Promoting hierarchical diagnosis and treatment is an important measure to deepen the medical reform. What progress has been made in promoting hierarchical diagnosis and treatment in the field of traditional Chinese medicine? Zhao Wenhua made an introduction from four aspects.
First, a TCM service system that covers urban and rural areas and integrates preventive health care, disease treatment and rehabilitation will be initially established. The level and efficiency of traditional Chinese medicine services have been continuously enhanced. By the end of 2020, the number of beds in TCM hospitals per 1,000 permanent residents has reached 0.81, and the total number of TCM clinics nationwide has reached 1.058 billion.
The second is to focus on building a highland for traditional Chinese medicine services. 6 traditional Chinese medicine hospitals are included in the scope of creation of “counseling” national medical centers, and 20 traditional Chinese medicine hospitals are included in the scope of output hospitals of national regional medical centers. Eight TCM projects were identified as national regional medical center construction projects.
The third is to focus on improving the ability of grass-roots Chinese medicine services. As of the end of 2020, there are 36,300 TCM centers across the country, 99% of community health service centers, 98% of township health centers, 90.6% of community health service stations and 74.5% of village clinics are capable of serving TCM. .
Fourth is to focus on the advantages of traditional Chinese medicine. Encourage traditional Chinese medicine hospitals to lead the formation of medical alliances. In 2021, there will be 827 pilot counties (cities, districts) of national close-knit county medical alliances in 30 provinces (autonomous regions and municipalities), of which 68% of the pilot counties (cities, districts) are in Hospitals participated in the medical community, and about 34% of the pilot TCM hospitals participated in the medical community as the lead hospital.
Zhao Wenhua also mentioned that the total amount of high-quality Chinese medicine medical resources is still insufficient, the development between regions and urban and rural areas is unbalanced, and the grass-roots Chinese medicine service capacity is weak. In this regard, in the next step, the State Administration of Traditional Chinese Medicine will focus on three aspects, and vigorously promote the implementation of the hierarchical diagnosis and treatment system.
The first is to speed up the construction of the National Traditional Chinese Medicine Center, the Regional Diagnosis and Treatment Center and the Traditional Chinese Medicine Inheritance and Innovation Center.
The second is to implement the “14th Five-Year” action plan of the grass-roots Chinese medicine service capacity improvement project, strengthen the construction of county-level traditional Chinese medicine hospitals and grass-roots medical and health institutions, and improve the comprehensive service capacity of grass-roots traditional Chinese medicine. Traditional Chinese medicine medical institutions are fully covered, and community health service centers and township health centers are all set up with traditional Chinese medicine halls.
The third is to innovate the service model of traditional Chinese medicine, build an Internet hospital of traditional Chinese medicine, develop telemedicine and Internet diagnosis and treatment, build an online and offline integrated traditional Chinese medicine medical service model covering pre-diagnosis, diagnosis and post-diagnosis, and promote high-quality medical services. Medical resources are sinking.
