Healthcare is a basic need of humans. However, it is one of the biggest challenges in Bangladesh and many developing countries, where many people are not getting good healthcare due to lack of infrastructure, systems and resources. On the other hand, healthcare is about to enter a period of rapid transformation by utilizing Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) technologies. Longevity and the advance of new technologies and discoveries – as well as innovative combinations of existing ones – are among the many factors pushing patient empowerment, which is fundamentally changing how we prevent, diagnose and cure diseases. Rapid growth of digital technology plays a big role in the healthcare system and helps to predict future health consequences and utilize preventive measures to protect it and improve quality of living. The Digital Health Ecosystem triggered by a fusion of technologies that is blurring the lines between the physical, digital and biological spheres. The potential for merging physical, digital and biological systems certainly has far-reaching potential for healthcare provision. The talk will discuss the way forward of building Digital Health Ecosystem towards Smart Bangladesh. It also discusses the implementation experience of Digital Health Inclusion that is transforming the healthcare landscape in Bangladesh using comprehensive multi-layered scalable digital healthcare platform by connecting people with health services, early diagnosis, health education & referrals for intervention to achieve Universal Health Coverage (UHC).
