Ding Xiang Yuan (DXY), an online social networking service for China’s physicians and medical professionals, announced on Monday that it has launched a management system called Ding Xiang Yunguanjia, or DXY Cloud Steward in English, for small and medium-sized medical institutions.
Founded in July 2000, DXY or DXY.com is China’s largest online medical portal used by five million Chinese physicians and life science professionals, with an average of 1.8 million daily page views.
DXY developed this management system to be used as Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) with Tencent Cloud as its platform.
The system supports WeChat. Physicians can provide medical services through the system including consultation, remote diagnosis, electronic prescription and follow-up examination by communicating with patients through typing, voice, pictures and videos. Additionally, users can use WeChat Pay and Alipay to pay their bills through the system.
Medical institutions can also connect with third-party service providers, including pharmaceutical distributors, insurance companies, inspection agencies and medical equipment providers through this system.
The management system was originally used by clinics run by DXY, but now DXY has given access to other medical institutions with some service charges.
DXY’s CEO Zhang Jin said their self-developed SaaS-based management system, unlike difficult systems already in use in hospitals, is applicable for all medical institutions and easy to adopt.
