Top international hospitals to hold summit in Asia to address efficiency, patient safety issues

Growing concern over patient safety is at the heart of every serious discussion among healthcare providers across Asia. According to World Health Organisation, "nearly one in ten patients is harmed while receiving health care in well-funded and technologically advanced hospital settings". In less sophisticated hospital settings, the rate could even be higher. Juxtapose this with the fact that hospitals are also mired in issues such as rising costs, inefficiencies and wastage and it's clear how big the problem is.

Meeting the challenges head on, top hospital managers, clinicians and health ministries will gather for the 3rd Annual Hospital Efficiency & Quality Asia Summit 2014 to be held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Produced in collaboration with Ministry of Health (MOH) Malaysia, and supported by Association of Pvt. Hospitals (Malaysia) the gathering aims to identify ways to improve efficiency, minimize wastage and manage costs while improving patient safety and healthcare outcomes.

One of the major themes that will likely dominate the discussion in this year's forum is how can hospitals expand their service offerings without compromising efficiency — and most importantly — safety. Answering that important question is the 'Holy Grail' in hospital administration and for this, a C-level panel discussion has been calendared to shed light on the issue. Sitting on this panel are top executives from Apollo Hospitals Group, Fortis Healthcare and Gleneagles Hospital.

The conference agenda will be complemented with content-rich and timely workshops on: Reducing Hospital Re-Admissions; Improving Processes to Shorten Treatment Times and Improving Bedside Care through Nurse Management. An exclusive site tour at Putrajaya Hospital has been arranged by conference organizers for delegates who will book early.
