Healthcare Systems Begin to Incorporate Live Streaming Capabilities


FinancialBuzz.com News Commentary

NEW YORK, April 20, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- The global video streaming market size is anticipated to exhibit remarkable growth, owing to the advent and increasing popularity of digital video streaming worldwide. Video streaming, in simple terms, means the running of continuous media in a compressed audio and video form without waiting to download the content from the internet. Overall, the video streaming market value was USD 342.44 Billion in 2019 and is expected to rise at a 12.0% CAGR between 2020 to 2027. According to data provided by Fortune Business Insights, it is set to reach USD 842.93 Billion by 2027. Additionally, the market in the Asia Pacific region is likely to grow rapidly and exhibit a high CAGR in the forecast period on account of the presence of a tech-savvy population and the advent of smartphones with HD quality resolution, which is apt for video streaming. Scienjoy Holding Corporation (NASDAQ: SJ), Cerner Corporation (NASDAQ: CERN), United Health Group Inc. (NYSE: UNH), Activision Blizzard, Inc. (NASDAQ: ATVI), Verizon Communications, Inc. (NYSE: VZ)

The healthcare industry has gone through a significant transformation last year, prioritizing new technologies to provide services remotely and in a timely manner. For example, late last year, BlueJeans by Verizon announced that customers including the University of Louisville, Amicus Therapeutics, Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust and Central London Community Healthcare NHS Trust, are deploying BlueJeans to drive the healthcare transformation. Using BlueJeans video conferencing for telehealth services, patient-to-family communication, internal collaboration, education and patient advisory boards, hospitals, healthcare and life sciences organizations are able to help improve patient outcomes through providing care remotely in a manner that helps support adherence to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) or similar patient privacy requirements.

Scienjoy Holding Corporation (NASDAQ: SJ) announced yesterday breaking news that, "it has entered into a strategic partnership with Jiada Hexin (Beijing) Science and Technology Ltd. ("Jiada Hexin"), an online-to-offline (O2O) aesthetic medicine platform. The two companies will launch a live streaming aesthetic medicine platform that uses Scienjoy's proprietary technologies to bring together customers, live streaming broadcasters and aesthetic medicine institutions.

In China trusted live streaming influencers are helping consumers navigate the new and complex world of aesthetic medicine. At the same time, institutions are increasingly moving online to places like Jiada Hexin's O2O platform to connect efficiently with consumers, while consumers seek out these platforms to keep up to date with new aesthetic treatments. Online and live stream influencers have become a key part of aesthetic medicine marketing, offering personal experience sharing that has demystified the process, increased transparency and ultimately helped consumers make more informed decisions. According to the 2021 "China Aesthetic Medicine Market Outlook Report" jointly released by Deloitte and Meituan, China's aesthetic medicine market already reached RMB197.5 billion in 2020 and by 2023 is expected to exceed RMB300 billion. Backed by growing consumer acceptance and low market penetration, the sector presents outsized opportunities for growth.

Scienjoy and Jiada Hexin's joint aesthetic medicine platform will combine Jiada Hexin's existing network of over 200 certified institutions with Scienjoy's pool of over 300,000 seasoned live streaming broadcasters. The majority of Scienjoy's broadcasters fit the core aesthetic medicine demographic: women in their 20s and 30s with disposable income who are interested in maintaining a healthy and young appearance. This new platform will allow existing live streaming broadcasters to engage with viewers and attract new beauty broadcasters. In 2019, Scienjoy began incubating medical aesthetics-related initiatives to test popularity with broadcasters and existing users. The current iteration, the LikeMei Mini Program launched in November last year, has been integrated and tested on Scienjoy's platforms and shown strong positive user feedback.

On the technical and feature side, the new aesthetic medicine platform will use Scienjoy's proprietary artificial intelligence (AI) image analysis technology to help interested customers explore treatment options. AI has become a core component of Scienjoy's business, with proprietary AI technology a key pillar of its live streaming platforms and an area of continued research and development. When users upload photos or videos to the platform, Scienjoy's AI image analysis will accurately identify areas for attention, suggest different treatment options to the user and provide before and after image comparisons. The AI-generated "after" image will let early-stage potential customers explore and learn about their options before they are ready to contact a treatment provider. Combined with live streaming broadcaster personal experience sharing, and the ability of user to talk with aesthetic medicine professionals directly on the platform, AI technology helps to provide a well-rounded experience for users to explore and learn. These AI and broadcaster tools will help users to learn about the options and outcomes even before they connect with one of the over 200 aesthetic medicine institutions in Jiada Hexin's network.



'We believe that with a combination of Scienjoy's proprietary technologies, talented broadcasters and Jiada Hexin's O2O aesthetic medicine experience, our strategic cooperation will create value for both sides,' commented Victor He, chairman and CEO of Scienjoy. 'This partnership demonstrates how Scienjoy continues to look for new applications for our proprietary technology to generate growth and expand our industry reach.'"
