THEKEY’s Dr. Yidong King introduced the rationale and technologies involved in the Research. According to Dr. King, the Research can only be achieved through the integration of technical, legal and policy solutions, in which the data is fundamental, data security is crucial, and cooperation of all parties is the only method.

THEKEY’s Medical Insurance-Medical Treatment-Medicine Platform will be utilized as the fundamental layer for data collection, cleansing and processing. The database will comprehensively vary from medical insurance, medical treatment and medicine purchase to ensure the reliability and feasibility of the solution. The Data Capacity Open Platform will be embedded to technically ensure the data security that “the data never leaves the custody of the government, never be downloaded, and never be seen by unauthorized people”. THEKEY’s proprietary IDV (Identity Verification) engine will also be adopted to identify the system users and guarantee their legal access to the system on real-time. IDV technology is also critical to largely enhance the solution’s efficiency and lower the cost.

The Virtual Medical Insurance Card is a typical application based on the Medical Insurance -Medical Treatment-Medicine Platform. It mobilizes the medical insurance and maternity insurance by providing mobile service of registration, medicine purchasing and payment, thus remarkably enhancing the medical treatment efficiency and user experience. Moreover, the government administration efficiency is also enhanced by its function of synchronous display in mobile, PC, TV Screen and central console.
