asia/pacific, healthcare reforms
Recent developments in eHealth are moving in several key fronts — toward an evidence-based practice of medicine in a connected environment, the digitization of health information for interoperable electronic health records (EHRs), web-based communications solutions for a seamless transfer of patient information from one institution in one region to another in a different region, integration of existing systems for a cost-effective way of implementing eHealth, and increased consumer participation in healthcare.
According to IDC Health Insights, the following are the key drivers of eHealth in the Asia/Pacific region:
At the IDC Health Insights’ first Singapore eHealth roundtable last Wednesday, the topic of eHealth transformation was high on the agenda for the delegates. Analysts from IDC Health Insights Asia/Pacific actively engaged with invited C-level healthcare IT practitioners in in-depth discussions relating to strengthening business-IT alignment strategies and shared anecdotal best practices in ICT implementations for the Asia/Pacific healthcare sector.
We will be publishing the event's proceedings in our IDC Health Insights report series, the “Asia/Pacific Healthcare Country Profile Service” soon. If you would like to get hold of this report, please contact me at email@example.com or my colleague Janet Chiew at firstname.lastname@example.org.
