Fusionex Founder and Group CEO Dato’ Seri Ivan Teh has been appointed as a member of the Board of Studies for the Bachelor’s in Digital Health program at the International Medical University (IMU). With the appointment, Teh will be lending his expert knowledge and experience to further the growth and development of the program.
“I am deeply honored to be appointed member of the Board of Studies for the Bachelor’s in Digital Health program at IMU. The digital space for the healthcare industry is teeming with immense challenges & potential as vital insights need to be uncovered through the effective use of technology, to improve overall healthcare as well as to save countless lives which are at stake. IMU is an outstanding institution with a great, passionate team. I am committed and look forward to working with IMU, to contribute in any way or shape possible to help enhance the program,” said Teh.
The Digital Health Bachelor’s degree program prepares students for the healthcare technology industry, where they will be shaping the future of healthcare via innovative technologies. Through the application of Big Data Analytics, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning knowledge that students will garner through this program, these students will be able to design and develop better healthcare solutions such as digitalized platforms, clinical decision aids and hospital information systems, just to name a few.
Apart from this appointment, Fusionex and IMU have already collaborated on an initiative that saw the application of Big Data Analytics and Artificial Intelligence (AI) into IMU’s medical and health sciences programs. The aim of this initiative was to equip future healthcare providers with the right set of skills, techniques, insights and knowledge to take on various roles in healthcare upon graduation.
“Healthcare is evolving at such a rapid pace, and people are more cognizant of the importance of the industry, especially in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic outbreak. The future of healthcare is being disrupted with many question marks and uncertainties. We need to support the healthcare industry as best we can, as the challenges at hand are far greater than what a single party can shoulder alone. Traditional methods are no longer able to cope with the speed and proliferation that the industry is confronted with. By utilizing state-of-the-art technologies such as AI, Machine Learning, Big Data and the Internet of Things, healthcare providers can not only offer superior care, but also provide more accurate diagnosis and treatment measures based on insights, trend analysis and foresight. This ultimately leads to one thing: saving more lives,” said Teh.
