The search is on for the top hospitals, clinics, and pharmaceutical companies in Asia

Deadline of entries for the Healthcare Asia Awards and Healthcare Asia Pharma Awards is on 29 January 2021.

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected a lot of industries across the globe but it has definitely affected the healthcare sector the most. As the virus continues to proliferate, lockdowns and social distancing measures were imposed to mitigate its spread.

This has pushed many healthcare and pharmaceutical companies to innovate and reinvent initiatives to better serve their patients and protect their employees amidst the crisis. The big push towards digitalisation across these industries has also challenged many companies to adapt new strategies. The healthcare companies that stand out are those that are able to navigate their way despite the challenges and up their game, whilst reaching their main goal in providing the best care and services to its patients.
