China has launched an automated medical examination system that is expected to improve its record keeping and eliminate false reports.
A total of 10,000 people have already applied for the system to begin operating in the first quarter of 2018.
The system will allow Chinese citizens to take blood tests and other tests without the need for a doctor’s visit.
Under the new system, it will be possible to obtain an autopsy certificate without the use of a doctor, and Chinese hospitals can obtain samples from the deceased and send them back to the Chinese mainland.
This would allow Chinese hospitals to track the deceased for possible organ transplantation or medical tests.
China has long been a leader in medical research and medical technology, but in recent years, some areas have been hit by the country’s slowing economy and a rising number of cases of liver disease and cancers.
