Title: Cooperative Service Management in Healthcare Sector: Emerging Trends and Future Challenges
Date: 19th October 2015 (Monday)
Time: 9.45AM – 12.00PM
Venue: NMES Lab, 1st Floor, Block B, Faculty of Engineering, Multimedia University (MMU), Cyberjaya.
Abstract: Network and Service Management have made rapid strides in many sectors of the economy, such as telecommunications and finance sectors. Thanks to the explicit support for cooperation within and across organizations, cooperative network and service management lead to better efficiency and better quality of services worldwide. There have been attempts by many groups to implement such benefits in the healthcare sector, the largest business sector in the world. However, this sector presents some unique challenges that have to be overcome if networked services have to succeed in this sector. These challenges include semantic interoperability, privacy enabled services and difficulties in the evaluation of such services.
This talk will present an overview of emerging trends and future challenges in this field based the presenter’s experience in the areas on integrated service management and e-Health through the leadership of a number of global initiatives, such as the WHO eHealth for Healthcare Delivery (eHCD) involving four countries, ITU-D Mobile e-Health initiative (m-Health) for developing countries and the global assessment of mobile mHealth involving twelve countries.
Biography: Pradeep Ray is a Professor of Information Systems at the Business School and the Director of the Asia Pacific ubiquitous Healthcare Research Centre (APuHC) at the UNSW-Australia. APuHC has been working on the assessment of mHealth (healthcare using mobile phones) in Bangladesh (and many other developing countries in Asia Pacific region) since 2005 and the work has been published as more than one hundred articles in top international journals and conferences. That led to the designation of APuHC as a WHO Collaborating Centre on eHealth in 2013 with a focus on mHealth (healthcare using mobile phones) for Aged Care. Pradeep leads a number of global initiatives with international bodies, such as WHO, European Union, ITU and IEEE. He is an IEEE Distinguished Lecturer of eHealth. He has been the founder of IEEE Healthcom, the premier international conference in eHealth that has been held in different cities in the world since 1999.
