Under the Patronage of the Capital Market Authority of the Sultanate of Oman, for the first time in 11 years, Middle East Insurance Review is bringing the Middle East Healthcare Insurance Conference to Muscat where they are exploring the option of compulsory health insurance.
With the challenging geopolitical times internationally and regionally, within each market, there are increasing demands on the insurance industry domestically. Healthcare is one such critical area as governments seek to make individuals more responsible for their own well-being and insurance is seen as part of a solution to offer comprehensive health coverage for all citizens.
While these spell tremendous opportunities for insurance companies, it also means that governments have to raise the bar for standards of healthcare service and health insurance to meet the needs and expectations of the public and policyholders.
What are the critical dynamics of a successful healthcare system? What are the key drivers of the business? How can healthcare be digitized and data collated set to be meaningful? Can TPAs make an impact? What more can government and the insurance industry do to collaborate to ensure greater efficiency and higher standards in the way forward? What are the strategic tips to establishing a compulsory insurance? How can technology be used to leap frogs the problems of yore and ensure a system that meets all expectations?
The two-day 11th Middle East Healthcare Insurance Conference, organised by Middle East Insurance Review, aims to address these real issues and challenges in moving forward with compulsory insurance and comprehensive covers. The Conference will look at the progress of compulsory health insurance in Oman and around the region; global medical trends and developments; underwriting issues, claims management; and the use of innovative business models, distribution networks, Insurtech, Internet of Things (IoT), data science, medical advancements and new technologies.
