The event is a regional healthcare innovation conference that examines the value of technology in improving healthcare provision and the efficiencies it brings to healthcare systems. Leaders such as department heads and senior management are invited to join the healthcare I.T. conference to network and exchange strategies with their peers. The Healthcare Innovation Manila and Kuala Lumpur Series would take place on the 27th of October at the Dusit Thani Hotel, and the 3rd of November at Renaissance Hotel respectively. Participants will be exposed to new technologies that can help transform business strategies into quantifiable and measureable business outcomes. Trend Spotting for Healthcare Industries NTT DATA Solutions’ Human Capital Management Practice Lead for Australia, Mark Wade, will be part of the Panel that will discuss “The Future of Healthcare in Philippines and Malaysia.” He has 13 years business experience in human resource, payroll administration and payroll/compensation & benefits management across a variety of roles and industries. He has also architected NTT DATA’s Talent Management for Healthcare solutions. The talk aims to showcase Cloud applications for Healthcare including Procurement and Human Resources. Among the pressing issues affecting healthcare talent management are the often fast-paced impacts of technological change in the digital age; the expanding scope of global demand and dependencies; the ageing population and the role of increased urbanisation to patient care and workforce acquisition and retention. “The healthcare digital landscape is quickly changing in South East Asia. The era of digitised medicine is upon us. The implementation of electronic medical records in many hospitals will simplify healthcare delivery, remote diagnostics and other advanced technologies will increase the quality of healthcare. A study by Deloitte states that regulatory compliance and patient safety continues to emerge with enforcement in some countries still is an issue,” according to Wade. He adds that, “this disruptive innovation will have a profound effect on our most important healthcare resource – the talented people that make up our workforce.  Our often forgotten HR systems and processes also have to adapt to this changing landscape – through the whole of organisation.  In a competing regional healthcare sector, failure to address this will result not only in a financial bottom line impact, but more importantly add risk to patient safety, quality and workforce related regulatory compliance.” NTT DATA Fast-track Solutions NTT DATA’s Panel Sponsorship in the Healthcare Innovation Solutions Day Series allows NTT DATA Business Solutions to impart industry expertise on technological innovations on the healthcare industry.
