Healthcare has traditionally had a high entry-level barrier, but the internet is eroding this. Because of the continuous expansion of health demand, health IT is growing at an unprecedented rate. On the one hand, the aging population is increasing. On the other hand, the distribution of medical resources is very imbalanced in China, as it is mainly concentrated in the eastern developed regions. In areas that are lacking in medical resources, people have to spend a lot of time, energy and money to travel long distances to bigger cities if they get a serious disease. Many times, those in remote and poverty-stricken areas may even decline to seek further treatment because of the distance and expenses.
The combination of the internet and the health industry can provide a solution to this problem. Seeing this, eimageglobal Inc. launched the medical cloud service platform. The platform connects different institutions and regions and uses classification diagnosis. It provides patients with online and offline reservation and referral services from experts in more resourceful health institutions. It supplies physicians with cloud diagnostic tools for inter-regional health and consultation services. eimageglobal allows people in remote areas to easily see a physician.
At the same time as the development of large data storage, computing, and mobile internet, health data became digital as well as massive. eimageglobal is able to collect the structured, semi-structured, and unstructured health data; process the analysis of data association, machine learning, and more; and store the data. As data has become larger, health data centers’ backup storage has become increasingly important. With the fiber storage switch and optical transmission solution, eimageglobal cloud storage enables reliable backup storage and disaster recovery for health data.
