9th – 11th September 2020, MaHTAS
As Malaysia pushes the possibility to become one of the world’s best healthcare providers, all local healthcare stakeholders must work together to outline key scenarios posed by global challenges to boost Malaysia’s healthcare delivery. In preparation of Malaysia’s RMK-12, MIGHT has recently tied up with the Malaysian Health Technology Assessment Section or MaHTAS. To this end, on the 9th of September, a scenario planning workshop was conducted to facilitate MaHTAS’ work on RMK-12 strategic plan development. In part, MaHTAS is a division under Malaysia’s Ministry of Health (MOH) that’s responsible for Malaysia’s health technology assessment. The division advises the government on various applications of health technologies and the establishment of clinical practice guidelines.
MIGHT, led by its Vice President, Mohd Nurul Azammi Mohd Nudri and Principal Analyst, Dr. Tan Shu Ying will work together to craft future scenarios to power MaHTAS’ 2025 action-plan. Further, the workshop aligned MaHTAS’ previous groundwork in view of Malaysia’s Future of Healthcare 2030 plan carried out in collaboration with the World Health Organisation, United Nations University, International Institute for Global Health and MOH. The strategy, an attempt to build more resilience into Malaysia’s healthcare industry will revolve around leading scenario planning methods in a bid to keep Malaysia safe and healthy.
