13th Singapore Public Health & Occupational Medicine Conference

Date/Time
04 Oct - 05 Oct, Thursday - Friday, 8:30 am - 5:00 pm
Venue
Description

The demand for healthcare resources is rapidly rising in many countries. This is driven by ageing populations, increasing chronic disease burdens and in some cases, newer but more costly modalities of treatment. Sustainability in healthcare is now more crucial than ever as we strive to provide safe, quality and value-based care to our patients and the populations which we serve. 

The theme “Sustainable Health for All” highlights the urgency of building sustainability in the healthcare system and the conference will bring together thought leaders, researchers, clinicians and policymakers to discuss this pertinent challenge. We will explore several areas critical to achieving sustainability: Shifting from "healthcare to health" will examine how we can invest in upstream preventive care to keep our populations healthy and reduce costlier downstream care. Maximizing value will deliberate how we can maximize health outcomes against the cost of delivering the outcomes, moving away from the traditional model of optimizing health outcomes at all cost. Harnessing the 4th Industrial Revolution technologies will explore how innovations in medical technologies and rapid advancements in information and communications technology (ICT) can help improve healthcare sustainability.

The need to change the way we think about, organize and deliver healthcare is more pressing than ever. Join us at the 13th PHOM conference to learn how we can accelerate these changes.
