Creating a Robust Healthcare Delivery System: Understanding the Impact of Cost Effective Technology Integration
Total healthcare expenditure in Malaysia is expected to rise from RM52 billion in 2017 to RM80 billion by year 2020 due to ageing population, non-communicable and infectious diseases, and increasing patient demands.
Ageing population is projected to increase to 3.3 million by 2020 (Malaysian Journal of Medical Sciences and the country also has the 4th highest diabetics’ in Asia (3.6 million) and ranked as having the highest obesity rate in Asia (45.3% of population) according to Lancet.
Seeking to address these challenges, the new Malaysia government is undertaking the restructuring the healthcare delivery system. The health ministry recently announced to increase its healthcare budget to build more public hospitals; upgrade the existing facilities; introduce new appointment system and review the entire healthcare delivery process in order to increase patient experiences and healthcare quality.
Earlier, RM26 billion has been allocated for a pilot project “EnPHC” that aimed to store electronic medical records for 20 public health clinics for AI analysis on NCDs. The Malaysian Health Data Warehouse (MyHDW) was launched last year with the objective of using Big Data for analysis and decision-making that potentially reduces and optimises healthcare resources.
The strong competition in the healthcare market in the country drives private hospitals to upgrade their current facilities to industry 4.0 and enhance patient experience to maintain their market shares in medical tourism. Stakeholders are increasingly embracing mHealth to enhance care coordination, maximize outreach, boost patient engagement and improve outcomes while minimizing costs.
