The “Private Doctor” service appoints dedicated doctors to conduct one-on-one consultations. The system is available around the clock and enables real-time medical consultations and offline appointments for outpatient services at hospitals. Ping An Good Doctor also employs doctors from class III grade A hospitals (top tier of Chinese hospital classification) with more than 10 years of experience for this service. This add-on not only expands its array of digital healthcare offerings, but also places emphasis on the human element of primary care. Clients should note that adding human medical expertise and availability in a more personalized and customizable format can complement and augment existing digital healthcare capabilities.
