Premier Li Keqiang visited the first people’s hospital of Yinchuan during his tour to Ningxia autonomous region, saying he expected Ningxia to take the lead in Internet Plus healthcare.
In recent years, Ningxia has developed their remote diagnosis system that makes high-quality health services easily accessible. Before, some patients had to go to Beijing or the provincial capital Yinchuan to see a better doctor, but now they can receive quality healthcare services remotely, according to a local official.
The Premier said that Internet Plus healthcare not only brings convenience to patients, but also promotes fairness, spreading superior healthcare resources to more people.
He hoped that Ningxia can take the lead in constructing an Internet Plus healthcare demonstration zone to benefit surrounding areas and ethnic groups, adding that the government will provide support in this regard.
