In 2020, the new crown epidemic swept the world, causing the world to experience major changes unseen in a century. In critical moments, China's medical system has shown extraordinary resilience. At the beginning of the outbreak, a solid protection network was quickly built to effectively control the spread of the epidemic. China's medical and health leaders are very proud of this. The report shows that 96% of Chinese respondents highly approve of the resilience of the medical system under the epidemic, which is higher than that of many other countries.

In the survey, 90% of Chinese medical and health leaders expressed their confidence in the future development of China's medical system.
In the survey, there is one piece of data that is quite exciting. When asked what factors would hinder the future planning of hospitals or medical institutions, only about one-third (34%) of Chinese respondents cited the epidemic as the main external factor hindering their future planning capabilities. This data is significantly lower than the 14 market average (68%), which in a sense reflects the resilience of China's healthcare system and the confidence of relevant managers in the future.

Compared with the traditional medical model that takes the number of consultations as an important indicator, "value-based medical care" is committed to providing patients with better diagnosis and treatment results at a lower cost.
Actively embrace digital transformation, artificial intelligence and remote interconnection empower hospital operations
The epidemic may have accelerated the digitalization process in the medical and health field. Chinese medical and health leaders are currently investing heavily in digital technology, especially in the two areas of artificial intelligence (47%) and telemedicine (47%). At present, they focus on the improvement of operational efficiency (36%) brought by artificial intelligence, and expect that artificial intelligence can play a greater value in the prediction of care results (31%) and integrated diagnosis (32%) in the future. In the next three years, the investment focus of Chinese medical and health leaders may be more clearly inclined to artificial intelligence (68%), so as to give full play to the value of smart technology, further strengthen the degree of informatization in hospitals, and thus empower hospital operations manage.
In response to the epidemic, the Chinese medical system has undoubtedly handed over an excellent "answer sheet", but Chinese medical and health leaders will not stop there. In the face of huge medical needs, they are exploring new ways of care. Break through the barriers inside and outside the hospital and improve the accessibility of medical services. As a result, remote patient monitoring solutions have become the focus (31%) of Chinese medical and health leaders who are currently investing heavily. Chinese medical and health leaders also stated in the survey that, on average, about one-fifth of daily care is carried out outside hospitals or medical institutions, and in the next three years, this proportion is expected to usher in a small percentage. Increase (23%).
