Private sector sees huge opportunities in Asian healthcare
Asia’s rapidly growing economies and aging populations are too much for their healthcare systems to cope, presenting new chances for private-government tie-ups.
One example is Phillips Healthcare in the Philippines, which opened up a heart center in cooperation with government health authorities, and is able to analyze images sent from all over the country.
As average ages increase across Asia, a rise in heart disorders and infectious diseases could see this kind of partnership become more common; a move that would be welcomed by the industry.
