Healthcare..in the era of disruption
Tuesday, November 26  | 9.15am – 10.00am
Auditorium 2

Technology is disrupting conventional knowledge, practices and business models of many sectors including healthcare. The dawn of the Fourth Industrial Revolution and the advances in telecommunication are presenting multiple strategies and challenges ahead which includes policy and regulation, clinical evidence, safety and quality, medical ethics and clinical practice.

The shaking up of the traditional healthcare market could be both exciting and terrifying. Services/technologies such as online platform, mHealth, internet of things (IoT), wearable devices, machine learning, big data and artificial intelligence (AI) allow more efficient and effective healthcare service delivery. However, these disruptions are also creating new opportunities to solve some of the biggest health-related challenges facing the world today.

This presentation will highlight digital transformation and revolution in health including efforts to review and develop regulatory strategies and policies to foster digital health technologies, advocate translational research, spur innovations and boost the digital economy while at the same time, building an enabling ecosystem in Malaysia.
