Expert View

Will Zhang
President, Corporate Strategy Department, Huawei
The healthcare industry is entering a new era of “digital health”, and a golden age of industry that betters people’s livelihoods is about to begin. Global developments in digital health are bringing digital transformations to the healthcare industry. We hope that experts from all industries can inspire each other and work together with an open mind, to make applications and ecosystems thrive and build a digital and intelligent world.
Jinsong Ouyang
Director, Instrument Technology and Economy Institute
When developing the digital health industry, we must uphold the essential principle of safety and effectiveness, strengthen risk-based supervision, focus on the reconstruction of the industry value chain, accelerate the development of a standardized innovation system, and promote the orderly and sound industry development.
Xiong Han
Vice Director, Security and New Technology Professional Committee, Chinese Health Information Association
Informatization is a “painful” process for hospitals, as a large number of information silos need to be aligned. Building clouds and networks to meet informatization requirements is the key. We should pay attention to network and data security when migrating information systems to the cloud, as it is one of the major factors that determines whether the healthcare cloud can be implemented.
Haotian Lin
Deputy Director, Zhongshan Ophthalmic Center, Sun Yat-Sen University
Artificial intelligence and computer vision are closely related to our own vision. Dividing imaging data into the smallest units possible can improve identification efficiency and accuracy. There are three key words for healthcare data: data, privacy, and trust. Blockchain can perfectly solve the problems that plague these key areas. Through blockchain, smart contracts, and multi-medical center cooperation, we can ensure patients take their medicine as prescribed.
Qingjun Lu
Internet + Healthcare has become a part of our national strategy. Related policies and supervision mechanisms have been gradually improving. 5G + Smart Healthcare drives technological improvements and innovations in the healthcare industry and facilitates digital transformations.
Qing Guo
Director, Health Management Sub-committee
The key to health management is to build a new health service model, including health checks, health assessments, timely intervention, and data management. This requires a comprehensive service system that covers all aspects and processes related to healthcare. This is only possible with the support of new technologies and the cooperation of partners across the healthcare industry.
Lishan Ye
Director, Xiamen Health and Medical Big Data Cente
Personal health records (PHRs) contain health data throughout people’s life. They are useful for preventing and controlling chronic diseases. They can also empower the development of medical instrument R&D and digital health services, and facilitate insurance claim settlement and clinical decision-making. However, PHR data sources are complex, sharing data may cause data breaches, posing security risks.
