Event Details

Interoperability is probably the biggest challenge for APAC.


Medical device interoperability is the ability to safely, securely, and effectively exchange and use information among one or more devices, products, technologies, or systems. However, health data interoperability across vendors and borders is far from being reached. In hospitals today, more than ever, patients are treated with as many as a dozen medical devices in a typical intensive care unit, including defibrillators, electrocardiographs, vital sign monitors, ventilators and infusion pumps. These devices are often from different manufacturers and not connected, requiring a costly and complex IT infrastructure – and introducing the potential for miscommunication that could lead to adverse events.


While there has been progress made on interoperability standards, the healthcare industry continues to fall short on the adoption of those standards when they exist.

  1. What is the current state in the APAC region?
  2. What are the key challenges and limitations of interoperability in hospitals?
  3. And what role can the MedTech industry play to help to address the highest priorities?

We will address these questions in a panel discussion with Dr Adam Chee, Chairperson of HL7 Singapore, Dr Aung Myint Oo, Deputy Chief Medical Informatics Officer of Tan Tock Seng Hospital, and Mr Danny Van Kersschaver, Director of System Centre System Solutions for Dräger across Africa, Asia and Australia.
