 Deputy Minister of Health Y.B. Datuk Rosnah Shirlin binti Haji Abdul Rashid Shirlin delivering the keynote address  Asia's leading conference for healthcare operations and maintenance ended with a bang. Asia Healthcare Operations Summit took place last March 22 to 24, 2011, at the Parkroyal Hotel, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The conference, in its second year, has managed to attract more than 50 organisations with over 100 attendees. The summit had the privilege of having the Ministry of Health, Malaysia to be on-board as an endorser for the second time.
In helping healthcare practitioners stay in touch with the latest technology, Asia Healthcare Operations Summit delivered the utmost satisfaction to the attendees. This round, the topics such as effective patient and process flow management, medical information and records management, discharge management, quality management and patient safety, managing human assets, performance measurement, facilities management and maintenance, medication management and safety, and medical tourism were covered and delivered in a series of case study presentations, panel discussions, and streamed sessions. It catered to the public and private sector healthcare throughout the fast-paced and power-packed 3-day event.
Asia Healthcare Operations Summit featured an eminent panel of speakers, including Prof. Philip Choo (CEO, Tan Tock Seng Hospital, Singapore), Dato' Dr. Chan Kok Ewe (Director, Island Hospital, Malaysia), and Prof. Teo Eng Kiong (Deputy Chairman Medical Board and Chief of Gastroenterology, Changi General Hospital, Singapore).
According to Project Manager Sangeetha Silvaratnam, "healthcare operations management has become a major topic for healthcare professionals and service providers. Ensuring effective operations and productivity in hospitals is crucial for efficient delivery of healthcare services. There are many huge general healthcare events being organised in countries like Singapore, India, and Hong Kong, but there are very few that focus on just healthcare operations. This is what makes our events different from the rest out there. New topics such as patient flow management and clinical capacity planning will also be discussed in next year's event. We have also incorporated a 1-day intensive workshop on Evidence- Based Practices for Chief Nursing Officers and Chief Matrons."
The event was officiated by Y.B. Datuk Rosnah Shirlin binti Haji Abdul Rashid Shirlin, Deputy Minister of Health, Malaysia.
