Leading life insurer Pru Life UK held its PRUWise Webinar series last July 23 called ‘Healthscape PH’, a timely and insightful dialogue among key stakeholders from the Philippine healthcare sector, attended virtually by about 1,000 participants.
Present during the webinar series are panelists comprised representatives from Pru Life UK and its regional headquarters Prudential Corporation Asia, as well as industry partners from Babylon, a global healthcare organisation with a growing strong presence in Asia, the Department of Health (DOH) and leading telecommunications conglomerate PLDT Group.
Titled “Healthscape PH: Harnessing the Power of AI and Mobile Health in Transforming PH Healthcare,” the first webinar of this series discussed topics on mobile digital health (or mHealth), challenges post-COVID-19, and the behavioral shift towards digital healthcare, the role of public and private institutions in advancing mHealth in the country.
At the webinar, Prudential Corporation Asia Chief Health Officer Andrew Wong expounded on Prudential’s ambition for digital health and shared how the company is playing a more extensive preventive role alongside protection to address the growing health burden in Asia. Babylon’s Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Mobasher Butt, complemented the discussion by explaining what makes their technology the world’s first integrated medical AI platform and shared global examples of how healthcare systems can be transformed through a digital first healthcare delivery model.
DOH Director IV for Knowledge Management and Information Technology Service Dr. Enrique Tayag offered an overview of the future of the country’s health system, including a glimpse into DOH’s efforts in promoting mHealth as a powerful tool to help disseminate relevant health information and guidelines to the public, especially as part of COVID-19 response efforts.
First Vice President and Chief Information Security Officer Angel Redoble of PLDT Group, ePLDT and Smart discussed how the telecommunications industry can supplement digital health efforts with technology infrastructure and safeguarding user data. He shared his views on the readiness of Filipinos in using mHealth tools now that the National ID System is almost in place.
