Changing Trends in Chinese Healthcare Delivery

3rd China International Medical Service Industry Development Summit, Shanghai

China’s continued economic growth, the development of a consumer culture, and its commitment to healthcare reform, particularly privatization, puts it in a unique position to develop innovative and unique solutions for its maturing healthcare market. These are the issues David Hanitchak, a healthcare strategist in the Boston office of NBBJ, will address in a presentation before the 3rd China International Medical Service Industry Development Summit in Shanghai.

He will consider examples including a proposed China hospital combining elements of both high-end and specialty care with ambitious patient-centered, personalized care goals; trends in alternate delivery models from US healthcare to provide “care anywhere” that are challenging the dominance of hospital systems; and examples of a developing understanding of the impact of the environment on health, shifting the discussion from healthcare to wellness and the possibilities of healthy, sustainable bio-districts.
