12th Asia Conference on Healthcare and Health Insurance

20-21 Mar 2017, Mandarin Orchard Hotel, Singapore

Theme: "Strategic, Defensive & Inclusive Health Covers from Cradle to Grave"

Embracing IoT to Face Rising Healthcare Demand and Cost While Keeping Covers Affordable

Health insurance plays a critical role in the life of people. The Internet of Things (IoT) and mobility in the context of ageing societies are creating enormous opportunities for insurers to leverage on and provide better customer experience, and encourage fitness & wellness, while simultaneously improving profitability. Insurers have a tremendous chance to reinvent their role in healthcare from being a payer to an active player, in meeting today’s customers’ expectations, enhancing experiences and improving outcomes for health!

Over the years, Asia Insurance Review’s Healthcare Insurance conference series has touched on the Smart Health Insurer, Prevention & Wellness; Wealth & Health; Responding to Dynamic Demand for Healthcare Covers; and the Challenge of Meeting Rising Healthcare Needs, including the new frontiers on big data, predictive analytics, telemedicine, wearables and digital healthcare.

This year, the two-day conference will look at more cultural and policy matters in healthcare as well as market and operational issues like “What drives competition in healthcare”’; “When the two worlds meet: Is Health A Life or General Business”; “Dynamics of writing policies for the Aged”; “Health and the Ageing Society” as well as comparison of how different markets around the world respond to Health covers for the young to the old, and the overall role of the insurance industry in serving the society as a whole.
