Panelists speaking at MedTech Forum
Singapore - Well over 700 healthcare leaders gathered at the Suntec International Convention and Exhibition Centre in Singapore for the fourth annual Asia Pacific MedTech Forum, organised by the Asia Pacific Medical Technology Association (APACMed). APACMed is the regional trade association for the medical devices and in vitro diagnostics industry.
This year’s Forum was the largest and most diverse to date, bringing together global and regional leaders of medical device manufacturers along with senior hospital executives, policy-makers, regulators, government representatives and clinicians to exchange learnings and solutions to advance the sector for the benefits of patients in Asia.
A highlight of this year’s Forum was the announcement of MedTech Innovator Asia, a programme which aims to accelerate the growth of promising medical device, digital health and diagnostic start-ups in the region. MedTech Innovator is a non-profit accelerator that identifies start-ups through annual competitions and supports them through mentorship and funding. Connected with the same vision, APACMed will partner with MedTech Innovator to launch the first competition in Asia in 2019, combining the rich expertise of both platforms and expanding the network to connect more disrupters with investors.
