Government’s role for health kiosk
Health kiosks will be most beneficial only after they are being networked, which means it will bring obvious advantages for all people when the health kiosk can be accessed everywhere, the only role who can achieve this is the government, which has the authority to build such a system.

At each village in the countryside, the local hospitals and clinics are required to allocate with the needed medical kiosk or mobile clinic health check station which can take basic health screenings, including but not limited to vital signs, blood test, urine, body organs, psychological assessment, etc.
The telemedicine platform is required to setup an archive for each residence, including his identity information, previous disease history, family inherited disease history, plus his continuing health check result data, each residence should be provided long term health assistance, such as diet advice, sports activity advice, mental health guidance, each residence is encouraged to assign a home doctor so he could have an in-time medical service in urgent situation.
As the management center, the government need to have an overview over local public health condition, including total population amount, the total population of different diseases, different age groups or gender groups of different disease, and different patient distribution in each district(or area), the total population of different stages of a specific diseased, by this health information, the government is able to setup or adjust its health policies more accurately.
