BSD City, January 30, 2024 - The Executive Talks #3 program hosted by Digital Hub on January 30th, 2024, delved deeply into the future direction of healthcare data management under the theme, "The Outlook for Big Data in Healthcare." Distinguished professionals from Monash University, PT. Etana Biotechnologies Indonesia and Asa Ren came together to discuss the intersection of healthcare and digital technology.


During the event, various aspects of this intersection, such as big data analytics, the Internet of Things, artificial intelligence, and cybersecurity, were thoroughly examined, providing attendees with a comprehensive grasp of the ever-evolving healthcare landscape.


Dr. Henry Surendra, Ph.D., Associate Professor and Course Coordinator of the Master of Public Health program at Monash University, Indonesia, presented "Possible Functions of Big Data Analytics in Public Health." He underscored the significant opportunities presented by utilizing big data to advance healthcare results, enhance patient care, and support decision-making based on empirical evidence.


Mr. Mulyawan Gani, Managing Director of Digital Business at Sinar Mas Land, expressed, "Considering BSD City's developmental trajectory, it is logical for us to prioritize healthcare. BSD City has a demonstrated history of cultivating ecosystems. We accommodate over 110 schools and universities, while our Digital Hub hosts over 100 digital and technology companies that proudly operate within BSD City. We are establishing a healthcare cluster, positioning BSD City as a pioneer in offering integrated clusters of medical facilities/services, education, and digital technology."
