China Seeks to Transform Healthcare Sector with Information Technology
Date:4/28/2009

New White Paper by Network Dynamics Associates Outlines China's

Stimulus Plan and Strategy for e-Health Innovation

China has announced a $124 billion stimulus package to reform the nation's healthcare sector. The plan calls for digital hospitalization, adoption of electronic medical records, and next-generation information networks. The government seeks to dramatically improve healthcare facilities and deploy virtual healthcare services that can help overcome disparities between rich and poor. The stakes are high for the government - and for technology companies in this large and fast-moving market.

WESTON, Conn., April 28 /PRNewswire/ -- A new white paper from Network Dynamics Associates summarizes business opportunities created by China's plan to reform its healthcare system and embrace information and communications technology. Beijing's $124 billion (RMB 850 billion) stimulus package will fundamentally upgrade healthcare services including adoption of Electronic Health Records (EHR) and Regional Health Information Networks (RHIN). The government hopes to eliminate hospital crowding, lower patient healthcare costs, strengthen pandemic surveillance, and establish virtual e-health services to overcome the wide gap in service quality for healthcare between China's sophisticated cities and vast rural countryside.

"China is determined to reinvent its healthcare system," states Ken Zita, Network Dynamics Associates President. "The stimulus package demonstrates China's conviction to aggressively adopt information technology in support of social transformation."

The whitepaper, available on the web at www.ndaventures.com, succinctly analyzes the policy priorities of China's stimulus package, healthcare IT market size, and opportunities for international technology firms. It reflects recent discussions in China with senior government officials, hospital IT directors, industry experts and leading technology firms. The research was conducted as part of a Definitional Mission for the U.S. Trade and Development Agency to define export opportunities in the information and communications technology sector.
