SICHUAN PROVINCE'S TELEMEDICINE SERVICES

  • During the 12-year duration of the telemedicine initiative, around 11,897 teleconsultations were conducted.
  • Furthermore, 39.8% of the initial medical assessments were changed after the sessions. With regard to the initially-prescribed treatments, around 55% were changed after the sessions.
  • The service also resulted in $3.2 million worth of savings for the patients and around $3.7 million for the physicians.
