Here's why you shouldn't miss the 3rd Healthcare Asia Forum Roadshow Series

The region’s top healthcare execs will talk about how to stay ahead of industry trends.

Healthcare Asia is back with the third Healthcare Asia Forum - Roadshow Series in Manila, Jakarta, and Bangkok this May 2019.

The annual forum will tackle the most pressing issues in today’s hospitals, including changing market structures, groundbreaking healthcare policies, and different approaches towards technological disruptions.

As Asian governments aggressively drive up healthcare budgets to address their populations’ changing needs, with World Bank figures pointing to spending taking up 6.77% of the East Asia & the Pacific’s GDP, hospitals needs to keep up and maximise investments not only to boost returns but to spur innovation.

A mix of healthcare executives and thought leaders in the government and private sector will gather to exchange ideas on the future of healthcare in Asia.
