HiMSS APAC 2017 Main Conference | Population Track, P4
Healthcare cost increases continue to outpace the rest of the economy by a considerable margin, and will continue to grow as the Singapore population ages. Globally, chronic disease and falls prevention programs powered by telehealth and predictive analytics have successfully reduced healthcare costs by lowering hospital admissions, enabling ageing at home and reducing health risks. Using case studies, Sze Yunn will show how digital health, big data and predictive analytics have been adopted effectively in US and Europe. She will discuss how insurers, corporations and healthcare providers in Singapore could come together to change the existing healthcare paradigm.
