Ahead of the weekend, MMW learned that the Personal Connected Health Alliance has launched its China Work Group to help cultivate the ecosystem of personal connected health technologies in the Chinese market.
We’re told that Professor Daidi Zhong of Chongqing University will serve as Chair of the Work Group, and Lisson Zhang of Philips will serve as Vice Chair.
According to an email sent to MMW, the PCHAlliance Council voted to approve the China Work Group on October 4th.
The new China Work Group, part of PCHAlliance’s Emerging Markets Work Group, will provide unique business development, policy and technical forums to promote personal connected health devices and solutions in the market.
“There is growing interest in personal health technologies throughout Asia, and the Chinese market represents an important opportunity to expand the use of interoperable personal connected health tools to improve health management, clinical outcomes and quality of life for Chinese citizens,” said Horst Merkle, President and Chairman of Continua.
