First “One-Minute Clinic” in China University

Ping An Good Doctor launches “one-minute clinic” at Shanghai Jiao Tong University, uses AI technology to guard health of teachers and students.

China’s one-stop healthcare ecosystem platform, Ping An Healthcare and Technology Company Limited (Ping An Good Doctor) has stationed a “one-minute clinic” at Shanghai Jiao Tong University, to safeguard the health of all teachers and students with its artificial intelligence (AI) technology.

This is following the launch of one-minute clinics across enterprises, large communities, chain pharmacies and expressway service areas in China.

As the first unmanned clinics currently in commercial operation in China, these one-minute clinics utilise Ping An Good Doctor’s AI technology, connecting more than 1,000 in-house medical personals and nearly 5,000 renowned external contracted doctors.

The technology called AI Doctor, acts like a real doctor and collects information on the users’ symptoms and illness history before providing a preliminary diagnostic suggestion. An experienced real doctor then joins the consultation remotely with supplementary recommendations to ensure the accuracy of the whole consultation process.

Every one-minute clinic has more than 100 categories of common drugs, all of which are cryogenically refrigerated to ensure their quality.

A student at Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Zhao, who used the one-minute Clinic, said it is very convenient that the clinic is located inside a school building, making it easy to purchase emergency medical supplies like medical tapes. He visited the one-minute clinic while suffering from a stomachache. After an in-depth inquiry about his symptoms, drug allergy history and other relevant information, the AI Doctor and online doctor provided relevant medical advice, and Zhao’s stomachache was quickly relieved after purchasing and taking medicines from the medicine cabinet next to the clinic.

A Ping An Good Doctor spokesperson said that in response to young students and campus employees’ needs, the one-minute clinic prescribes drugs that are relevant to the daily habits of people on the campus, such as eye drops, antidiarrheal drugs, Band-Aids and other common drugs for students, and menthol pills and pharyngitis tablets for teachers.

In the future, the one-minute clinics will be launched in more public areas, including shopping malls, airports, and train stations, which will complete the medical service circle in the city. [APBN]
