 – 28 December 2020 – Aurora Tele-Oncology Limited
(“Aurora Tele-Oncology”) recently announced a strategic partnership with Hainan
UMP Internet Hospital, a telemedicine center of UMP Healthcare Holdings
Limited (“UMP”, stock code 722:HK). Under this partnership, both parties will collaborate
to bring cross-border, virtual oncology telemedicine services to cancer patients in Mainland China, supported by a panel
of Hong Kong oncology experts. This
strategic collaboration will initially target the Hainan province as a pilot,
with plans to expand further to the rest of Mainland China. By leveraging
technology as an enabler, it is our shared vision to provide high quality and
accessible care at scale to patients worldwide.

 

Established in July 2020, Aurora
Tele-Oncology has developed a patient-centric oncology-specific technology platform
to provide virtual telemedicine services by connecting cancer patients and
doctors worldwide. The combination of its in-house panel of world-renowned
oncologists and a comprehensive technology platform allows quality cancer care
to be provided to patients around the world at their doorstep. The company aims
to optimize
the sustainable development of cancer care by becoming the first virtual
oncology clinic in Hong Kong and Mainland China, through efficient workflow and
smooth transition between the online service and offline healthcare centers.

Hainan
UMP Internet Hospital was granted a practicing license by the Health Commission
of Hainan Province in August 2020, whereby UMP has officially launched its
Internet hospital business. As the only Hong Kong origin healthcare platform
with an Internet hospital license, UMP provides patients with licensed
telemedicine services through its Hong Kong and overseas doctors to bring high
quality international medical resources to mainland residents. Leveraging UMP’s
solid experience in providing primary care services, Hainan UMP Internet
Hospital is committed to further narrowing the gaps in the provision of medical
resources with an aim to create greater value for a wider reach of patients.

 

In support of this strategic partnership, UMP has made a strategic
investment in Aurora Tele-Oncology to further strengthen the collaboration and support
future development of the oncology telemedicine
services platform.

Director and China
President of UMP, said “The strategic partnership
between UMP and Aurora Tele-Oncology makes the world-class oncology medical
services become near at hand for more patients to meet their diverse needs
in an effective manner. Benefited from national policies, Internet-based
healthcare services will be a key trend of social development. Telemedicine
will continue to evolve with the development of innovative technology, playing
a greater role in promoting healthcare development in Mainland China. UMP will
continue to grasp the opportunities in the Greater Bay Area and the rest of
Mainland China and bring high quality international medical resources to make further
contribution to the Mainland medical industry with the help of technology”

 

Dr. Chu Weng In, Sam, General
Manager of Aurora Tele-Oncology, said “It is an honor for Aurora to collaborate
with UMP. Throughout a patients’ treatment journey, we have witnessed their
despair and helplessness. Aurora is established with the central vision and
mission to provide cancer patients across Hong Kong and Mainland China with
world-class cancer care. We strive to become their beacon of hope. With the use
of second opinion telemedicine services, we can reach and help more of those in
need. This strategic partnership will allow our expert Hong Kong oncologist
panel to provide quality cross-border care at scale to patients in Mainland
China supported by our virtual offering.”
