EUROCHAM: PERSONALISED HEALTHCARE AS A NEW FRONTIER IN MEDICAL INNOVATION

Advances in digital technology and data science can have many positive implications for medical practice. Of these, personalised healthcare provides patients and physicians with a unique opportunity to redefine what truly equal access to healthcare can look like.

Tailored solutions for the treatment and care of individual patients can better account for their genetic characteristics, result in the more efficient allocation of medical resources across health systems, more targeted research and development benefiting physician effectiveness: bringing people closer to universal health coverage and financially sustainable healthcare solutions.

In Asia and around the world, such personalised solutions are becoming increasingly more achievable given recent improvements in digital health and infrastructure permitting the use of real-world evidence in addressing healthcare challenges.

But why is a shift from one-size-fits-all healthcare to personalised solutions more compelling to patients, physicians and policymakers?

What opportunities does personalised healthcare present for systems serving ageing populations?
How can Singapore and its neighbours leapfrog countries with more advanced healthcare capabilities through the effective use of technology?

On 4 November 2020, EuroCham explores how personalised healthcare can improve patients’ access to treatment and care, lend them agency to make decisions on personal health and wellbeing, and pave the way for more affordable and sustainable healthcare financing.
