This is a critical time for the healthcare industry. As it emerges from a severe global pandemic, vulnerabilities in the healthcare landscape are highlighted, with implications for the future of medicine. Now is the right time for healthcare leaders to maintain momentum on the silver-linings and adaptations of the crisis: the loosening of regulatory hurdles that have driven innovation, the enhanced collaborations across sectors, and the visibility of the significant impact of vaccines on people's health. Future of Healthcare Week will examine the vulnerabilities and opportunities that the recent crisis catalysed, giving a 360-degree view of the future of healthcare in Asia and beyond, and will explore how silos can be broken down to further the efficiency and sustainability of healthcare for all.

Discussions will address the biggest industry issues including healthcare-system weaknesses, labour shortages, healthy ageing, data application and ownership during the rise of Web 3.0 and much more through insight-driven discussions including Removing silos-collaborating for success; Supply chains: future-proofing for resilience in healthcare systems; Headhunting for health: alleviating the labour shortage; Healthspan over lifespan: mitigating the diseases of ageing; Data and interoperability in healthcare: ethics, opportunities and the way forward.
