Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/gx3vh9/overview_of_the) has announced the addition of the "Overview of the HIMSS AsiaPac 2015 Digital Healthcare Week" report to their offering.
The Health Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) AsiaPac is organized the second annual Digital Healthcare Week, which took place in September 2015. The conference is regarded as a key industry event in the region, attended by leading health information technology vendors, healthcare providers, government personnel, industry experts, media, and researchers. This market insight highlights the topics and issues discussed at the conference.
HIMSS AsiaPac 2015 was attended by delegates, an 18% increase in conference attendance over the previous year. Attendees also included government policy makers (4%), highlighting the impact the conference has on actual health system developments in the region.
The theme for 2015, "SMART Healthcare: Transforming How We Manage Health," shows how far APAC has come as a region on its connected health journey. Of course, there are large pockets still struggling to establish basic public infrastructure, such as reliable electricity, continuous Internet access, advanced broadband, and hospitals and primary care centers.
As a region, APAC is ready to embrace the idea of SMART Healthcare, which encompasses not only investments in technology, but more importantly, implementing a social and regulatory framework that supports technology adoption. Countries working in this direction include Singapore, South Korea, Malaysia, Japan, India, and Indonesia.
