The project is jointly implemented by JNU and 20 medical, health or information technology research institutes, including Xiyuan Hospital CACMS, Guangdong Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Shanghai Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine and the First Affiliated Hospital of Zhejiang Chinese Medical University. The program gives full play to the characteristics of TCM's simplicity, convenience, effectiveness and inexpensiveness; follows the rule of development in the health fields; and insists on giving priority to prevention, combining it with treatment and paying equal attention to traditional Chinese and Western medicine. This principle promotes two goals: the transformation of health services for the elderly from extensive development of scale expansion to green intensive development with improved quality and benefits; and the establishment of a brand-new concept and program of health management for the elderly.
