Panel #1: Future-Proofing for a Super-Aging Society
Singapore’s aging population is growing rapidly, with an estimate of 1 in 4 citizens being over the age of 65 by 2030. Currently, conversation on the ageing population centers on healthier and more active lifestyles while ageing in the workplace is rarely addressed. Organizations now need to start strategizing for an older workforce by going beyond workplace health initiatives and consider how they can support their employees to age healthfully and with purpose.
With the Healthier SG framework calling on closer collaboration from healthcare providers throughout the whole life cycle, how can industry partner with government to transform care at home, at work and in communities?
Join our panel as they explore how industry and healthcare players partner together to better support Singapore’s super-aging society.
11:25 AM - 12:05 PM
Panel #2: Advancing the Digital Healthcare Ecosystem
With the rise of telehealth, remote care, and an increasingly digitalized healthcare landscape, data sharing, privacy and security are important concerns for both healthcare providers and patients. For healthcare players, data sharing can advance a more coordinated and holistic patient care that can lead to better patient outcomes. With the recent announcement of the Health Information Bill, which aims to better facilitate and protect data sharing, there is immense opportunity for the healthcare industry to collaborate with the Singapore government in facilitating data sharing and building the infrastructure needed for a more digital forward healthcare ecosystem.
Join our panel as they discuss what infrastructure is needed to advance a digital healthcare ecosystem and how industry can support and partner with the Singapore government on building this ecosystem.
The healthcare sector faces the unique challenge of balancing sustainability goals while ensuring high levels of patient care and safety. Continuous R&D and innovation in health sciences may be the solution, but rising costs pose a challenge in encouraging increased investment. With the Healthier SG plan targeting lower healthcare fees, how can we ensure that healthcare financing and care delivery are sustainable while encouraging innovation?
Join our panel as they discuss the intersection of sustainability, value-based care, innovation, and financing in Singapore’s healthcare landscape and how industry and healthcare players can partner together on delivering healthcare solutions sustainably.
