Ping An Good Doctor and Chugai Pharma China Jointly Establish a Whole Course Management System for Osteoporosis Patients
Ping An Healthcare and Technology Company Limited ("Ping An Good Doctor"; Stock Code: 1833.HK) announced that it had entered into a strategic partnership with a leading Japanese pharmaceutical company, Chugai Pharma China Co., Ltd., (“Chugai Pharma China”), to set up an osteoporosis clinic and establish a whole course management system for osteoporosis patients. The partnership strives to increase the accessibility to quality innovative drugs and benefit osteoporosis patients.
Jointly establish a whole course management system for osteoporosis patients
Osteoporosis is a major threat to the health of middle-aged and elderly people. Patients need to receive standardized drug treatment so as to increase their bone density. Approximately one-fifth of the population aged over 50 years suffer from osteoporosis in China, according to statistics, but their awareness rate of the disease is only 7%. In addition, osteoporosis has a high false-negative rate and the treatment is complex as it involves multiple medical departments including orthopedics, endocrinology, rheumatology and immunology etc. It also lacks a professional full-cycle care management platform. Therefore, it is important to enhance the awareness of osteoporosis and raise health consciousness among the public.
To address the pain points for diagnosis and treatment of osteoporosis, Ping An Good Doctor and Chugai Pharma China sets up a management platform for osteoporosis patients and establishes a new full-cycle management system. The clinic will integrate services for osteoporosis patients including health education, disease prevention, consultation, drug purchase and rehabilitation etc., so as to optimize the online and offline closed-loop management system. It will also generate a life-cycle membership file for each patient based on the family doctor membership and coordinate the online and offline healthcare services for them. In addition, Ping An Good Doctor will seek to explore further cooperation with Chugai Pharma China in terms of hospital, osteoporosis specialist doctors and professional training.
Online healthcare services empower drug distribution and enhance accessibility to quality innovative drugs
Ping An Good Doctor will cooperate with Chugai Pharma China to enhance drug accessibility, medication guidance management, and sharing of pioneering academic findings, so that online healthcare services can empower drugs development and distribution to a fullest extent and bring benefits to more patients. Ping An Good Doctor and Chugai Pharma China will unveil an innovative drug in China. Based on the cooperation, Ping An Good Doctor will provide personalized solutions for users and adjust treatment strategies by tracking health data in a timely manner, and extend quality drugs to more osteoporosis patients through in-depth research on application.
