Noting that innovation is key to overcoming the “iron triangle” of cost, accessibility and quality of healthcare, DPM Heng said that just as important as research and innovation is the translation of innovation into impact – which corresponded with the theme for this year’s CHI Innovate: “The Road from Innovation to Impact”.

  2. Innovation in the use of technology
  3. Fostering an innovative workplace culture
