Focus on what matters: patient centred care through digital transformation
The first episode in the series examines how health systems in the Asia pacific are driving digital transformation to ensure patient-centred care is at the heart of healthcare services.
The COVID-19 pandemic dramatically shifted the world towards digital transformation, opening up new possibilities for patient-centred care. These technological developments have galvanized the healthcare industry into thinking more deeply about what it truly means to be patient centric.
E-health services can provide patient-centred care by improving the quality of care according to individual needs, preferences and values. So how are healthcare providers in the Asia-Pacific region acting on these new opportunities, and what challenges lie ahead?
To examine these challenges and opportunities, host Elizabeth Sukkar, Senior Research Manager for Global Health Policy and Insights at the Economist Impact, is joined by:
Professor Jeffrey Braithwaite, Founding Director of the Australian Institute of Health Innovation and Director of the Centre for Healthcare Resilience and Implementation Science and Professor of Health Systems Research at Macquarie University
Dr. Loke Wai Chiong, Head of Integrated Health Promotion and Clinical Director of Programmes at the Ministry of Health Office for Healthcare Transformation in Singapore
Ai Ling Sim-Devadas, founding co-chair of the SingHealth Patient Advocacy Network
Digital health has really opened up many possibilities. But if it’s not approached, designed and executed with the needs of patients and their family caregivers in mind, it is not going to fulfill its promise.”

We have to have a better view of patient-clinician partnerships, so that patients are empowered and have a voice.”
