The Caoyang Community Health Service Center in Putuo District has put into use a self-service medicine distribution machine that offers convenience to patients.
The new medicine distribution machine, much like a beverage vending machine, stores a variety of medicines. The machine is open on working days, and from 8am to 11:30am on weekends.
Patients can get their medicines in a few seconds after scanning their health insurance cards, and confirming personal information and medicine requisitions.
The center has adopted a smart service system that includes a unified online application and an online payment information platform. After the application of the self-service medicine distribution system, the center has realized a queue-free diagnosis process.
