China's first smart hospital featuring artificial intelligence has opened in Guangzhou, reports ycwb.com.

Before patients arrive at the hospital, artificial intelligence (AI) can help patients with recommendations, make appointment and payments through the WeChat account of the Guangdong Second Provincial General Hospital.

A smart diagnosis system also helps doctors prescribe medications.

In addition to paying for bills online, patients can also establish their medical profile through facial recognition on WeChat.

AI reduces the time of patient inquiries by as much as 50%, and can diagnose around 90% of illnesses that are treated at community clinics, according to the hospital's deputy chief Li Guanming.

Li says they are drafting a guideline on AI application for all major hospitals in Guangdong Province.
