 Theme: Transforming Healthcare through ICT and Innovation towards Universal Health Coverage

 

Obtaining universal health coverage (UHC) has been widely embraced in Asia and the Pacific. UHC is essential to inclusive growth, health security, and sustainable economic development. To achieve UHC, more resources must be mobilized for the health sector, and they must be used more efficiently and effectively. Use of ICTs will lead to greater efficiencies in use of resources and greater efficiency in service delivery, a significant matter when the 2010 WHO World Health Report revealed that 20 to 40 per cent of all health spending was wasted due to inefficiencies. Investment in ICT has the potential to reform health systems extend services to underserved areas, and reduce waste and redundancy.

ICT is key enablers of achieving UHC. They not only are a tool for better patient management, they also serve to transform the health systems parameters in increasing efficiency and accountability. ICT has the potential of reducing health costs to families, improve equitable access to quality services, efficiently link health systems with social protection programs and increase accountability and sustainability in health service delivery.
