Presented by SGInnovate and Nordic Innovation House
Healthcare systems are undergoing a dramatic transformation as we press on with the "three beyonds" laid out by the Ministry of Health (MOH). Technology is the enabler for achieving holistic integrated care and opportunities for prevention and early intervention of health conditions.

In 2018, Mr Gan Kim Yong, former Minister of Health Singapore, addressed the importance of care integration at the Global Conference on Integrated Care. Integrated Care has become increasingly important in Singapore's young and ageing population as citizens may have one or multiple health conditions such as chronic diseases in diabetes, cancer and mental health.

As a result, Singapore has prioritised transforming its healthcare system into a multidisciplinary, patient-centric and integrated care approach for the future. One such method is co-developing innovative new care models with health and community care partners and working with different startups or stakeholders to develop a seamless patient care journey. Collaboration is critical to achieving Singapore's goal to shift care beyond the hospital into the community and closer to home.

On the other hand, the Nordics are ahead of the curve in technology adoption and business model initiatives centred around certain healthcare areas. It aims to address the pressure on the demand for health services from the ageing population, the growing rate of chronic diseases, and the increasing expectations of patients. In this way, the healthcare and eHealth strategies in all the Nordic countries both support the transformation of the Nordic healthcare systems and comply with digital transformation initiatives and a sustainable roadmap for change.

Join our session to learn more about the future of holistic integrated care, such as how the approach aims to be multidisciplinary and how technology innovations are involved for future-ready integrated systems.
