SHANGHAI, China, Jan. 14, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 111, Inc. (NASDAQ:YI) ("111" or the "Company"), a leading integrated online and offline healthcare platform, today announced that it presented at the 37th Annual J.P. Morgan Healthcare Conference which took place on January 7-10, 2019, in San Francisco, CA, USA.
Mr. Junling Liu, Chairman and CEO of 111, presented on behalf of the Company during the conference where he outlined the extraordinary opportunities being created for healthcare delivery in the internet age as the government reforms the sector. Mr. Liu commented, "111's mission is to build the largest integrated online and offline healthcare platform in China powered by technology. There continues to be a crisis in China's health care system, with outpatient hospital visits taking over 3 hours on average with only one general practitioner for every 6,666 people. The healthcare sector is also fragmented and full of inefficiencies today given the uneven geographic distribution process for pharmacies reaching out to the tier 1 and tier 2 distributors not to mention pharmaceutical companies directly. In recent years, there has been a huge push from the central government to mobilize medical resources, improve drug distribution transparency and efficiency, and encourage innovations in developing quality new drugs."
"We have successfully built the technological infrastructure to modernize this experience for consumers through our integrated online and offline solutions. We are the enabler of a revolutionary healthcare ecosystem which includes pharmaceutical companies that source from 80 leading manufacturers and 243 distributors, insurance companies that use a new closed-loop internet "healthcare + pharma" pharmacy benefit management model, the world's largest virtual pharmacy network serving over 130,000 pharmacies, 90 full-time in-house medical professionals and 2,000 external doctors, as well as more than 15 million registered users on our platform. We believe we are ideally positioned in the healthcare market to benefit from this significant growth opportunity."
