Transforming Collaborative Healthcare: Efficient Addressing of Emerging Lifestyle Challenges
"The 6 largest economies in SEA (Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Philippines and Vietnam) are facing unprecedented rise in healthcare cost. Industry experts predicted that the rise of healthcare cost will outpace both GDP and population growth, leading to an estimated total healthcare cost of more than USD 750 billion by 2025."
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.
Are you seeking to understand the healthcare innovation 4.0 in Malaysia? And be a part of the exciting integration?
The Healthcare Innovation 4.0 Summit Malaysia 2019 is tailored to bring together the C-suite level, senior executives and decision makers in healthcare and aged care service providers, healthcare innovators, technology and solutions providers, digital & cyber security experts, regulators and policy makers, R&D and academics to discuss the latest Innovation trends, sharing case studies and challenges for healthcare innovation projects and explore Win-Win Partnership opportunities for new project development.
Join us at the Healthcare Innovation 4.0 Summit Malaysia to explore more opportunities in Healthcare Innovation!
Key Topics Presented Include:
Networking & Learning
Today, most of the Digital Diagnostic and Preventive Healthcare System are built on West’s healthcare data where genetics, lifestyles and food consumption patterns are highly different from the Southeast Asians. Sharing good quality data across Southeast Asia Region enables good data collections for AI to solve the regional healthcare problems at scale.
Rising healthcare costs, aging populations, and the rise in chronic disease incidence, along with governments dedicating more funds to public health, will result in healthcare expenditure rising to $13.92 trillion by 2025. With rising incidence of chronic diseases and cancers, the global mortality profile will shift toward non- communicable diseases by 2030. Healthcare trends in Asia of aging populations, rising chronic disease prevalence, and urbanization are bound to further strain healthcare systems already grappling with issues of healthcare access, quality, and cost. New treatment paradigms are required that integrate elements of prediction, prevention, and automation to make care more affordable and efficient. Millions of people die preventable deaths every year and this can be due to environmental factors, lifestyle choices, and genetic susceptibility. Leading causes for the majority of preventable deaths include cardiovascular disease, diabetes, obesity, chronic respiratory disease, and a number of infectious diseases. The healthcare industry has been a laggard in Big Data adoption as compared to other verticals and continues to battle challenges around interoperability, budget constraints, and insufficient strategic planning and change management. The intent to leverage the power of Big Data is evident across all industry stakeholders, including governments, payers, providers, suppliers and consumers. The goal is to make healthcare more predictive and prescriptive through meaningful information and insights. Big Data and analytics will play a key role in this direction, with the most important areas of application being population health management, clinical decision support, and real-world data. This session showcases the different technology innovations and regulatory changes that are impacting the management of chronic diseases and population health management.
