HIMSS Announces Cancellation of In-Person Component of HIMSS21 APAC

With the recent rise in COVID-19 cases in Singapore and an escalation of concerns about community transmission, HIMSS has made the decision to cancel the in-person component of HIMSS21 APAC Conference & Exhibition (HIMSS21 APAC), moving forward instead with a fully digital programme.

The safety and well-being of all delegates, exhibitors and staff is paramount, and HIMSS is committed to protecting our global community.

This year’s HIMSS21 APAC has been structured with a robust digital programme to ensure that everyone, anywhere, would be able to join in the reunion of the healthcare information technology community. The HIMSS21 APAC digital programme will stream live 18-19 October 2021, with a salient lineup of thought leader sessions and a virtual exhibition hall showcasing the latest innovations.

All HIMSS21 APAC physical passes grant access to the digital programme, and HIMSS will follow up shortly with more information on accessing the digital platform to ensure that all registrants receive the best HIMSS21APAC experience possible.

For any questions and clarifications, please do not hesitate to reach out to the team for assistance.

Presenting a New Healthcare Event Experience

Now in its 14th installation, the HIMSS21 APAC Conference will converge under the theme of Future-Proof Healthcare: The Emergence of Asia Pacific. Hear from speakers and thought leaders as they explore future-proof capabilities to help organisations enhance quality of care and reduce costs by focusing on consumers, harnessing the power of technology, and bringing together solutions to be developed and implemented for a sustainable and resilient health ecosystem.

To be held from 18–19 October 2021, the HIMSS21 APAC Conference & Exhibition will be held on a digital platform that allows you to network with forward-thinking peers who are exploring future-proof capabilities for healthcare in APAC, and connect with healthcare solutions providers showcasing their latest products to transform health.
