MILAN, Oct 8 (Class Editori) -- The training of Chinese doctors is made in Italy. In the coming months, Intermeeting will launch remote updating projects for 400,000 doctors. The company is the only Italian operator in the sector in the whole China. In China, it collaborates with Lee's Pharm, a public biopharmaceutical company, considered in 2010 the second best Small cap in the country, according to Finance Asia. The results obtained in the last five years of collaboration will be presented at the next Great Wall International Congress of Cardiology 2019, scheduled in Beijing from October 10 to 13.
"When a Chinese doctor turns to online platforms such as Intermeeting, he does it because he is always looking for updated and quality training. In this context we were able to export skills and knowledge, with an innovative format that has been able to establish itself in the Asian market, so much so that today we are in China the only Italian operator working in the field of medical education," explained Gabriel Croppo, country sales manager of the company with offices in Padua and Bari.
For the company founded in 1999, the foreign market is one of the drivers of growth. In recent years the company has carried out training projects in Latin America, Africa and the United Arab Emirates, with a district in Dubai attended by over 65,000 people. While in Italy distance education has involved 45,000 people.
These figures give an idea of the importance of the Chinese market. The training sector generated a turnover of 1.3 million euros. The company aims for a 30 percent annual growth in the years to come, thanks to a strong commitment to the development of digital projects and apps. "The challenge for the coming years is to train over 400,000 Chinese doctors by strengthening the partnership with Lee's Pharm," added Croppo.
From the construction of hospitals to the training of personnel, from assistance to the elderly to the organization of a primary care network and to telemedicine, there are numerous potentials for Italian investments, as noted in 2015 by a Gop analysts. The driving forces behind the expansion of the market are the increasing awareness of health care and the needs fueled by economic growth, a large aging population, and an increase in per capita health spending capacity.
