    Healthcare system in the country must remain a strong base in order to produce a productive workforce and to ensure the prosperity of its people and the nation. This panel considers ways in which the private sector may enable support for the healthcare system in the country and opportunities for public-private collaboration in healthcare financing.

    With expanded use of predictive diagnostics tools, early detection of diseases will allow for earlier intervention and prevention of future complications. Data shows that all these put together will reduce the need for expensive interventions in the future, thus helping to better manage healthcare costs at institution, state and country level.
