City to improve health care services
Shanghai will further improve health services to establish a multi-level and value-based system, Wu Jinglei, director of the Shanghai Health Commission, said at a recent forum.
“The payment-end reform for health care, facilitated by digital payment technology, has enabled us to better track patients and paint a complete picture of their conditions,” Wu said at the third International Healthcare and Finance Innovation Forum hosted by the School of Management, Fudan University and leading health care companies.
“The new technologies help us to design a better health care network that can best serve patients at the lowest cost and with the greatest value,” Wu said.
He said Shanghai will reshape the health care sector, and new formats of payment and innovation in financial services are facilitating the progress.
At the forum, a white paper about a value-based health care was made public to introduce the best practice in innovative health care reform. The book was written by the Health Finance Research Office at Fudan University and Ask Health.
