Beijing, China, May 26 (Xinhua) — According to a journalist Gong Xiaoqian, in order to adjust to social development and satisfy medical demands posed by foreigners in China and personnel who possess commercial medical insurances, the new outpatient building under the International Department of China-Japan Friendship Hospital is formally open to the public on May 26, and the “upgraded” International Department will satisfy more multidimensional medical demands.
It is said that the International Department of China-Japan Friendship Hospital was founded in 1984, which exerts a significantly medical security function in national and social development. However, due to the social and economic development, the continuous improvement of human beings’ life and the rapidly increasing demands for health, a large number of foreigners in China and social personnel possessing commercial medical insurances (international commercial medical insurances included) pose an obviously increasing medical demand and propose higher requirements for medical treatment convenience and levels.
According to Wang Chen, president of China-Japan Friendship Hospital, under the new situation, the original International Department which covered an area of only 800 square meters, had only 50 sickbeds and adopted outdated technological systems and management manners has failed to satisfy social demands any more.

Guo Yanhong, vice-president of the Medical Affairs and Management Bureau under the National Health and Family Planning Commission, says that more efforts are required and medical supplies are improved in order to satisfy multidimensional medical demands posed by patients.

In order to solve this situation, China-Japan Friendship Hospital has increased the number of sickbeds in the International Department to 100 since 2016 and simultaneously launched the construction of the new outpatient building. It is said that the “upgraded” outpatient building of the International Department covers an area of 8,400 square meters, and is a foreign-related medical outpatient building that possesses high-end medical facilities and enjoys modern outpatient features.
According to Wang Chen, the new outpatient building carries out a larger range of medical services. At the new outpatient building, there are 800 daily outpatients, 32 medical departments of international high-end levels and 34 specialist and typical disease outpatients, including breathing, heart, digestion, endocrine, rheumatism, obstetrics and gynecology, pediatrics, traditional Chinese medicine and rehabilitation. Medical expert groups, including academicians, masters of traditional Chinese medicine, multidisciplinary director members from Chinese Medical Association and Chang Jiang scholars, carry out medical consultations and at the same time, make multidisciplinary joint treatment and diagnoses. By virtue of the advantages of a national remote medical management and training center established in China-Japan Friendship Hospital and with the support from advanced information technology, the International Department should innovate the Internet medical mode and cooperate with domestic and international famous medical institutions to make severe and typical disease consultations at home and abroad. In addition, there are many approaches to detect treatment equipment, including day wards, infusion observation, independent magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and CT. At the same time, relatively independent parking facilities are also installed underground.

The International Department actively explores the innovation service mode, implements the membership, provides group health security, establishes a health management team and a domestic and overseas remote medical expert group and sets up a systematic one-stop business system for prevention, medical treatment and rehabilitation by adopting advanced minimally invasive, painless and accurate medical technologies. During this process, humanity is highlighted.

Guo Yanhong hopes that, the “upgraded” International Department can get in touch with the international medical circle as a good-quality medical window in China in order to make outstanding demonstrations for other domestic hospitals and to make new contributions to building “Health China” through innovations and wisdom.

“I believe that the totally new International Department of China-Japan Friendship Hospital will provide more improved medical care for domestic and overseas patients, which will become an international medical center to satisfy national and social development demands and undertake important social duties and responsibilities”, Wang Chen Says.
