China builds 158 Internet hospitals to curb congestion
Mao Qun'an, a director of the National Health Commission, said at the second Digital China Summit that 19 provinces, or over half of China's provincial-level regions, had established provincial telemedicine platforms.
The central government has also earmarked 670 million yuan (99 million US dollars) in special funds to add telemedical and other equipment in primary-level health institutions in impoverished counties.
