 01833.HK) announced the results of its Double 12 National Healthcare Day campaign of 2018. The sales revenue and the number of participating users of Ping An Good Doctor Health Mall increased by 214.3% and 182.2% year-on-year, respectively.
This year's Double 12 National Healthcare Day (December 12th) was focused on young consumers and consumption upgrade. Ping An Good Doctor, together with well-known manufacturers such as BY-HEALTH, Guoda Drugstores, Besunyen and Joyoung, offered young consumers a range of health products to help them pursue a healthy lifestyle. The sales volume of products such as Yang Sheng Tang's vitamin E, honey sold by Beijing Tong Ren Tang and Devondale Full Cream Milk Powder for adults were all more than 10 times the average daily sales volume. The sales volume of these three products ranked first in the nutrition and healthcare, nourishing foods and health foods category respectively.
Sales revenues from traditional winter nourishing foods increased by 452.4% compared with the same period last year, showing that a growing number of young people take tonics and nourishing foods in the winter season. Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) practices dictate that people should supplement the body, absorb nutrients and improve their immune system during the autumn and winter seasons.
It is important to choose nourishing foods based on each individual's personal constitution, so Ping An Good Doctor conducted a free online healthcare consultation during the campaign. Experienced TCM doctors provided recommendations on healthcare and nourishing solutions, and their advice proved to be a popular feature of the campaign.
Ping An Good Doctor cooperated with nearly 450 medical institutions across more than 100 Chinese cities to launch promotional campaigns, such as an 88% discount on annual medical examinations, and "buy one medical examination, get one teeth cleaning free" packages. The AI Doctor at Ping An Good Doctor's online platform provided users with interpretation of their medical reports. On 12 December, the sales revenue of the consumer medical products offered at the Company's health mall, including medical examinations, teeth whitening and cleaning, and genetic testing, increased by 191.6% year-on-year.
The success of Ping An Good Doctor's Double 12 National Healthcare Day campaign reveals the growing trend of Chinese people paying closer attention to their health, and spending more money to improve it. Ping An Good Doctor also invited doctors, media and key opinion leaders to share their disease prevention and treatment knowledge, healthcare and weight-loss tips and winter nourishing experiences through various channels, such as through live streaming, the "health headlines" platform and internet forums. Ping An Good Doctor's health headlines pushed professional healthcare and medical news feeds to more than 50 million people, helping more people build a healthy lifestyle.
