As the COVID-19 pandemic continues its devastation across the world, it has exposed major flaws in the healthcare system and served as a poignant reminder that we should never let a crisis go to waste.

With technological innovation moving at an incredible pace, there presents a real opportunity for us to reshape the future of healthcare.

Home to 60% of the world’s population and close to half a billion people aged 65 or older by 2025, growth in healthcare spending in Asia Pacific is almost double the rest of the world.

The region’s healthcare ecosystem needs to undergo a transformational change to accelerate access to quality care.

The time is now to make our collective smart bets. Now in its seventh year, MedTech Forum 2021 (MTF2021) will focus on a few key themes that offer the potential to transform how healthcare is delivered and improve patient outcomes:

The healthcare model of the future will require the concerted effort of stakeholders across the public and private sector, to collaborate and make actionable commitments.
