Can my genes predict the future probability of my developing diabetes?
Why is Hong Kong an innovation center for HealthTech Robotics in Asia?
Is there a simple way to manage my health records so that I don’t forget when to take my medication & I can coordinate my health care plan with my doctor?
At HealthTech Asia we will be answering these questions and showcasing how local technological innovation is changing the way healthcare is delivered.
8 HealthTech start-ups will be presenting and you can meet & mingle with them during the day at their booths.
Meet Some of the Speakers
Cadmon Lee (Gemvcare, Hong Kong Science Park), will demonstrate how years of research has resulted in a service that analyzes a persons genetic make up in order to predict and prevent diabetes. The results can be used by doctors to offer personalized care or by patients to proactively monitor their health index in a mobile app.
Dr. Corinna Ockenfeld (NISI, Cyberport), will present on robotics as an enabling technology and explain why Hong Kong is developing into a HealthTech robotics innovation hub.
Albert Au (Acesobee), will discuss how their electronic healthcare record platform can simplify and facilitate personal healthcare information management among patients, healthcare service providers and insurance companies. Such platforms become ever more important especially in light of the Governments push on e-health records between public and private hospitals.
Dr. N.T. Cheung (Chief Medical Informatics Officer, Hospital Authority) will give an overview of how IT innovation in the Hospital Authority will alter healthcare in Hong Kong. He will discuss how he has taken the HA from a virtual “green fields” site to today’s situation where clinical information systems have become ubiquitous and indispensable in the care delivery process.
Prof. Ronald Li (Novoheart, Hong Kong Science Park) will share with us the exciting work done in the field of stem cell research & regenerative medicine and will highlight how this will revolutionize drug delivery & may even lead to the development of a bioengineered heart.
Danny Yeung (Prenetics), serial entrepreneur, will give an overview of how genomics can be commercialized into a digital health platform that helps consumers lead healthier lives.
Andrew Young (Hong Kong Science & Technology Parks Corp.), will join our panel discussion on how Accelerators / Incubators add value and he will share with us news on their plans to develop a new Med-Tech Incubator.
Jonatha Krive (Civet Biosciences), will discussion the hot new topic of the micobiome. Want to know how the microbes in our body affect our immune system and why they are important to well being? Join us at HealthTech Asia 2017 to find out more.
