FREMONT, CA: While most healthcare executives in the Asia Pacific recognise the value of data more than their global counterparts, they are still encountering momentous challenges in using data effectively. Across APAC, there is high conviction in data usage, with most directors asserting to have extracted actionable understandings from available data, accessed data utilisation technologies, and authorized high data accuracy in their facilities.
When it comes to predictive analytics, several companies have embraced the technology while almost half are in the process of execution. Most use predictive analytics in clinical settings, recognizing its favourable impact on patient and staff experiences and health consequences. But there is still a need to improve APAC's usage of data, AI, and predictive analytics to facilitate future healthcare systems.
Around 30 to 40 per cent of APAC leaders share data with third-party organisations, use data for predictive analytics, collect and reserve data, and use it to automate processes. The primary challenge still remains using data effectively. Moreover, 55 per cent of executives still do not understand how to use data for decision-making.
Meanwhile, as more than a quarter of leaders are seeking to become socially accountable healthcare providers, predictive analytics is witnessed to help their goal, especially in decreasing health inequalities. The technology is also considered to sustain value-based care and lower the cost of care.
Recently in Indonesia, the Digital Transformation Office of the Ministry of Health created a health informatics curriculum to drive regional health workers to utilize data to improve care. They prompted to upskill health employees who have been mere input officers untrained to harness data. Meanwhile, the Indonesian government is presently testing the Indonesia Health Services digital platform to connect around 60,000 health centres, pharmacies, and laboratories across the nation.
