The “Sixth National Health Service Statistical Survey Special Report” shows that the number of people with chronic diseases in China has exceeded 400 million, the incidence rate of people over 15 years old exceeds 34%, and the incidence rate of people over 65 years old exceeds 60%.

Not only do patients often forget to take doses, skip doses, and re-use medications, but the lack of knowledge about the disease and nursing care also leads to poor disease control, and there is also the inability to follow up with doctors and refill prescriptions conveniently and on time. In response to these medication pain points, Tencent Health built the WeChat “scan” medicine box into a health medicine box, relying on Tencent Medical Dictionary’s objective and in-depth disease science popularization, as well as management tools such as medication management and health records, while integrating the latest large medical models, district Digital technologies such as blockchain traceability provide patients with a one-stop medication information and medication service platform.
