Supporting the thought-leadership pillar of Medical Festival Asia, the two-day conference consisted of three tracks.
The conference track has grown from coverage on streams featuring medical travel operations to all industry practices, patient outreach domestic and international, and innovations evolving the landscape.
The closed-door curated environment allows delegates to feel comfortable to share and ask candid questions amongst their peers facing similar challenges in their own path to growth success.
Ageing population, informed patients, and increased health awareness are some of the key challenges faced by the global healthcare system.
Specifically, the need for a more accessible, affordable, patient-centric, and personalised treatment is prevalent in the Asia Pacific, where the demographic is diverse, opportunity is immense, and population is huge. This dream is within reach, but it requires stakeholders to work together in embracing digital technology in the highly regulated medical space.
We are heading towards a world of exponential transformation, where the healthcare industry is heavily disrupted by the advent of new technologies. However, the availability of solutions is often not directly translated into improving patient care.
The healthcare model has shifted from being doctor-centric to patient-centric. Themed around this paradigm shift, the conference track looks at how providers manage their digital transformations to better user journeys and stay competitive and attractive to medical tourists.
Understandably, healthcare systems in developing countries tend to be highly cost-sensitive and heavily regulated. Hence, there is a need to bridge patients, providers, and innovators to collaborate and explore ways to translate innovation into patient-beneficial solutions.
We will explore the growth of healthcare start-ups, insurer-tech, and well-funded young technology players and discuss its impact on the ecosystem, from collaborations to disruptions.
From a growth spectrum, we will analyse the private equity challenges and opportunities, reviewing insights to fostering cross-border and cross-industry collaborations, aiding in opportunities to build pipeline flow by connecting investors and providers in this dynamic healthcare landscape in the Asia Pacific.
The GlobalHealth Asia-Pacific Summit attracts thought-leaders, industry pioneers, investors, and prominent individuals across disciplines related to or within healthcare.
