The digital age is upon us. Mobile apps, robots, telemedicine, electronic health information systems, AI and many other technologies are shaping the way care teams treat patients. More and more hospitals are embracing digital transformation and adopting a culture of change.

But in Asia, many hospitals are still working towards becoming truly ‘connected’. According to Forbes, healthcare lags behind nearly 80% of other industries in innovative technology adoption, and in fact is at the bottom five across industries. This, however, is slated to change in the next three years.

Other than improving patient outcomes, leveraging on Healthcare 4.0 will help hospitals address global operational challenges. They will be able to connect to an ecosystem that includes academia, investors, healthcare start-ups and even their local communities to improve the healthcare industry as a whole.

Hospital Management Asia, the region’s leading conference for hospital leaders, C-level management and other change-makers in healthcare, brings this ecosystem to life. This learning-led summit will present case studies by future-ready hospitals and solutions providers, creating a forum for Asian hospitals to connect, network and collaborate.

The Healthcare 4.0 track will be focusing on topics such as the use of technology and systems to improve patient safety, health outcomes and the patient experience. Click here to download the latest agenda.
