Digital health is evolving rapidly and at HIMSS, we recognise the need to reflect these trends that we are seeing and ensure healthcare organisations remain far ahead of the curve.

The EMRAM is a progressively sophisticated roadmap that enables quality, safety and operational efficiency for health systems and providers. Together with healthcare and industry leaders, we have made changes to the EMRAM that reflect accurately our expectations of the modern EMR environment.

Session T2: Preventive and Data-Driven Care in Private Healthcare Organizations [More Info]
Dr. Kongkiat Kespechara, Chief Executive Officer, Bangkok Dusit Medical Services Group 3, Thailand

The new generation has a different outlook on preventive medicine. However, the government has a unique role to play in preventing infectious diseases. Consumers look to private healthcare organizations for chronic non-communicable disease prevention services. Are annual health screening examinations sufficient and how do we use the data and information in accordance with ethics and academic appropriateness? This is our challenge in the next decade.

We are all appreciative that the world is continuously changing. However, the rate and disruption of current changes are astonishing. The Thai healthcare system is not an exception in this evolving world. In order to maintain and improve the healthcare system for the Thai people, the adaption in the system is necessary.

Sirirajpiyamaharajkarun Hospital (SiPH) is one of the special projects of the Faculty of Medicine Siriraj Hospital, Mahidol University. The SiPH project reacts to the rapid change of the growing Thai economy. The purpose of the project is to provide the best clinical care with contribution back to Siriraj and society. The results and lessons from SiPH is beneficial to Siriraj Hospital to maintain the mission as 'the hospital of the land'.

The model and management knowledge from SiPH may also be useful for other healthcare professionals and providers to quickly adapt themselves to the evolving situation for maximal benefits of our healthcare system and patients.

13:45 - 14:30Session I4: Ageing-in-Place in a Smart City: Challenges, Opportunities and the Road Ahead [More Info]
Prof. Tan Hwee Xian, Assistant Professor of Information Systems (Practice), Singapore Management University, Singapore

With the increasing ageing population worldwide, cities must explore different ways in which they can take better care of their seniors. Ageing-in-place is a paradigm that is harmonious with the aspirations of the seniors to age gracefully, safely and comfortably in the community that they live in. By shifting the provision of care to the home and community where the senior is living in, ageing-in-place can thereby reduce public financial burden and alleviate the shortage of institutionalised placements.

In this talk, we will explore how smart city technologies - such as the Internet of Things (IoT) - can be harnessed to enhance care for seniors and improve care efficiency, to enable ageing-in-place. In particular, we will share the experiences gleaned from project SHINESeniors in Singapore, which encompasses more than 90 sensor-instrumental residential homes of seniors, and which involves four different caregiving partners. In addition, we will present the challenges, opportunities and the road ahead for ageing-in-place in a smart city.

15:00 - 15:45Session I5: Tele-Fetal-Maternal Monitoring [More Info]
Dr. Paul Johnson, Clinical Scientist, United Kingdom

Fetal life is the most critical period for growth and development in the whole of life. It is dependent on maternal health which is equally dependent on the mother's lifestyle. A new 'telemedine' process must enable the populace to improve their health and benefit from using it, not merely extend the existing service to the remote patient - "more of the same".

This presentation will describe how a new approved method of measuring both maternal and fetal ecg continuously from the mother's abdomen using a wearable wireless monitor enables the health of both mother and fetus to be measured from early pregnancy to delivery. Join Dr. Paul Johnson as he shares the advantages of fetal-maternal monitoring from anywhere, at anytime.
