BDMS, which owns and operates a large hospital network in the Asia-Pacific region, has enlisted the assistance of Plug and Play to help it build upon its patient care technology. Plug and Play is a platform that connects tech startups with large global corporations, enabling companies like BDMS to enhance its operations through the new technology available from the startup companies.
“We believe that a strong global network enables us to move forward more effectively. Plug and Play's global community helps open new doors to accelerate innovations to improve and add value to our products and services,” said Poramaporn Prasarttong-osoth, M.D, President of Bangkok Dusit Medical Services PCL., and CEO Group 1, Bangkok Hospital. “The excellent combination of advanced medical technology and digitalisation will bring substantial value to provide better care through state-of-the-art technology.”
Asia Pacific reinventing itself as a region for quality international healthcare?
Shawn Dehpanah, Executive Vice-President and Head of Corporate Innovation APAC of Plug and Play Tech Center, commented: “We are very excited to have BDMS join the Health track of our Thailand Smart Cities programme. The engagement of BDMS will provide them access to the best digital health startups in the world and give them visibility across industries.”
The more tech-driven healthcare solutions, the better at this point in time. Indeed, Generali Employee Benefits Network recently enhanced its offering by partnering with Sensely to provide virtual triage services to its global pool of members. What’s more, by enhancing its offering, BDMS looks like it is rallying to position itself as a leading provider of healthcare in the Asia-Pacific region; a region that has long been ramping up its quality healthcare offering.
