HSP Seminar (#294) “The Importance of Technology in Healthcare: Lessons learned from Thailand during the Covid-19 pandemic” (Jun. 12, 2022)
|Title||The Importance of Technology in Healthcare: Lessons learned from Thailand during the Covid-19 pandemic|
|Descriptions||This seminar mainly focuses on the use of technology to solve problems caused by the coronavirus. We hope to be able to share the experience of initiatives in Thailand with our earnest audience. We hope that private or government sectors in other countries could utilize the initiative cases in Thailand to adapt to the problems that occur in their own countries. The talk includes the use of a well-known application to manage the vaccination system, and the full-fledged service from the Thai start-up association to assist patient triage and quarantine delivery. This will help mitigate the influence of future crises and enhance promptly response to public needs during the emergency.
This online webinar will be held to share the experiences of speakers on how they implemented technology and helped solve pandemic problems as well as obstacles they faced in Thailand. At the end of the event, we will have the Q&A session which let the audience ask the guest speakers questions directly.
