ACCESS Health Southeast Asia and Finn Partners Asia Release Report on the Impact of Digital Innovations on Healthcare in Asia

Finn Partners Asia, a global marketing and communications agency, and the ACCESS Health Southeast Asia office recently announced the launch of its What The Tech: Impact of Digital Innovations on Healthcare in Asia report

As the press release about the launch noted, “Asia is a region where people have better access to a smart phone than to a doctor. The demand for high quality healthcare products and services will continue to rise as the middle-income group grow and age or as lifestyles change. In eight out of ten Southeast Asian countries, more than a third of healthcare expenses are paid out-of-pocket by individuals. Cloud-based platforms, emerging technologies, and modern data centres are breaking down barriers in terms of access, cost, and computing power, allowing data-driven health research to reach a new frontier.”

The report looks at how digital innovation – specifically innovations related to healthcare delivery, financing, and discovery – has the potential to bridge the widening healthcare coverage gap in the region.

Upon the release of the report, ACCESS Health Country Director for Singapore stated, “Without digital transformation, there is no health transformation. In Asia, we are at a pivotal point where the combined power of political commitment and digital technology will help countries achieve the goal of health for all citizens. We’re excited to collaborate with Ying Finn on this report which highlights some of the biggest trends in this space in Asia.”

“There is a tremendous opportunity to increase affordable healthcare coverage through digital solutions in Asia Pacific. We are seeing incredible innovation by both traditional healthcare organizations and new healthtech players that is transforming this dynamic market,” said Shuchi Joseph, Vice President, PR & Asia Health Practice, Finn Partners. “Health is Finn Partners’ largest global practice today. I am very proud to be working with our experts in Consumer, Health, and Technology to support all the brands in the health ecosystem as they navigate the brave new world of tech-powered patient care.”

The release of this report follows the launch of FINN Wellness Collaborative, a global offering dedicated to elevating brands that support a better, healthier world. Download a copy of the What The Tech: Impact of Digital Innovations on Healthcare in Asia report here: https://cutt.ly/Wr3XsVG
