ACCA Future of Work Roundtable: Manila, Philippines (22 SEP 2017)

The ACCA had exciting discussions at our Future of Work Roundtable, which was held at Seda Hotel BGC in the Philippines on 22 Sep 2017.

We had three speakers that formed the panel: Mr Andrew Charlton from AlphaBeta Australia; Mr Benedict Hernandez from Contact Center Association of the Philippines; and Mr Red Jacques Berhaldez from Globe.

Each panellist provided interesting insights on what they think the future of work might look like. Here's a couple of them:

  1. With more technology adopted at the workplace, two-thirds of employees will retain their job, while changing their tasks on the job.
  2. Technology also creates opportunities for new jobs. For example, a participant noted that his young son (under 12) had decided that he would go as "A YouTuber" for his career day at school.
  3. The government and private sector should be open to adapt to the latest technology at the workplace for increased efficiency and productivity.

Interview with Bernie Trudel on Healthcare in the Cloud

The healthcare industry in Asia is in somewhat of a dilemma: ageing populations and chronic diseases are resulting in higher revenues, but at the same time, governments are facing increasing pressures from citizens to reduce these higher costs. In addition, the industry is ripe for disruption, highlighted by the impressive growth of the healthtech start-up community in Q1 of 2017. Like the financial services industry, cloud computing is going to play an increasingly important role for the healthcare industry to achieves its goals. In fact, a recent IDC report predicts that healthcare will be one of the top 10 industries for cloud computing growth over the next 5 years.

HEALTHCARE CLOUD 2016

stethoscope

The use of cloud computing in healthcare has been core to a transformation of the healthcare industry. However, delivery of better patient management and care via electronic health records, personal wellness monitoring, and other cloud-enabled methods of patient care has raised concerns with regard to legal compliance and preserving the privacy of patients. Privacy, security, reliability, audit, limits on data use and data segregation are among the issues that surface when discussing cloud services for healthcare. To better understand these needs, and the opportunities for the adoption of cloud computing, the ACCA is bringing together in roundtable discussions experts from healthcare and cloud services to discuss the issues facing the Healthcare Industry that are perceived to be barriers to the adoption of cloud computing.
