In its seventh year, the annual medical technological forum held by the Asia Pacific Medical Technology Association (APACMed) is expecting 1,500 virtual and physical delegates from across the healthcare ecosystem, including policymakers and healthcare practitioners, academia, hospital groups, payers, MedTech companies, and technology firms.
Under the theme, Health Futures by 2025, Asia Pacific MedTech Forum 2021 will feature an inspiring speaker line-up of futurists, business leaders, and thought leaders and a Virtual Showcase presenting cutting edge medical innovations in the hospital and home care settings.
Driven by shifting demographics, rising consumer expectations and technological innovations, the future of healthcare in Asia Pacific is primed for significant transformation.
