Digitalization in Chinese Public Healthcare System
Was Monday late night in a public childrens’ hospital in Beijing. Even though I am living here for almost a decade, the incredible speed of digital technology development and integration in streaming logistic and service processes keeps amazing me almost daily.
Reserve your ticket online in the hospital APP with your medical insurance card; after giving blood or doing a scan, wait for a notice sound in the APP on your smartphone to inform when the picture or results are ready and you can go to the printing machine to print out by yourself, only by scanning your medical insurance card; pay the services and medicines by machine with Wechat or Alipay app and the payment is directly registered on your medical insurance card.
And don’t forget the availability of a good coffee from Belgium, very important and all paid by Wechat 😊
