Building long term sustainable and personalised healthcare systems

28th Jan 2021 12:00 - 13:00 SGT
We are excited to announce the launch of the Asia-Pacific Personalised Health Index, part of the FutureProofing Healthcare initiative. The Index is a first-of-its-kind policy tool that provides a unique overview of the personalised health readiness of 11 health systems across Asia-Pacific.

The Index was launched in Asia-Pacific during a webinar โ€˜Building long-term sustainable and personalised healthcare systems,โ€™ hosted in partnership with the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU). 

The webinar featured a panel discussion with health experts (see the speaker list below) from across the region and moderated by the EIU. Drawing on the insights from the Index, this virtual discussion addressed key questions including:


  • Could the COVID-19 pandemic catalyse overdue transformative change when it comes to the adoption of personalised healthcare in the region?
  • How can we move beyond thinking about the patient to thinking about people before they become patients?
  • How should policymakers weigh immediate affordability against potential long-term economic impact?
