SingEx Exhibitions and the Society of Rehabilitation Medicine (Singapore) (SRMS), co-organizes CAREhab – Singapore Rehabilitation Conference 2020, to value the well-being and safety of all delegates and attendees, speakers, exhibitors and partners amidst COVID-19 situation.

James Boey, Executive Director of SingEx Exhibitions, said: “CAREhab is a platform dedicated to Asia-Pacific’s healthcare community. We designed CAREhab GO in response to these community needs in the new environment: To provide busy healthcare professionals access to convenient learning, ongoing opportunities for collaboration and cross-sharing with one another, and further networking engagements with exhibitors and suppliers.
Customised learning on demand
Event delegates and attendees will have the opportunity to learn best practices from industry experts through a comprehensive library of live-streamed lectures, sandboxes, and showcases on the CAREhab GO platform. All sessions will be recorded and available for delegates and attendees to view on demand from 17 July 2020 to February 2021, an added benefit for healthcare professionals with convenient learning needs.
CAREhab GO’s artificial intelligence (AI)-built digital architecture will also help streamline learning priorities based on the indicated interests and fields of expertise, resulting in personalized dashboards for all participants. As with the physical event, doctors and nurses in Singapore remain eligible to earn CME (continuing medical education) and CPE (continuing professional education) points, respectively, at the digital edition of the CAREhab – Singapore Rehabilitation Conference 2020.
Enhanced Collaboration Opportunities
The unprecedented pandemic has shone the spotlight on the need for more industry collaboration and team-based care.
“COVID-19 has truly brought out the dedication, resourcefulness, and interconnectivity of Singapore’s healthcare community, including those of us in the rehabilitation sector. Besides stepping up to perform duties beyond our usual scope, such as carrying out community screening procedures, we have also adapted our rehabilitation care according to the new stringent infection control requirements. Despite the challenges, innovators among the community are pushing the boundaries by implementing telerehabilitation and other cutting edge technologies to continue providing care for our patients. In ensuring a resilient healthcare workforce, the organizers are elevating Singapore’s and Asia-Pacific’s healthcare standards, despite the current global crisis” concluded Organising Chairperson of the 6th Singapore Rehabilitation Conference, Adj. Asst. Prof. Geoffrey S Samuel, Consultant at the Department of Rehabilitation Medicine at Singapore General Hospital.
CAREhab GO, an online community platform allows industry professionals to exchange best practices pertinent to the care continuum.

Finally, the platform’s CAREhab Showcase feature will allow participants to witness the effective digital twinning of a physical exhibition where they can connect with a larger community of exhibitors, innovators and industry disruptors showcasing solutions designed to improve healthcare efficiency and daily practices – all via a safe, seamless and personalized experience.
