Shenzhen, Tencent Ally on Health Data, Electronic Health Codes and Imaging Services

Chinanews, 5/30/18

The Shenzhen Health and Family Planning Commission and Chinese internet conglomerate Tencent (0700.HK) recently signed a strategic partnership agreement, under which the parties will cooperate deeply in the Internet + medical services domain.

Under the agreement, the parties will develop a public healthcare big data platform for Shenzhen residents. In the future, all of Shenzhen's healthcare big data resources will be connected, processed, and analyzed, so that when city residents book medical appointments they will be able to view information about Shenzhen hospital and physician resources and access other services.

In addition, the parties will use residents' healthcare records to create a WeChat-based electronic health code system, which will be used for a full range of Internet+ health and sanitation services. In the future, medical institutions will be able to issue electronic health codes through WeChat public accounts and applets. City residents will be able to store codes in their WeChat Wallet and use them when they arrive at a hospital to access medical treatment and insurance payment services. After other provincial and national healthcare information platforms have been linked together, Tencent hopes to allow users to use the code system to access medical treatment services at other hospitals throughout Sichuan province and the rest of the country.

In addition, using Tencent's AI-based medical imaging product AI Medical Innovation System (AIMIS) ("Miying" in Chinese), the parties will cooperate on innovative research projects in the AI smart services domain including medical imaging, diagnosis support, educational tool, and medical quality control projects. They will also create a Shenzhen medical imaging AI platform and explore standards for medical diagnosis.
