Elsevier, a global information analytics business specialising in science and health, and Tencent have signed a strategic agreement to accelerate the dissemination of global health information in China.
The two organisations will leverage their respective expertise and resources to help Chinese physicians gain quick access to the world's leading and authoritative medical information and academic resources through digital platforms and services.
In encouraging the exchange of cutting-edge global health and medical information, the strategic collaboration aims to increase the body of clinical knowledge and global healthcare perspectives available to China’s health professionals, thereby furthering their research and innovation efforts as well as boosting their career opportunities.
The quality of China's medical technology and healthcare has improved significantly from the continued development and investment over the past five years; the country still faces the challenges of an insufficient and unequal distribution of medical resources across its geography.
Building technology-related knowledge amongst professionals and increasing high-quality content in the healthcare sector are key to addressing the current lack in medical resources in some of China’s rural areas. At the same time, with the immense growth in medical and life sciences information, hospitals and doctors must acquaint themselves with the latest technology to access quality clinical research, comply with current medical standards and engage in global collaboration.
The collaboration between Elsevier and Tencent will facilitate the flow of medical information exchange and deliver world-leading authoritative and evidence-based health information and clinical content to China’s physicians, enhancing their clinical decision-making and care efficiency.
In recent years, Tencent has continuously increased its investment in life sciences and has cooperated with many top international scientific journals.
