The COVID-19 pandemic highlighted numerous shortcomings in the average public healthcare system.

But around the world, new healthtech solutions are relieving these pressures by enabling telehealth services in people’s homes and rural locations. As countries build new blueprints for healthcare systems, how can healthtech solutions be further integrated into healthcare delivery? In this episode, healthcare leaders discuss the solutions to a reimagined healthcare system. Read more about the session here.
The Asia Impact Conference Call Series is a collaboration between the Milken Institute and South China Morning Post that focuses on critical issues shaping the future of the Asia Pacific region. As the world continues to grapple with the global pandemic, Asia is well-positioned to guide the rest of the world on how to resume social and economic activities in new and safe ways. The global conversations on Asia tap into a wealth of knowledge from Milken Institute’s senior industry leaders and leverage on the editorial expertise of SCMP to offer meaningful insights on creating a safer and resilient space for communities and businesses.
