KUALA LUMPUR, September 18, 2017 – With increased hyperconnectivity and medical technology that transcend beyond borders, travel and healthcare has become synonymous with internationalism. Patients looking for higher standards of treatment or cheaper alternatives can now admit themselves into medical institutions overseas thus getting the care they want and deserve. Where does Malaysia stand as a medical travel and healthcare destination and what is the landscape like for the next 5 to 10 years?
The upcoming InsigHT 2017, an initiative by Malaysia Healthcare Travel Council (MHTC), also known as Malaysia Healthcare, is a conference that aims to focus on providing an engaging platform for key medical travel players to discuss the rapid evolution of medical affairs – and share insights on how they are adapting fundamental processes and strategies.
The conference which will be held on September 26 and 27, 2017, at Connexion @ Vertical Hotel, Bangsar South, will cover in-depth case studies and expert discussions.
“The second edition of InsigHT 2017 will cover a broad spectrum of medical travel topics such as global outlook on medical travel, current landscape of medical travel in the region, and harnessing the digital content within the industry. It is an ideal avenue to bring together leaders from the medical travel ecosystem and create a networking opportunity. Attendees will also have a chance to be part of MHTC’s exclusive workshops during the conference, as well as consultation with MHTC experts,” says Chief Executive Officer of MHTC, Sherene Azli.
The conference will be officiated by the Minister of Health Malaysia, Datuk Seri Dr. S. Subramaniam, who will also be delivering the keynote address. InsigHT 2017 features distinguished panelists and speakers from as far as the UK and China such a Sherene Azli, CEO of MHTC, Dato’ Dr. Jacob Thomas, President of the Association of Private Hospitals of Malaysia (APHM), and Anwar Anis, Project Consultant TEHealthcare Asia, from Malaysia; Keith Pollard, Managing Editor of International Medical Travel Journal (IMTJ) from the UK; Dr. HM Goh, CEO of TransformHealth Asia, from China; and Lexi Fletcher, Strategic Planning Director of Ogilvy Commonhealth, and Varun Panjwani, CEO of Global Health & Travel, from Singapore.
