10 June, 8PM SGT / 10 AM BST / 9am Brazil Time

Key takeaways

  1. While the first wave of the pandemic was critical, what is more concerning is the long tail in the subsequent waves because of the extended duration. This is where digital transformation and healthcare play a significant role in helping us cope with riding through the pandemic waves.
  2. We need to visualize a new reality. Healthcare will not be the same after this pandemic, but it must improve for the better.
    • The future of innovation needs to be faster and more flexible. During the COVID-19 pandemic, we have seen a lot of efforts in vaccine development and treatment innovation.
    • Consumer expectations are rising. Digital transformation in healthcare is being fed by consumers in other industries. How do we create new solutions and re-invent older technology?
    • Innovation and digital transformation in healthcare needs to be informed by a mix of the three pillars – Digital health, Precision health and Big Data, to effectively achieve the right outcomes. Digital health care the tools that we are creating, including 3-D printing and wearable devices, and this needs to be combined with data to serve the right group of people.
    • De-hospitalizing technology to bring care closer to the patients. Digital health and medical technologies, including healthcare personalization delivery via smartphones and online consultation, are shifting the perception from disease management to healthy lifestyle management.
    • Patient Engagement is key for all care plans. Patients are now more involved and want to be part of their health care journey. It is important to keep this in mind and learn from other industries to achieve this.
  3. Think differently. The COVID-19 pandemic has presented a new set of challenges and to fight the pandemic with digital transformation, we need to think differently.
