Sphere Conferences opens second annual Patient Care Asia 2014

SINGAPORE - Sphere Conferences, the conference arm of Singapore Press Holdings Limited (SPH), opened the second annual healthcare conference Patient Care Asia 2014 on Monday.

The three-day event is held at the Suntec Singapore Convention & Exhibition Centre.

The conference, which will be attended by over 100 international senior healthcare professionals, is the platform for healthcare professionals to gather, network and exchange ideas on strategies, latest initiatives and best case practices across Asia and aims to propel the quality of patient care to new heights, SPH said in a press release.

Ms Patricia Cheong, General Manager of Sphere Conferences, said: "Population aging is occurring rapidly across Asia. The Singapore Government has rolled out the Pioneer Generation Package which focuses on healthcare benefits to the older Singaporeans. The need to improve elder care and geriatric care has taken on a new urgency especially with the growing aging population in Singapore. With engaging panel discussions and successful case studies including aging-in-place programs from Hong Kong, Patient Care Asia 2014 provides an excellent platform for healthcare service leaders to learn from others' best practices and collaborate in achieving quality patient-centered care."

The key issues discussed at the conference included:

- Patient-centered leadership and culture in healthcare

- eHealth and patient-centric devices in health management

- Patient experience management: People and processes

- Innovation in care delivery models
