Xicheng District’s Family Doctor Teams Make Efforts to Better Protect People’s Health
Xicheng District has 15 community health service centers and 271 family doctor service teams now, according to Xicheng District Health Commission. They provide residents with contracted services, including diagnosis, treatment and referral of common and frequently-occurring diseases, preventive health care, rehabilitation treatment, and management of chronic diseases. Up to now, the number of people in key groups who have signed service contracts with family doctors, such as elderly people, people with hypertension or diabetes, has reached 292700, with a signing rate of 97.20%.
Xicheng District has established chronic disease expert teams led by well-known experts in six major diseases including hypertension, diabetes, coronary heart disease, stroke, osteoarthropathy, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and built 154 family doctor studios named after excellent general practitioners. In addition, the district encourages doctors having expertise in child health care, woman health care, and psychiatric prevention and treatment to set up teams.
For people with disabilities, the elderly, and chronic patients, family doctor teams conduct health assessment every year, publicize health knowledge every month, and provide health consultation service timely.
Xicheng District Health Commission also builds a smart system of family doctors. It launches the "Health Xicheng" app, providing online health services, such as appointment registration, family doctor contracting service, notification of medical examination results, health file query, and health education.
Moreover, the family doctor team arranges its team members to pay return visit to patients by call, conduct health management for newly contracted groups, high-risk groups and healthy groups, regularly follow up chronically ill people who don’t see a doctor in time, and carry out a survey on residents’ recognition and satisfaction of the contracted services.
Xicheng District Health Commission will further improve public health service, focus on its quality and effects, and promote the "Internet + medical care" service through information and intelligent management.
