In a Smart Nation, we drive the management of healthy lifestyles and its integration with the healthcare system through the smart use of data and new technologies, both hardware and software.
Utilising Internet of Things and wearables makes self-management of health easier and cheaper, and paves the way for a connected health platform for consumers, healthcare professionals and providers.
We created a whole week of health-related activities from 11 to 16 May 2015 to bring the community together to ‘play’ with technology and data, create new use cases and demonstrate how the role of “Smart Health” addresses changes in demographics and lifestyles, particularly in areas of rising concern such as obesity and chronic diseases, care for our seniors, etc.
Everyone was welcome to join the coLAB – whether they are data scientists, behavioural psychologists, healthcare professionals, policy makers, technologists, designers, marketers, students, mums or dads.
This was a focused week of activities, packed with content and discussions. Participants were encouraged to come and discover, network and hack. They had the opportunity to learn from health professionals, tech and data experts and mentors.
Interested start-ups / SMEs and innovation teams in large corporates were invited to share their insights, case studies, data or technology at the events.
