Pointwest joined HIMSCON PH 2021 with the theme, Challenging the Changing Times From Resiliency to Excellence, held on November 10, 11, and 12. Organized by the Healthcare Information Management Association of the Philippines (HIMAP) and co-presented by the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) of the Philippines, this year’s conference highlighted the dynamic play of global opportunities, local trends, and emerging challenges facing the sector. 

Pointwest leaders took part as moderators and panelists throughout the three-day conference besides serving as a sponsor.

President and CEO Rey Untal moderated the panel discussion on “A Global View on Outsourcing, Investing and Partnering with the Philippines.” He was also a panelist in the Day 2 CXO Forum: Challenging the Changing Times – From Resiliency to Excellence when Rey shared this advice to “keep in view the global and local trends and focus on a few high-impact priorities” to remain resilient and move towards excellence.

Beng Coronel, our Senior Advisor, moderated the panel discussion on “Global and Local Opportunities in the Emerging Markets – Health IT, RCM, Life Sciences, and Clinical Research”. Panelists from healthcare, property consulting, and BPO industries took up different opportunities seen in emerging markets.

Vladimir Manuel, Chief Growth Officer, moderated case study presentations on “Delivering Health IT projects and solutions to local and global companies”. The lively discussion centered on innovation, government regulations, and how companies such as Pointwest can speed up the large-scale adoption of new technologies.

Mac Aydinan, Head of Artificial Intelligence, talked about how AI plays in healthcare today in the panel discussion on Disruptive technologies in Health IT – AI and Automation. He shared AI uses in digital onboarding where AI will lift the information from the photographed IDs of patients and encode it into the system. He also shared natural language processing, enabling machines to understand what people are saying as used in voice and chatbots.

Juanloz Botor, Business Development Manager for Healthcare and Insurance, moderated Day 1 panel discussion on “Building a culture of confidence and excellence amidst the uncertainties in the global market” with the different Philippine Trade and Investment Center (PTIC) representatives from Asia, Europe, North America, and Latin America.
