Henan Provincial People's Hospital uses the integrated image cloud service platform built on China Unicom Henan's end-to-end, one-stop cloud+network solution, paving the way for telemedicine and remote diagnosis. In the future, the hospital will introduce more innovative ICT technologies such as cloud computing and artificial intelligence (AI) to accelerate its smart hospital transformation.

Henan Provincial People's Hospital is a 115-year-old grade-A tertiary hospital that provides medical treatment for people in Henan, a highly-populated province in China. The hospital is committed to building a smart healthcare service system that connects multiple branches in different areas.
As early as 1997, Henan Provincial People's Hospital started exploring the construction of its IT systems. In 2010, the hospital integrated its outpatient and inpatient systems and launched an electronic medical record (EMR) system, forming management and clinical IT systems. Then, in 2016, the hospital started its smart hospital transformation by building an information integration platform centered on EMRs. After such continuous improvements to its medical information systems, medical data generated in the hospital is growing rapidly. In particular, image data accounts for over 80% of the total medical data. To optimize the data resource configuration, the hospital urgently needed a comprehensive, integrated image platform for cloud storage and disaster recovery of medical images.
