Understanding Asia’s Healthcare Technology Shifts


About this Event:

How are platform businesses moving into or accelerating expansion to meet rising healthcare needs in Asia? Digital platforms have come to be part of our everyday life from connecting with others, to transport to making a financial transaction. In the wake of a new normal with COVID-19, we have seen an exponential increase in the population turning to digital solutions for their health needs. According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), at least 58% of countries surveyed use telemedicine to some degree to replace in-person consultation and triaging. Beyond telemedicine, the rapidly growing demand from consumers, employers and governments for digital health, has opened up a window of opportunities for fast movers to introduce and scale solutions. In this session, we will discuss specific health opportunities these businesses are breaking into, their insights on the regional market demands and their perspective on the most promising developments to come.
