SHANGHAI, April 13, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — On April, 2022, 111, Inc. (“111” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: YI), a leading tech-enabled healthcare platform company in China,  has set up an “Anti-Epidemic Command” at the first opportunity to coordinate its relevant departments and manpower to fully participate in the fight against the pandemic in Shanghai. As a provider of anti-epidemic items and drugs in Shanghai, 111 has so far opened various supporting services, including antigen test product supplies, an exclusive speedy procurement channel, chronic disease medication registration, free online consultation, and prescription renewal for chronic diseases. The company has already run direct transport vehicles between its Kunshan-based East China Operation Center and Shanghai, providing fast and secure delivery of much-needed items and drugs in the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic in Shanghai.

On April 7, the first batch of anti-epidemic items and drugs were shipped to Shanghai from 111’s East China Operation Center in Kunshan, providing a timely boost for the ongoing fight against the pandemic. The orders were collected and gathered through an exclusive purchase channel of 111, and special personnel were assigned to get them through the company’s “Anti-Epidemic Command”, thus accelerating the order handling process and ensuring the fastest delivery to the first line.  

1 Pharmacy, 111’s online drugstore, sells more than one hundred thousand drugs online, covering more than 100 diseases. As medical institutions and offline pharmacies struggle with supplies, 111’s digital healthcare platform can effectively make up for the gap.

Targeting the problem of inconvenient drug purchases facing some patients in Shanghai, 111 now provides patients in need with “chronic disease medication registration” and other services through doctors and pharmacists, and readily assigns special personnel to follow up with any urgent request for drugs. Every effort is being made to ease the “drug supply shortage” arising from the current lockdown in Shanghai.

Since 1 Clinic, 111’s online hospital, launched free clinic services online, general practitioners and medical experts in pediatrics, obstetrics and gynecology, internal medicine, surgery, dermatology, oncology and other specialties have provided online consultations, prescription renewal for chronic diseases, and other services for the public. Electronic prescriptions have recently increased by 20%, and convenient and professional medical services are now made available to many people in need.

Dr. YU Gang, Co-founder & Executive Chairman of 111, stated, “Shanghai is currently facing tremendous challenges due to the Covid-19 pandemic. As a Shanghai-based digital healthcare company, we shoulder responsibilities to help the city overcome various difficulties by fully leveraging our strengths in integrated online/offline platform and smart supply chain. We will devote every effort to support Shanghai to win this battle.”
