Here's what you should expect at the 2017 Healthcare Asia Forum

It will be on February 16 at the Makati Shangri-La.

Healthcare Asia will be kicking off its 3-city road show with its Manila leg, and attendees can look forward to expert insights and intelligent panel sessions on digitalisation and medical tourism trends.

Asia’s healthcare system is struggling with rising costs and uneven quality of healthcare delivery. According to Murray AItken from IMS Institute for Healthcare Informatics, over the past years, there has been a fundamental shift in expectations for healthcare systems: that they transform from supply-driven healthcare systems to patient-centred systems organised around what patients need. What measures are currently in place amongst healthcare players and hospitals to keep costs down while keeping a high value on patient care? What obstacles are to be foreseen both on healthcare players and patients? 

Key representatives from the Department of Health, Philippine Hospital Association, Philippine Heart Center, St. Luke's Medical Center, and Cardinal Santos Medical Center will share insights on other pertinent topics.

Healthcare Asia Forum's Manila leg will be on February 16 at the Makati Shangri-La from 8:30AM to 11:00AM.
