    The Future of
    Healthcare and You

    Broadcast date: Wed 9 Nov 2016

     

    Did you know that 70% of all healthcare costs are spent in Diagnosis and Treatment? It is time to look beyond sick care, as healthcare systems around the world face ever increasing challenges, such as global resource constraints that drive the need to reduce cost, increase access and improve outcomes, aging populations and the rise of chronic conditions that drive the shift of care to lower cost settings and homes.

     

    What will the future of healthcare look like? How can health systems evolve to meet these challenges? Stay tuned to find out how an integrated approach from Healthy Living up and Home Care to diagnosis and treatment  can be more effective for preventing illness and ensuring better patient outcomes.

    Connected Care

    Broadcast date: Wed 16 Nov 2016

    According to the World Health Organization, the proportion of the world’s population over 60 will nearly double from 12% to 22% by 2050, with over half residing in Asia Pacific (APAC). At the same time, the rise of chronic and non-communicable diseases (NCD) will incur an estimated cost of US$47 trillion globally by 2030.

     

    Meeting these emerging challenges will require a new approach to healthcare; one that applies technology to address communication gaps between the various parts of a healthcare system and then creates a constant feedback loop between patients, institutions and healthcare professionals.

     

    In this episode of Perspectives, our experts address how a digital technology can help  can maximize efficiency, minimize cost, improve patient experience and ultimately, foster a healthier population.

    Episode 3

    Ageing in Place

    Broadcast date: Wed 23 Nov 2016

    Asia is on track to becoming the oldest region in the world in the next few decades with longer life expectancy and lower birth rates.  

     

    However, ageing and chronic conditions can make daily living increasingly challenging. Our fragmented healthcare industry cannot prevail if we want to crest this silver tsunami and provide better healthcare for the elderly.

     

    With countries like Singapore pushing to become a medical hub in Asia, could pooling resources with private corporations, academia and the state be the the solution to co-create novel high value solutions? Tune in to find out how.

    Episode 5: Empowering you

    Is the world ready for integrated healthcare?  

     

    Philips wanted to understand the perception towards connected care and the role it plays in the future of healthcare.

     

    We asked patients and healthcare professionals in 13 countries for their views on how prepared their national health systems are to address future health challenges, to create the Future Health Index, based in access, integration and adoption.
