We want the best healthcare for all, but it must be accessible and affordable. This will continue to be an important driver of success for all countries.
The potential of technology to prevent, diagnose and treat disease and improve our well-being is poised to enter a new phase of dramatic growth. It is not just innovation in technology that will provide improved outcomes, but the business models that deliver the solutions.
We wanted to explore whether we could create solutions that moved beyond existing applications, some of them may just be collecting and displaying data. The future is ensuring the data is part of a closed loop system that provides updates, actions and monitoring to evaluate efficacy.
At the AIA-Konica Minolta Digital Health Hackathon we challenged participants to create solutions that would outline the vision of what healthcare in a Smart Nation – Singapore – should look like.
