As China moves forward with significant reforms to its healthcare policies, the Centre plays an important role in strengthening the connections between enterprises, investment, academic research and government policy makers. The CHIP Awards are intended to help enable the development of innovative practices and policies in China’s healthcare sector. The 66 entries submitted for consideration went through a rigorous judging process. Besides setting an example in innovation, award winners had to achieve economic and social benefits, and their results had to be benchmarked and have potential for wider practical implementation.

“The CHIP award winners are an indicator of the direction of future healthcare reform,” said Mr. Zhong Nanshan of the Chinese Academy of Engineering. “They can also provide some guidance for government policy.”
