KUALA LUMPUR: The Ministry of Health is committed to supporting any new idea that will help transform the country’s health system for the well-being of citizens, especially in the endemic phase of Covid-19.
His Deputy Minister Datuk Dr Noor Azmi Ghazali (Photo) said the commitment goes hand-in-hand with the ministry’s goals of providing the best healthcare service and enabling Malaysians to live long and healthy lives.
“We must also adapt to the rapid change of the technological age by not fearing change but embracing it,” said at the opening of the second annual Future Hospital and Development 2022 forum here today.
Dr. Noor Azmi said that as the country’s economy has grown exponentially, it is time for the healthcare industry to translate this success into providing the best healthcare system to the citizens.
“We want to have an effective roadmap that will help us meet the needs of our nation and repair the damage caused by the pandemic which only happens once in a century.
“Therefore, we must fully exploit the synergy and coherence created by the relevant processes, as well as the alliances and collaborations these processes facilitate. Let’s all work together to create the most resilient healthcare system our country has ever seen,” he added.
Dr. Noor Azmi also described the forum, themed “The future is awakening, a revolution in healthcare ecosystems” and attended by 250 participants, as timely, knowing that people are now living in the wake of modernization and rapid urbanization and that the change should also be reflected in health systems.
“Healthcare functions as a main pillar for a future smart country, and we need to focus on how we can integrate our healthcare industry with the latest cutting-edge technologies available,” he said. declared. – Bernama
