The regional data centre in Guiyang is expected to open in Jun-18, providing the final link in a national health data network whose goal is to provide a personalised health profile for each citizen, ranging from clinical records to dietary guidelines.
Guizhou will be one of five data centres across the country, each overseeing five to seven neighbouring provinces for health data collection and integrated analysis.
