WIM Salon | Healthcare for 1.4 billion: From Digitalization to Big Data, and Beyond
As China's primary markets experiencing the "capital winter," healthcare industry could maintain its attractiveness in 2019, representing a safe harbour for businesses and investor. We invite you to attend our Salon to understand the cutting-edge trends and the new normal of the healthcare industry.
Beijing has set out the new vision and standards for the country’s near-future in healthcare, boldly stating that "1.4 billion people will be provided with high-quality healthcare services by 2030."
The country is currently struggling with scarce and unequally distributed human capital in healthcare services. Artificial Intelligence is expected to play a crucial role in overcoming scarce human capital and providing diagnosis and treatment for the masses.
The "Healthy China 2030 vision" is challenging to achieve without a comprehensive infrastructure overhaul in China's healthcare facilities, which we predict that will start from the digitization of healthcare services, reforms in the medical insurance system and the utilization of big data to provide smarter healthcare.
Financing the healthcare arising from the ageing population will be yet another major challenge that the country has to overcome.
To discuss the trends, we're gathering the industry leaders from medical AI, medical insurance and healthcare private equity.
We are more than excited to announce the Healthcare Session of WIM Salon X Beijing. The theme of the discussion is ‘Healthcare for 1.4 billion: from digitalization to big data, and beyond...‘
We will cover such topics, as:
The New Normal of China's healthcare under the policy reform framework;
Revolutionizing healthcare with big data;
Commercialization of AI + Healthcare;
Successful digital transformation strategies in healthcare;
The future of China's healthcare and Private Equity opportunities.
