This Platform is designed to elevate the clinical decision-making acumen and patient service capabilities of healthcare professionals, thereby delivering optimal solutions for clinical diagnoses and treatments of prevalent diseases.
The scope of common diseases includes cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, cancer, chronic respiratory diseases, diabetes, and other major chronic diseases. These medical conditions pose both significant and enduring health risks to patients due to their high incidence rate. In 2021, the premature death rate in China from four types of major chronic diseases, namely cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, cancer, chronic respiratory diseases, and diabetes, was 15.3%. Timely, scientific, and efficacious treatment strategies are paramount in assuaging the suffering of patients from common diseases and enhancing the prognosis of these diseases. As of the end of 2021, China had approximately 4.28 million physicians. Given the sheer volume of patients afflicted with common diseases, the medical fraternity grapples with colossal pressure, signaling an urgent need to amplify diagnostic efficiency and bolster patient service capabilities.
In alignment with the Guidance on Strengthening Continuing Medical Education by China's National Health Commission, major administrative regions including provinces, cities, counties, and districts in China are poised to fully adopt information management for continuing medical education and conduct suitable continuing medical education activities by leveraging the power of distance education methods. In light of this development, Zhongchao established the Platform to follow clinical practice guidelines, standardize diagnostic and treatment behaviors, and facilitate diagnostic and treatment experiences sharing. This Platform enables physicians to access educational content conveniently through various digital devices, including computers, tablets, and mobile phones.
The Company is committed to building the Platform a reservoir of systematic courses curated by experts from various fields across the country. The content covers 19 disciplines, including cardiology, respiratory medicine, gastroenterology, infectious disease, rheumatology and immunology, nephrology, hematology, endocrinology, neurology, psychiatry, vascular surgery, orthopedics, urology, neurosurgery, obstetrics and gynecology, otolaryngology, hepatology, pediatrics, and parenteral nutrition, 12 of which involve major diseases such as cancer.
Mr. Weiguang Yang, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Zhongchao, commented, "We are excited about the launch of the Platform. We expect that the Platform will be instrumental in providing high-caliber education and training services for Chinese physicians across a more diverse range of disciplines and on a wider scale. This initiative serves our broader mission of promoting physicians to improve their diagnostic and treatment capabilities and ultimately culminate in greater benefits for patients."
