Presenting a New Healthcare Event Experience

The HIMSS Conference & Exhibition 2021 in Singapore (HIMSS21 in Singapore) will converge under the theme of Future-Proof Healthcare: The Emergence of Asia. Hear from a representation of speakers and thought leaders as they explore future-proof capabilities that have the potential to help organisations enhance quality of care and reduce costs by focusing on consumers, harnessing the power of technology, and bringing together solutions to be developed and implemented for a sustainable and resilient health ecosystem.

To be held from 18–19 May 2021 in Singapore, HIMSS21 in Singapore will be a hybrid event that encompasses both virtual and face-to-face engagement for participants as the world makes the transition to the new normal. Network with forward-thinking peers who are exploring future-proof capabilities for healthcare in APAC, and connect with healthcare solutions providers showcasing their latest products to transform health.
