Overview of the HIMSS AsiaPac 2015 Digital Healthcare Week : HIMSS Making SMART Healthcare a Reality in APAC

Introduction

The Health Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) is a globally renowned not-for-profit organization taking groundbreaking steps towards improving the safety, quality, and efficiency of healthcare through information technology (IT). The organization leverages a network of over million experts and members to drive healthcare innovation through live and online events, industry dialogues, and direct participation to support technology adoption. HIMSS AsiaPac organized the Digital Healthcare Week in Singapore from to September 2015, dubbed the largest healthcare IT conference and exhibition in the region. The event brings together healthcare professionals, IT vendors, policy makers, and key opinion leaders (KOLs) from all over the world with the goal of sharing industry knowledge, innovations, and implementation best practices in an academically charged commercial forum. Frost & Sullivan attended the event and now presents highlights from the conference, including notable speeches and exhibits along with our opinion on the direction of healthcare IT in Asia-Pacific (APAC).

Attendees also included government policy makers (4%), highlighting the impact the conference has on actual health system developments in the region.

The theme for 2015, “SMART Healthcare: Transforming How We Manage Health,” shows how far APAC has come as a region on its Connected Health journey. Of course, there are large pockets still struggling to establish basic public infrastructure, such as reliable electricity, continuous Internet access, advanced broadband, and hospitals and primary care centers; as a region, APAC is ready to embrace the idea of SMART Healthcare, which encompasses not only investments in technology, but more importantly, implementing a social and regulatory framework that supports technology adoption.
