Innovation: Path to the New World of Healthcare Management

Innovation is the order of the day across the world. The mushrooming of new business models in the healthcare field has ushered in the era of smart healthcare based on big data and cloud computing. China has emerged as a global destination for innovation; technological innovation is a primary driver for global economic growth. Precision medicine, including genetic sequencing, is gathering momentum. Biogenetics, wearable devices, telemedicine and artificial intelligence are creating a blue ocean in the healthcare industry, which is tipped as the most likely incubator for tech giants. Meanwhile, technological innovation is reshaping business models. In the next few years, the healthcare industry will witness the explosion of new business models. Mobile healthcare is going digital. Considering their growing application in precision medicine and computer-aided diagnosis, big data technology and artificial intelligence have become the darlings of the capital market.

Complementary strengths between the two countries can deliver a boost to cooperation in innovation. With an efficient medical service system and a well-established aging care industry, Switzerland has long been at the forefront of the global healthcare industry. The cooperation between China and Switzerland in healthcare goes back a long way. Nowadays, both sides are carrying out a health cooperation plan in the third round. By virtue of technological advancement and inflow of capital into the healthcare industry, the two countries will have significant scope for cooperation, whether in health products and basic research or e-health, genetic test, anti-aging, and biotechnology.

The Forum will focus on the following questions: As far as the development of the healthcare industry is concerned, how does China differ from Switzerland? Considering China’s vast healthcare market, what opportunities will likely be opened up for healthcare technology companies? How will China and Switzerland supplement each other in the healthcare industry? How will the two countries join hands to boost the development of the healthcare industry through mutual investment and technological cooperation? Over 50 innovative entrepreneurs in China’s healthcare industry have signed up for Smart Healthcare Startup Programme offered by CEIBS, a top business school in Asia. At this forum, they will share technological innovation and new business models in China’s healthcare industry and exchange ideas with Swiss medical entrepreneurs about the basis of and prospects for innovation and cooperation in the healthcare industry between the two countries.
