The healthcare industry in Asia and Africa region continue to deal with the fast advancing challenges. Escalating healthcare costs, limited funding for public healthcare, uninsured and aging population, insufficient healthcare services, economic inflation, unpredictable pandemic and new diseases, sophistication in insurance needs, traditional medicines, pricing and affordability are among the common headlines for these developing and emerging markets.
Malaysia Healthcare CEO, Suresh Ponnudurai will be speaking at the conference on a very engaging topic; ‘Taking Health to the Next Level with Medical Tourism for Insurers’

Despite the challenges, there is still great potential for strong business and revenue growth, considering the low penetration rate,tax relief incentive and health tourism. Insurers and reinsurers must choose the right perspective and formulate winning strategy such as through partnership, innovation, services, technology etc. Therefore, taking advantage on these challenges would create a long term competitive advantage for the company towards becoming the market leader.
Against this backdrop, The Malaysian Insurance Institute (MII) and the Federation of Afro-Asian Insurers and Reinsurers (FAIR) believe that it is timely to organise the FAIR International Health Insurance Conference under the theme Leveraging Business Challenges to Drive Growth.
The need to secure healthcare professionals in the medical industry has become a pressing issue for healthcare providers facing rapidly ageing populations. The healthcare talent shortage is probably the key influential factor that is affecting and limiting organizational excellence in the industry. As nations prepare for problems associated with fast ageing populations, provision of efficient healthcare delivery becomes increasingly important. More pressure and emphasis have been placed on providing quality care for citizens. As such, recruiting and retaining skilled and qualified healthcare providers remains the biggest challenge for almost all organizations.

A great interview by McKinsey & Co with Google’s Eric Schmidt! Google’s executive chairman shares his strategies on hiring, running meetings, designing “mobile first” business models, and addressing joblessness and education reform. On page 5, Mr. Schmidt gives his thoughts on healthcare and how everything should be simplified when we see a doctor and recommends storing our healthcare in a USB dongle or a Personal Health Record (PHR).
Malaysia Healthcare patients have been using a portable Personal Health Record (PHR) called the iPHER for a number of years that carries all their PHI which includes, medications, lab tests, diagnosis, immunizations, alternative procedures, digital images, dental records, ophthalmic care (lens and contact prescriptions) and DNA any where in the world with no need to access the Internet to view the information. Malaysia Healthcare currently uses this PHR to reduce medical errors and create continuity of care for their medical tourists.
Our thanks goes to Mr. Schmidt and Google for finding new ways to simplify our visit to our healthcare providers!

In the era of high technological advancement, Malaysia is not about to get left behind. This is a digital age where patients travelling beyond borders will have instant access where ever they are, with whatever device at hand. The Malaysian Government recently announced that local patients will have shorter waiting time and faster diagnosis of illnesses as the nation’s healthcare system and medical data of both outpatients and inpatients are computerised. At least 20 government hospitals nationwide will be able to serve patients faster by 2015 when medical records are accessible online. Clink on link below!
Malaysia Healthcare’s strategy is in line with the aspirations of the government to woo foreign patients to this country and making sure that health information is treated with great confidentiality. Therefore, Malaysia Healthcare’s patients use a Personal Health Record (PHR) called the iPHER to carry all their medical information in a digitized format which will also enable them to have good follow up care with their primary care physician upon return to their home country.
