Alibaba Health Launches Health and Medical Information Look-up Service

TechWeb, 5/08/18

Chinese e-commerce conglomerate Alibaba Group's (NYSE: BABA) healthcare subsidiary Alibaba Health Information Technology (0241.HK) recently launched a new authoritative health and medical information look-up service called Yijulu, in partnership with government, medical, and media organizations including China's national-level medicine and healthcare big data platform, Scientific and Technical Documentation Press, Beijing Cancer Hospital at Beijing University, and health magazine Jiankang Shibao.

Yijulu provides medical knowledge map resources that users can search using their mobile phone and offers textbook medical knowledge and treatment plan information in a format that can be easily understood and used by patients. Alibaba Health said that all of the platform's information was created by a team of disease experts, edited by Scientific and Technical Documentation Press, and reviewed by a team of experts prior to distribution online.

Yijulu can now be accessed through the Alibaba Health app. Users can search for names of diseases to look up detailed information including disease prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and post-treatment care recommendations.

Alibaba Health said that the platform currently includes prevention and treatment information for nearly 100 common illnesses and 12 cancers and rare diseases with relatively high incidence rates. It plans to expand the platform next year to cover a wide range of medical disciplines, diseases, and healthcare topics, including prevention and treatment information for more than 2,500 diseases.
