- Feb 13, 2020-

  Smart city refers to the use of information and communication technology to sense, analyze and run the key information of the core system of the whole city, so as to make intelligent response to various needs including people's livelihood, environmental protection, public security, urban services, industrial and commercial activities. It is not only based on a certain technology, but also a comprehensive application solution including cloud, artificial intelligence and other technologies, aiming to help the city run better and create a better life for people.


  As an important component of the smart city, smart medicine integrates mobile communication, Internet, Internet of things, cloud computing, big data, artificial intelligence, 5G and other technologies to realize the transformation from traditional healthcare to smart healthcare.

Smart medicine needs to solve the problems of resource integration, data sharing, public opinion guidance, closed-loop operation, etc. and promotes the healthy development of smart medicine under the guidance of the government.


  Now the global society is entering the great health science and technology revolution, and there will be a large market for smart medicine in the future. According to the comparison of the distribution of medical resources between China and the United States, 95% of medical resources in China are in hospital services, while that in the United States is only 19%. In the future, China will mobilize more medical resources in disease prevention, disease rehabilitation, pension, family health care, medical devices and health risk management, with a promising market prospect.


  In the future, six major technologies: artificial intelligence, robotics, blockchain, data security and reliability, 3D printing technology and medical big data will help traditional medicine switch to intelligent medicine.
Take public epidemic prevention, such as new coronavirus pneumonia for example, through the fever clinic data automatic connection and alarm, analysis of the main source of the patient, so as to identify the source of disease, early take source control measures. It took a very long time to find the source of SARS in 2003. If we had had the help of smart medicine, we should have known the transmission route and the source of SARS should have be quickly found when it was introduced from Hong Kong.
