Prof. Xiaosong Yu, director of the general medicine branch of Chinese Medical Association was invited to be the chief physician of the center.

General practitioners serve as the health gatekeeper for community residents at the grassroots level of a country’s multi-level health system. They offer comprehensive services ranging from disease prevention and diagnosis to health management. As the COVID-19 prevention situation normalizes, their role is becoming more important.
The General Medicine Center will add more value to JD Health’s family doctor telemedicine service, ensuring comprehensive and authoritative healthcare support for its family-oriented users.
Lijun Xin, CEO of JD Health said that “with the launch of the General Medicine Center, JD Health can further use its advantages in the telemedicine industry to promote the development of general medicine in China and its ‘internet+’ service innovation, which in turn will also strengthen the company’s family doctor services.”
According to Prof. Xiaosong Yu, it will take 10 years for JD Health to build China’s largest community of general practitioners, the largest center for general medicine research, and the largest support platform for general practitioners training and public education.
