In this month's edition of International Hospitals & Healthcare, we are bringing you an around the world summary of news and updates from global health providers including Cigna Europe’s findings on the importance of health and wellbeing for SMEs and a look at WHO’s first international report on artificial intelligence. Plus, which city has been crowned the most expensive in the world for expats? As well as a round-up of company appointments with announcements from Sedgwick, Aon and Chubb.
We take a closer look at the Australian healthcare and assistance provision for expats and how it’s been affected during the pandemic. There’s a bit of a focus on Australia this issue as we also take a detailed look at the rollout of digital health platforms for international patients down under. Like many countries, telemedicine has been embraced earlier than expected and it’s certainly made life easier during the Covid-19 crisis.
Arjan Toor, CEO of Cigna, shares his opinions on industry issues and tells us why he’s excited about Cigna Europe’s vision to improve healthcare for all. We also speak to Dr Charlie Easmon of Your Excellent Health Service, about his experience in the international healthcare sector and what it’s like to live a day in his shoes.
