Reimagining healthcare in the new normal through innovations

The fact is: COVID is not going away, not anytime soon, and maybe not ever. As the world, after witnessing how badly COVID has crippled economies, decides to slowly ease up restrictions and learn to live with the virus somehow, how do we in the healthcare industry manage this new reality? How do we prepare for this and the uncertainty that continues to loom in the future?

This year, HMA together with healthcare leaders featuring Singapore’s MOH Office of Healthcare Transformation (MOHT), answers how. We bring together top hospital executives and thought leaders in Asia and around the world, to examine this new frontier in healthcare.

      • Learn about MOHT’s hospital at home pilot in Singapore, where an inpatient of your hospital is cared for at home
      • Understand the nuances of connectivity and patient-centredness with digital solutions i.e. telehealth, remote devices, AI and IoMT
      • Keep abreast with not just the norm but the standard of care on digital medical devices
      • There’s digital for almost everything today. Learn what’s right for your hospital
      • Most importantly, amidst all the frenzy, learn how you can innovate your healthcare business model

Join your peers in the healthcare industry this September and together be prepared for the aftermath of the COVID pandemic.

    Lim Cher Wee Chief Operating Officer & Head Integrated General Hospital, MOH Office of Healthcare Transformation Singapore

    Cher Wee leads MOHT’s collaborations in developing shared care approaches that strive towards delivering frictionless acute-to-community transitions. Such approaches seek to reduce fragmentation and improve outcomes for patients with multiple health and/or social issues, by enabling informed choices. In the transitional care space, for example, Cher Wee’s team has been developing a set of customisable digital capabilities for data assembly and sharing across settings and care teams. His team has also been supporting substitutive approaches like Hospital at Home, where targeted lower acuity conditions could be right sited safely in the community while still acutely unwell. Prior to joining MOHT, Cher Wee served at Singapore’s public hospitals in a few roles. He led frontline staff in clinical operations support, analytics, infrastructure redesign, and process improvements.

Dr Poonam Khetrapal Singh, Regional Director, Southeast Asia, World Health Organisation

  • Dr Poonam Khetrapal Singh

    Regional Director, Southeast Asia, World Health Organisation

    Dr Poonam Khetrapal Singh Regional Director, Southeast Asia, World Health Organisation

    Dr Poonam Khetrapal Singh, an Indian national, became the first woman to assume the office of WHO Regional Director for South-East Asia on 1 February 2014. In September 2018 Member States unanimously nominated Dr Khetrapal Singh for a second five-year term as Regional Director. The 144th Session of the WHO Executive Board formally appointed her to the position on 26 January 2019.
    Dr Khetrapal Singh’s second term is defined by a simple though powerful maxim: ‘Sustain. Accelerate. Innovate’. The imperative each word represents complements Dr Khetrapal Singh’s original ‘One by Four’ plan and the seven (later to become eight) Flagship Priorities that, since 2014, anchored Region-wide progress. Prior to Dr Khetrapal Singh’s service as Regional Director of the WHO South-East Asia Region, for over two decades she was a civil servant in India as a member of the Indian Administrative Services. This included roles as Secretary of Health and Family Welfare, Managing Director of Punjab Financial Corporation and Punjab Industrial development corporations in the State of Punjab, which has a population of 30 million. In 1987 she moved to the Health, Population and Nutrition Department of The World Bank. In 1998 she joined WHO headquarters as Executive Director, Sustainable Development and Healthy Environments Cluster, and became a member of the Director-General’s Cabinet. Dr Khetrapal Singh then served as WHO Deputy Regional Director for the South-East Asia Region and in February 2013 she joined the Government of India’s Ministry of Health & Family Welfare as Advisor for International Health, where her principal task was to strengthen global health outcomes and provide guidance to the Ministry to take forward the international health agenda. Dr Khetrapal Singh has devoted more than three decades to strengthening public health as a leader and manager at national and international levels. She has vast experience in developing evidence-based, scientifically sound policy in complex state, national and international health systems due to her work managing low-resourced health systems, leading large multi-sectoral teams and collaborating with global partners and public health leaders. By building a strong and responsive WHO Regional Office, as per Dr Khetrapal Singh’s original vision, Member States are in a compelling position to rapidly advance the health and well-being of their people. This is of utmost importance as the Region continues to pursue its own Flagship Priorities, the ‘triple billion’ targets outlined in the 13th General Programme of Work, and the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda.

    Dr Poonam Khetrapal Singh Regional Director, Southeast Asia, World Health Organisation

    Dr Poonam Khetrapal Singh, an Indian national, became the first woman to assume the office of WHO Regional Director for South-East Asia on 1 February 2014. In September 2018 Member States unanimously nominated Dr Khetrapal Singh for a second five-year term as Regional Director. The 144th Session of the WHO Executive Board formally appointed her to the position on 26 January 2019.
    Dr Khetrapal Singh’s second term is defined by a simple though powerful maxim: ‘Sustain. Accelerate. Innovate’. The imperative each word represents complements Dr Khetrapal Singh’s original ‘One by Four’ plan and the seven (later to become eight) Flagship Priorities that, since 2014, anchored Region-wide progress. Prior to Dr Khetrapal Singh’s service as Regional Director of the WHO South-East Asia Region, for over two decades she was a civil servant in India as a member of the Indian Administrative Services. This included roles as Secretary of Health and Family Welfare, Managing Director of Punjab Financial Corporation and Punjab Industrial development corporations in the State of Punjab, which has a population of 30 million. In 1987 she moved to the Health, Population and Nutrition Department of The World Bank. In 1998 she joined WHO headquarters as Executive Director, Sustainable Development and Healthy Environments Cluster, and became a member of the Director-General’s Cabinet. Dr Khetrapal Singh then served as WHO Deputy Regional Director for the South-East Asia Region and in February 2013 she joined the Government of India’s Ministry of Health & Family Welfare as Advisor for International Health, where her principal task was to strengthen global health outcomes and provide guidance to the Ministry to take forward the international health agenda. Dr Khetrapal Singh has devoted more than three decades to strengthening public health as a leader and manager at national and international levels. She has vast experience in developing evidence-based, scientifically sound policy in complex state, national and international health systems due to her work managing low-resourced health systems, leading large multi-sectoral teams and collaborating with global partners and public health leaders. By building a strong and responsive WHO Regional Office, as per Dr Khetrapal Singh’s original vision, Member States are in a compelling position to rapidly advance the health and well-being of their people. This is of utmost importance as the Region continues to pursue its own Flagship Priorities, the ‘triple billion’ targets outlined in the 13th General Programme of Work, and the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda. It is also vital to tackling the many-faceted challenges that are becoming increasingly prominent, from climate change to antimicrobial resistance. Dr Khetrapal Singh’s results-based focus, her commitment to supporting Member States, and her dedication to driving real change in the lives of the most vulnerable will continue to serve the Region well. Though the Region faces a range of challenges and is pursuing a series of ambitious targets, Dr Khetrapal Singh’s strong, responsive and strategically sound leadership is best-placed to sustain the Region’s remarkable achievements, accelerate progress, and harness the full power of innovation in the Region’s ongoing quest to advance health and well-being for all.
