In this manuscript, we firstly reviewed the challenges faced by China in its health care reform. Though Chinese governments have made tremendous efforts, problems like the difficulties and high expense in medical care and the nervous doctor-patient relationship have been reported a lot, whose key problem is the insufficiency of high-quality medical resource and the supply-demand imbalance. Presently, it's almost old news: artificial intelligence will overturn the existing medical model. Artificial intelligence technology will transform the medical sector and trigger an estimated $147 billion market during the next 20 years. We hereby pointed out the strengths of medical artificial intelligence and its potentials to relieve China's insufficient and unequally-distributed medical resources. Also, we analyzed China's advantages in developing medical AI due to its huge medical big data and China government's powerful promotion policy. Finally, we put forward some challenges for China to practice this.
