Chinanews.com, Jan. 17th. In order to achieve the "running at most once" faster, governments in various places are applying new technologies faster and faster. Recently, Ye Shibao, director of the Electronic Bills Center of the Zhejiang Provincial Department of Finance, said in an interview that since the establishment of the provincial blockchain electronic bill platform in conjunction with the Ant blockchain in June last year, as of the end of 2019, 507 medical institutions in Zhejiang Province have been listed 74 public hospitals realized reimbursement of electronic bills in different places in the province, issued 100 million fewer bills, saved over 30 million yuan in bill printing costs, and once again led the innovation.

Electronic bills have been implemented for many years, and there are still many links that cannot be reached, but the blockchain has become a key. It is understood that Ant Financial is the first company to explore the application of blockchain technology to digital government industries such as finance and taxation. Through the ant blockchain technology, electronic bills can be stamped during the entire process from generation, transmission, storage to use. The entire process can be traced and cannot be tampered with, ensuring that each circulation link can quickly confirm the authenticity of the bill, thereby achieving cross-regional implementation. 2. Inter-department settlement and reimbursement.

Ye Shibao said that according to previous statistics, before going to the medical insurance department for reimbursement, the entire process took about 12 working days, and commercial insurance reimbursement took longer, requiring 7-60 working days. Now you do n’t need to hold a few stamps on the ticket anymore, you can quickly get it by tapping your mobile phone.

Shao Yifu Hospital of Zhejiang University is one of the first on-chain hospitals in the province. It is also a great thing for Zhao Yue, a bill administrator who has worked in the finance department for 30 years. In the past, he manually checked and piled up the half-meter-high bill stubs every day. On average, he packed a large box in 8 days. He couldn't store it in the office. Then he asked his colleague to move it to the warehouse to save it. The entire process takes several months. Today, there are fewer and fewer receipts received every day, from the original height of half a meter to one or twenty.

"The warehouse is no longer needed, and several of the vehicles that transported the bills for destruction were returned."

The full link of electronic bills and reimbursement claims in hospitals was finally opened, which ultimately improved the "last mile" experience for patients. It is understood that Taizhou Hospital dared to be the first to allow local residents, Mr. Pang, to receive medical reimbursement for 7 hours at a time when they traveled to Hangzhou to see a doctor, becoming the first person in the country to achieve reimbursement of medical insurance through remote electronic bills.

The changes in every hospital are just the tip of the iceberg. On-chain settlement of subway tickets allows users to pass one yard, Hangzhou Internet Court introduced ant blockchain, and provident fund withdrawal. Zhejiang Province has completed landing in more than 26 fields. From mobile payment to the digital economy, Zhejiang has always taken the lead in the application of innovative technologies.

At the 2020 Zhejiang Two Conferences held here, Jing Xiandong, member of the Zhejiang Political Consultative Conference and chairman of Ant Financial, said that he would continue to use Zhejiang's AI and blockchain to promote the upgrading of Zhejiang's digital government and promote Zhejiang to become a national digital government model province. In the future, only applications that benefit the real economy and the general public will be truly valuable applications, and the blockchain must be fundamentally devoid of reality.
