HIMSS AsiaPac19 conference and exhibition will address issues in the shifting paradigm of healthcare
This marks the 13th year of the regional conference.
Healthcare and Information Management Systems Society Asia Pacific (HIMSS APAC), supported by the Ministry of Public Health Thailand, will organize the HIMSS AsiaPac19 Conference & Exhibition from 7-10 October 2019 in Bangkok, Thailand at the Centara Grand & Bangkok Convention Centre.
HIMSS AsiaPac19 marks the 13th year of the regional conference that has been held in countries including Australia, China, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea and Thailand, and this year’s theme “Empowering Value Creation” is an especially important one as we define the true value of healthcare in a time of shifting priorities and expectations within the health ecosystem.
As the healthcare paradigm shifts due to factors such as the advancement of information and technology and the changing expectations of healthcare stakeholders, HIMSS AsiaPac19 will offer global best practices to over 1,200 expected attendees from over 30 countries that will convene to plan for, implement and commit to creating quantifiable and sustainable healthcare for patients and consumers. This will be achieved through tracks led by esteemed global thought leaders and speakers throughout HIMSS AsiaPac19:
- Sustainability & Growth
- Patient Experience
- Cyber Security
- Unlocking the Value of Artificial Intelligence (AI)
- Value-Based Care
- Health 2.0
Other highlights of HIMSS AsiaPac19 include the 2nd regional HIMSS Asia Pacific CXO Dialogue, where C-Suite and industry leaders discuss policy, and current and future trends in healthcare; the Health 2.0 showcase with live demonstrations of healthcare innovations from budding entrepreneurs; and niche workshops and hospital tours for attendees to participate in.
“Digitalization throughout the health ecosystem is picking up pace in the region, public and private health systems alike. We are excited to be part of these digital transformations, and honored to be presenting some of these stories at this year’s conference,” said Harold Wolf III, President and CEO of HIMSS. “In addition, locally in Thailand, its 4.0 initiative is propelling huge digital investments in the country, healthcare being a prominent vertical especially with Thailand’s healthcare tourism being a vital economy driver. It is wonderful to be returning to Bangkok this year as we continue our mission to reform the global health ecosystem by leveraging the power of information and technology.”
Assistant Professor Korpong Rookkapan, MD, Chairperson of the HIMSS AsiaPac19 Organization Committee and Executive Consultant of Bumrungrad International, Thailand, noted, “At this moment, we are at a critical point in deciding where healthcare digital transformation is heading. As a member of the HIMSS AsiaPac19 Organizing Committee for the past three years, I know that there are many champions of healthcare in the Asia Pacific region who have achieved much and are ready to share inspiring stories, and we are bringing them to HIMSS AsiaPac19 to strengthen collaboration within the community and learn and grow together.”
The call for demonstrations for the Health2.0 showcase is still open to provide solutions that aid chronic disease management. More information can be found at: https://www.himssasiapacconference.org/
