More Dynamic, Holistic, Interactive

The operative word for this event, as carried in its theme,  is “unusual”. After all, “…the healthcare delivery landscape has  evolved, patients have become more sophisticated while more options are now available to them,” according to Carmie de Leon, Healthway Medical’s vice-president for Sales and Marketing.

Thus, what was for a long time the traditional structure in healthcare has turned into one that is more dynamic, holistic and interactive. For instance, the patient-doctor relationship is becoming more engaging.

Speakers are expected to share insights into how individuals, corporations, and health institutions can adapt to these changes.
