Taking Telehealth Forward
“We’re also focusing on telehealth because it is a fast-growing and underserved market. We can reduce firms’ costs in collecting and separating blood samples, and help them to expand to more markets, like chronic disease monitoring.

HiSEPOR founder Dr Gao Jie explains how its blood sampling kit could improve health screening and monitoring for the masses.
