    Healthcare in China: Challenges and Opportunities

    NWCC, OBI, and K&L Gates are delighted to welcome Jing Dipiero to the next event -- "Healthcare in China: Global Opportunities." Washington State China Relations Council sponsored her talk on the topic in Seattle, on Dec 6th, 2017. It was very well received.

    “Having been born and raised in Beijing before relocating her career to the US, Jing has acquired an uncommon depth of understanding and keen ability to navigate within the two systems. She expertly guided the audience through a history of healthcare in China.

    However, Ms. Dipiero’s analysis of healthcare in China compared to the US revealed that the system remains rife with challenges. As per capita income of the Chinese population rises, the Chinese government has been implementing universal health insurance that will cover 100% of 1.4 billion population with basic coverage. Such a lofty goal will present opportunities domestically and internationally for medical professionals, investors and technologists abound throughout the globe.

    As a company in the field of medicine, health and innovation, now is a good time to look into the possibilities made available by the increasing demand of Chinese consumers, the vast Chinese market, various funding options, and favorable government policies in support of entrepreneurship and international cooperation.

    Jing is the founder and CEO of DPR Consulting, LLC, an organization established by industry leaders in healthcare and global business. DPR Consulting introduces, educates and offers comprehensive solutions to Chinese patients, medical institutions, local and central government and American technology companies.

    This event is a collaboration between Northwest China Council, Oregon Bioscience Incubator, and K&L Gates.
