by Hui Zhang
JD Health’s CEO Lijun Xin will serve as special advisor to the Global T/CM Health Knowledge Alliance Advisory Committee, with an aim to support innovation and awareness of traditional Chinese medicine.
“Working with the Global T/CM Health Knowledge Alliance will provide a good opportunity for integrating TCM with the whole health industry, as well as boosting the industrialization, informatization and globalization of TCM,” Xin said.
The agreement, which was announced October 16th, is a recognition of JD Health’s advancements in the field of “Internet + TCM”, and its commitment to exploring the field of traditional Chinese medicine.
JD Health launched a TCM center led by a team of TCM veterans to provide professional online consultations, breaking down the barriers that have made it difficult for people to see top-level TCM doctors in China.
Among the almost 100 renowned doctors at JD Health’s TCM center are Dr. Xuemin Shi, one of China’s most well-known acupuncture masters, and an academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering and TCM master Dr. Diangui Li.
Based on the doctors’ areas of expertise, JD Health has established a number of TCM sub-centers for specialties including renal, respiratory, men’s, oncology, endocrine and gynecology, which can provide patients with integrated online and offline services covering the whole course of illness before, during and after the consultation.
As a member of the China-Central and Eastern European Network of Think Tanks, the Global T/CM Health Knowledge Alliance is a new international alliance focusing on Chinese medicine under the guidance of the Beijing Administration of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Since its establishment, the Global T/CM and Health Knowledge Alliance has aimed to connect the entire industrial chain of health; and promote cross-border, cross-disciplinary cooperation to facilitate the transformation of healthcare and the health industry including Traditional Chinese Medicine.
The Advisory Committee is composed of representatives of international organizations, heads of state and dignitaries, Chinese government officials, representatives of domestic and foreign industry associations, scholars, famous enterprises and their leaders.
