Enabling Digital Health Adoption in the Asia-Pacific

A White Paper based on a virtual Digital Health Roundtable organised by the Duke-NUS Centre of Regulatory Excellence on the 18th and 19th of November 2020

In November 2020, the Centre of Regulatory Excellence (CoRE) at the Duke-NUS Medical School in Singapore convened a virtual two-day Roundtable on Digital Health in the Asia-Pacific to address and discuss issues in the context of evolving digital health regulation. Government, NGO, academic and industry stakeholders from countries in the region, primarily from Southeast Asia, participated in the event with different experts sharing their expertise on a variety of topics, including telemedicine, personalised and integrated care, capacity building, healthcare data policies, data security and cybersecurity, and digital health regulation. Three of these areas - healthcare data policies, data security and cybersecurity, and digital health regulation - were identified as key enablers of digital health adoption and discussed in more detail during the breakout sessions. In addition to information from the Roundtable, supplementary data from relevant literature has been integrated while preparing this White Paper.
