Telehealth trialled in Xinjiang regional hospitals

Liu Xiaohong, deputy director of the cardiovascular medicine department of Karamay Central Hospital, successfully worked with Wang Yan, an expert from Wuhan Tongji Hospital, through a teleconsultation platform to develop ideal treatment plans for two cardiovascular patients.
The two elderly patients have been diagnosed with coronary heart disease and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, respectively, and have been given proper treatment after a series of check-ups, including electrocardiograms and CT scans, and teleconsultation video conferences.
This is not the first time that Karamay Central Hospital has integrated telecommunication technology with diagnosis and treatment. It is cooperating with more than 20 famous hospitals from around China to deliver high-quality medical service and care.
