According to World Health Organisation, noncommunicable diseases like diabetes, cancer, and respiratory diseases, are top killers in the South-East Asia Region, claiming an estimated 8.5 million lives annually. Digital health services could help the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) countries alleviate the challenges in their existing healthcare system and fulfil the rising demand for better healthcare services for their growing population and enables patients to prioritise their health conditions so that practitioners can ensure their patients’ wellbeing, anytime and from anywhere! Hitachi, through its collaborative creation with customers and partners, is working to realise a healthy and sustainable society through its pioneering Social Innovation Business model.
Health issues, poor healthcare infrastructure, and shortage of doctors are omnipresent; challenging times call for a robust digital infrastructure to enable better digital healthcare experiences. Ushering in healthcare innovation, creating a health start-up ecosystem, and building a strong IT infrastructure - all predict a dire need for Southeast Asia to adopt a sustainable digital health model – for generations to come.
Improving people's quality of life with sustainable solutions is always at the heart of Hitachi’s ethos. Hitachi’s smart healthcare solutions leverage the twin power of medical and technology innovation to help healthcare providers deliver affordable, value-based healthcare for patients.

Digital technologies are the key enabler of sustainable health systems and universal health coverage. While the global pandemic threatened healthcare systems worldwide, it has also been a catalyst for much-needed progress in digitisation by fostering increased adoption of technology and a complete rethink of how hospitals and healthcare centres may evolve.
Globally, the ‘hospital of the future’ is more than the brick-and-mortar setup - a network with flexible capacity and connected by a single digital infrastructure. While being in one physical location, it is also a connected network that is more scalable - flexible enough to deliver complex care to critical patients and provide regular and elective care simultaneously.
Healthcare Without Walls - Moving From Traditional to Digital Model
Aging population, rising demand for beds, demographic and economic changes are encouraging hospitals and governments to optimise inpatient and outpatient settings and integrate innovative digital technologies into traditional services to create a futuristic health system that is more independent and secured.
Digital services are disrupting the traditional/legacy model
Increased data and information enables active participation of patients in clinical decision making
Information exchange across systems
The most valuable resource when it comes to virtual meet between patients and healthcare providers
The Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) is reshaping economies and societies globally through unprecedented, rapid, and transformative changes to the way we live.
Healthcare levels vary greatly in ASEAN and the prevalence of communicable and chronic diseases along with the rising adding population calls for fast disease prevention systems and health care provision centres. Hence, the demand for robust healthcare systems to facilitate greater accessibility and regional cooperation.
