Day 2 was themed “Be The Change in Medical Transformation”, which comprised of a seminar and expert panel discussion showing the several challenges and opportunities faced by the healthcare sector.
The pandemic has caused the pace of digitalisation to accelerate at breakneck speed. To work around safe distancing measures, cross-border travel restriction, and reduce the risks of patients being exposed to infection while waiting to see the doctor – telemedicine is becoming a de facto preference for many patients and healthcare providers to increase convenience, reduce costs, and minimise risks.
Although the most visible transformation can be seen from the way patients consult doctors, it’s important not to overlook the impact of technology on the rest of the medical and healthcare value chain. Digitalisation also exacerbates certain risks. Remote consultations and e-pharmacies require increased collection, sharing, and transmission of individuals’ data, sometimes across borders. This makes it important for healthcare service providers to ensure that they have the right data security, privacy, and governance practices in place to comply with local and international regulations – but medical professionals usually do not have the necessary expertise, which is why they need the support of industry players that do.
For this year’s edition, we were joined by expert speakers from Whitecoat, Hyphens Pharma, Vault Dragon, and Speedoc.
