ACCESS Health China won the 2017 Special Contribution Award by Shanghai Services Federation in February 2018. This award is given to members of the Federation for their contributions to the development of the service industry in Shanghai.
In 2017, ACCESS Health China launched a research unit, the Health Futures Innovation Platform, and the Innovator Alliance to deepen our relationship with partners and to enhance our understanding of the healthcare sector. We organized and supported forty seven events in the past year in collaboration with more than one hundred partners. Our platform brought together more than two hundred industry mentors and more than nine hundred innovators to foster innovations in our focus areas of aging, digital health, and healthcare finance. We also promoted cross border communication and exchanges to share experiences and to explore expansion opportunities.
ACCESS Health China was an inaugural member of the Professional Committee on Health Services of Shanghai Services Federation. Our Health Futures Innovation Platform was committed to the transformation from a hospital centered service model to a person centered care model. We would like to appreciate the great support of the Federation on our work within the platform, especially our joint efforts to hold the 2017 China International Healthcare and Finance Innovation Summit.
