     Pre- and Post-Congress Workshops










One of the nice features of this congress is the interprofessional participation. The sessions bring together all members of the team such as the physicians, nurses and therapists, which is really how it works in healthcare as well.

The new era of healthcare ushered in by wide adoption of intelligent technologies has been rapidly changing. Artificial intelligence, smart sensors and Internet of Things (IoT) are among the most active and emerging trends in revolutionising traditional healthcare systems. Technologies such as high performance processors, surgical robots, and wearable body sensor networks have enabled us to turn dreams into reality. We are witnessing how advances in technologies are being leveraged, by the healthcare sector to create smart health systems, and by the government to foster the deployment of a smart city. This talk aims to bring the audience the latest development in smart health, where emerging intelligent technologies are adopted and implemented. In addition, to reviewing the state-of-the-art, this talk also presents the audience with several examples in SingHealth on how smart technologies impact patient care.
