Hi! Welcome to “About China”!
In today’s program, we will talk about ”medical partnerships”.
China would press to strengthen medical partnerships to provide better health management and care for urban and rural residents，said by Premier Li Keqiang during the State Council's executive meeting on April 12.
Medical partnerships refer to the regional medical association or medical cooperation, which is the integration of medical resources in the same area. Generally, medical partnerships are composed of tertiary hospitals, second-class hospitals, community hospitals and rural hospitals.
To strengthen medical partnerships，more diversified forms of medical partnerships will be encouraged, with top-tier hospitals taking on leading roles. The guidelines encourage an internet-based medical information platform to help better diagnose and prescribe treatments for rural patients，allowing a more balanced allocation of resources across different levels of medical centers.
