SHANGHAI, Dec. 11, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Zhongchao Inc. (NASDAQ: ZCMD) (“Zhongchao” or the “Company”), a platform-based internet technology company offering services for patients with cancer and other major diseases, today announced that Shanghai Zhongxin Medical Technology Co., Ltd. (“Zhongxin”), of which Zhongchao consolidates the operations and financial results through a series of contractual arrangements, has renewed its service agreement (the “Agreement”) with Beijing Public Health Foundation (“BPHF”), a non-profit organization dedicated to enhancing Chinese citizens’ health through public welfare initiatives and aid programs. Pursuant to the Agreement, Zhongxin and BPHF extended its partnership to work together on a patient aid project (the “Project”) to provide medication assistance services for cancer patients.
The Project offers free Doxorubicin Hydrochloride Liposome Injections to low-income patients with breast cancer, lymphoma, Kaposi’s sarcoma, ovarian cancer, osteosarcoma, and myeloma based on their needs. The Project aims to ensure patients to have longer lasting and more effective medical treatments with less financial burden. The Project operates through over 300 hospitals and 100 pharmacies, where qualified cancer patients after an assessment can receive their medications for free. To date, the Project has been in operation for three years, serving over 6,000 patients and donating more than 22,000 doses of medication.
Under the supervision and guidance of BPHF, Zhongxin, leveraging its self-developed patient assistance program technical service platform, is responsible for providing staff with training and daily operation management, maintaining the project website, management for patients, and monitoring and analyzing project progress. These efforts aim to standardize the workflow and enhance the operational efficiency of the Project. Additionally, the platform also performs information management for Project participants, such as hospitals and pharmacies, to improve operational efficiency and accuracy.
With the rising incidence of cancer and prolonged life expectancy brought by new technologies, the cost of innovative medications and long-term treatments has intensified financial burden on patients. Zhongchao believes that the Project encourages and supports patients in need to adhere to sustained treatments with significant therapeutic effects and less financial burden on families. Zhongchao remains committed to leveraging its service capabilities and experience in enhancing treatment efficiency and quality of life for cancer patients.
