9th Healthcare Innovation Summit Asia

Empowering Patients and Caregivers through Optimal and Cost Effective Technology Integration

"We are studying the scope and opportunities for IT and other digital tools to enable the delivery of better and seamless care across the care continuum, as well as targeted interventions for improved healthcare outcomes for our citizens."

- S. Iswaran, Minister for Trade and Industry (Industry), Singapore

According to the Department of Statistics Singapore, the number of citizens above 65 years old is expected to triple to 900,000 by 2030 with the median age rising to 47, bringing significant challenges to all the stakeholders in delivering healthcare. It is acknowledged that the most effective way to address these challenges is to improve research and integration of ICT and medical technologies.

Healthcare masterplans from Singapore and other regional governments have highlighted the criticality of integrating cost effective innovations to improve the efficiency and affordability of care delivery, in optimizing resources and in enhancing patient experience.

The declared goal through the Healthcare 2020 policy is to accelerate this transformation through ICT-enabled delivery systems, achieve integrated and quality care, improve cost-efficiency, enable the public to manage their health, and to enhance clinical and health services research.

Questex Asia’s Healthcare Innovation Summit Asia will bring together 250+ senior stakeholders from regulators, policy makers, healthcare institutions, practitioners and technology providers within two major conferences – to discuss the recent trends, investments in technology integration and about overcoming the challenges for healthcare stakeholders in integrating new innovations.
