The Future of Patient Care in a Digital World [Online Event]

Presented by SGInnovate and CATALYST

If this global pandemic has taught us anything, it is that digital healthcare solutions are increasingly becoming a mainstream offering. Key services like telehealth, clinical decision support and digital access to personal medical records, are just some examples that healthcare is moving away from being a predominantly encounter-based (and physical) care model.

Join us as we bring together the technologists and users in this session to discuss how many of them have leveraged their expertise and adapted technologies to meet an immediate need, and how patient care will look like post-COVID-19.

Date: 29 September 2020, Tuesday
Time: 11:00am – 12:00pm (Singapore Time / UTC+8)
