BEIJING, April 26, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — QTC Care has announced the close of around 7 million USD series-A financing. It is a health care company focusing on introducing the world’s top medical resources to the Chinese market and utilizes artificial intelligence to streamline treatment recovery and disease prevention.

This funding will be primarily used for the development of Digital Therapeutics (DTx) and building medical network to service insurance companies.
Lu Yi, CEO of QTC Care said: “Traditional health and disease management is usually half-baked due to the lack of effective incentive mechanism and human-based management. Our solution — Digital Therapeutics (DTx), and other health management services, uses a combination of artificial intelligence and social interaction, a huge step towards helping treatment recovery, chronic disease management, and disease prevention. We are grateful for our investor and partners in supporting our work.”
