18th Hospital Management Asia to be held in Hanoi on 11-12 September


Hospital Management Asia 2019, the annual event for Asian healthcare leaders, will be held September 11-12, 2019, at the National Convention Centre of Vietnam.

Hospital management and healthcare professionals from around the Asia Pacific region will gather at HMA to exchange ideas and insights on evolving business models, innovative technologies and improvements on the management of healthcare systems.

Attendees can expect to tackle topics such as the latest technologies for healthcare, cost reduction and patient safety to increase efficiency and improve patient outcomes. The conference will also discuss Healthcare 4.0, investments in hospitals and healthcare across Asia, and winning the war for healthcare talent, among others.

This year, the conference will feature five main streams, including a new one for C-level leaders which will discuss financial sustainability through investments, the impact of public policy for hospital services and how to address the challenges in the implementation of value-based care. Other streams include Safety, Quality & Accreditation; Patient Care & Engagement; Talent Management; and Healthcare 4.0.

Running alongside the conference is the Asian Hospital Management Awards that recognise and honour hospitals in the Asia Pacific that implement best practices. All projects submitted by Vietnamese hospitals will also be eligible for the ‘Most Improved Local Hospital’ category — a special award for entries by Vietnamese hospitals only.

Madam Prof. Nguyen Thi Kim Tien, Minister of Health for Vietnam, said, “The government has developed an action plan to improve healthcare in Vietnam on all fronts. One of the best opportunities to further our mission towards reform lies at Hospital Management Asia, with several stellar case studies from across the region.”

“Healthcare is accelerating exponentially in Asia and there is no better place to keep up with the latest in the industry to meet the demands of their respective communities. The Ministry is pleased to host the event for the second time, and I am excited to be part of the movement to bring hospitals, investors and solution providers together to help our hospitals provide better service and the best patient outcomes possible.”

Madam Prof. Tien will also be leading the Ministers of Health Panel, alongside YB Datuk Seri Dr. Dzulkefly Ahmad, Minister of Health for Malaysia, and Dr. Kidong Park, Country Representative – Vietnam, World Health Organization.

“Siemens Healthineers is proud to be associated with Hospital Management Asia as a title sponsor for the third consecutive year. This year at HMA, we are focusing on how we enable healthcare providers to deliver high-value care at low cost by means of expanding precision medicine, transforming care delivery, and improving patient experience, all enabled by digitalizing healthcare,” said Elisabeth Staudinger, President of Siemens Healthineers Asia Pacific.

“We look forward to this opportunity of interacting with the C-level community while understanding their demands and concerns in Southeast Asia.”
