Chinese Company Lanchuang Embracing Smart Technology For The Growing Elderly Care Market
Provided with a setup box, a webcam paired with a TV set and “Xiaoyi”, a Siri-like voice assistant, customers gain access to telemedicine and an SOS system as well as for-pay services that include housekeeping and meal deliveries.
Lanchuang Network Technology Corp in China offers these services just for one yuan a day. For an additional 2 yuan a day, a robot will call up the medical center. As many as 220,000 older patients across 16 cities have signed up for this program. They aim to make a profit by taking a commission from offline services providers instead of from the users. With a quarter of a billion senior citizens, China needs this more than ever.
Retirement and nursing homes, and general healthcare are pretty expensive, making living at homes the best option for most. While the capital wants to create a policy framework for aged care, local governments are not very supportive. But change is on the way. Around 22 million yuan has been given in subsidies to Lanchuang’s smart platform. Entrepreneurs are also gaining more support from users regarding the use of smart devices. Besides China, other countries like Britain, the US, and South Korea are also working to make healthcare more accessible.
