Ping An Good Doctor launches a one-minute clinic in Shanghai

Ping An Healthcare and Technology has launched a one-minute clinic at Shanghai Jiao Tong University, to provide consultations and health management services.

The platform uses AI technology and connects with more than 1,000 medical professionals and almost 5,000 externally contracted doctors.

The technology AI Doctor by Ping An Good Doctor’s was developed by over 200 world-class AI experts and has accumulated more than 400 million pieces of consultation records. When patients use the consultation service in One-minute Clinics, AI Doctor acts like a real doctor and collects information on the users’ symptoms and illness history before providing a preliminary diagnostic suggestion. The experienced real doctor then joins the consultation with supplementary recommendations to ensure the accuracy of the whole consultation process.

Upon the launch, Zhao, a student at Shanghai Jiao Tong University 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.

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. The One-minute Clinic helps to improve the health of students and teachers, preventing diseases, which improves their work efficiency and urges students to develop a healthy lifestyle.

The company plans to launch the unmanned pod in more public areas, including shopping malls, airports, and train stations, which will complete the medical service circle in the city.
