The hybrid event on November 8 - 9 was put on by the Vietnam Military - Civil Medicine Association, the Health Strategy and Policy Institute under the Vietnamese Ministry of Health (MoH), and the Iverson Health Innovation Research Institute at the Swinburne University of Technology of Australia.

In his remarks at the conference, Deputy Minister of Health Tran Van Thuan said digital transformation is a focal task of the health sector, which needs to prioritise resources for boosting information technology and digital transformation to improve specialised capacity, management effectiveness, and people’s access to medical services.
He emphasized the necessity for the engagement, resources, and wisdom of the entire health sector, people, and enterprises, as well as the cooperation and assistance from international partners.

The two-day event provided an opportunity for researchers and experts in the field of digital health and health care to come together to share policies, strategies, initiatives, and experiences in applying digital technologies in the health sector.

The event will also create greater opportunities for businesses to introduce Industry 4.0 technology products, data analysis systems, and artificial intelligence applications.
