China is a country with a vast territory and an unbalanced economic development. There is a large gap between basic education and medical care. Better healthcare coverage is hard to come by in less developed regions. However, in recent years, with the development of science and technology, the use of advanced communication technology, such as telemedicine based on video conferencing systems, has radiated medical assistance from central hospitals to remote areas, and promoted medical and health reforms.
