GlobalHealth Asia-Pacific Healthcare and Medical Tourism Summit

This pillar of Medical Festival Asia comprises a multi-track conference - GlobalHealth Asia-Pacific Healthcare and Medical Tourism Summit which will include latest industry practices, patient outreach – domestic and international, and healthcare innovations. Gathering industry leaders and senior management personnel for discussions, there will be three thought-leading tracks; Business of Healthcare, Digital Transformation & Healthcare Innovation, and Private Equity & Start-Up Disruption.


Ageing populations, informed patients and increased health awareness are some of the key challenges faced by global healthcare systems. Specifically, the need for more accessible, affordable and personalised treatments are becoming increasingly prevalent in Asia Pacific where the demographic is diverse and population size immense.

The dream for a more effective, patient-centric and personalised treatment is within reach, but it requires stakeholders to work together in embracing digital technology in the highly regulated medical space.


We are heading towards a world of exponential transformation where the healthcare industry is heavily disrupted by the advent of new technologies. However, the availability of solutions is often not directly translated into improving patient care.

The healthcare model has shifted from being doctor-centric to patient-centric. Themed around this paradigm shift, this conference track looks at how providers are managing their digital transformations to better user journeys, stay competitive and attractive to medical tourists.

Understandably, healthcare systems in developing countries tend to be highly cost sensitive and heavily regulated. Hence, there is a need to bridge patients, providers, innovators to collaborate and explore innovative ways to translate innovation into patient-beneficial solutions.


We will explore the impact the growth of healthcare start-ups, insurer-tech and well-funded young technology players are having on the ecosystem, from collaborations to disruptions.

From a growth spectrum, we will analyse the private equity challenges and opportunities, reviewing insights to fostering cross-border and cross-industry collaborations, and aiding in opportunities to build pipeline flow by connecting investors and providers in this dynamic healthcare landscape in the Asia Pacific.

Access to the Summit is Free for all registered visitors to MEDICAL FAIR ASIA
