Session 1: The Modern CIO – What Does It Take?

It is no secret that the CIO profile has become more prominent after the pandemic. They led the way in ensuring that technologies like telehealth would be indispensable, and in the aftermath of the pandemic, the CIO is now challenged to reposition their strategies through the approach of revolutionising and not reacting. Let’s hear from our thought leaders as they explore the role of the modern CIO.

Session 3: Enhanced Interoperability – Do we need Advance Data Systems?

Our thought leaders will share their experiences in building this digital connectivity between people and their care providers.
