The China Center for mHealth Innovation (CCmHI) was launched in November 2014, hosted by The George Institute, China and with support from Qualcomm® Wireless Reach™. CCmHI aims to improve community healthcare in China through the study of affordable, sustainable mHealth interventions, which target the nation’s leading causes of death and disability.
Upon launching, CCmHI focused on a landscape analysis of digital health policies, laws, standards, programs and research activities in China.
Mobile technology has huge potential in healthcare delivery and patient management. The Chinese government’s 12th Five Year Plan prioritizes the development of affordable, accessible healthcare for China’s entire population.
Combined with consumer applications that provide tools for self-care, CCmHI will assist with the integration of mHealth strategies into national and provincial policies and guidelines.
