JD Health Celebrates Traditional Chinese Medicine Day
by Yuchuan Wang
JD Health’s Traditional Chinese Medicine（TCM）Center launched free online consultation services today, to celebrate Traditional Chinese Medicine Day, which falls on Mar. 17 of every year since 1929, to promote the heritage of TCM globally.
In addition, Mengqiang Ren, deputy chief physician of acupuncture from Beijing Hospital of Integrated Traditional Chinese and Western Medicine, will do a livestream to share TCM knowledge on healthcare in springtime for JD Health’s users.
With the convergence of new technologies such as big data, cloud computing, IoT, AI and 5G, online TCM consultations are being accepted by an increasing group of people. For example, as an important TCM method to determine a patient’s physical condition, tongue diagnosis can be easily conducted online by having the patient upload a photo of his or her tongue.
So far, over 9,000 TCM doctors have joined JD Health, including seven TCM masters and nine distinguished veteran doctors.
Apart from consulting online, getting prescriptions, herbal decoctions and receiving medicine deliveries at customers’ doorsteps are becoming a new normal for JD Health users. “As soon as a patient gets the prescription from our doctors, the platform can provide immediate herbal decoctions or prepare decoction pieces and deliver to the user as fast as in 24 hours, thanks to JD.com’s nationwide logistics infrastructure,” said Chunye Wang, a TCM doctor at JD Health.
“On the annual TCM Day, JD Health hopes to further promote the development of TCM and guard the health of Chinese people through high-quality and comprehensive internet-based TCM services,” said Ximu Li, director of JD Health’s TCM Center.
