Making a Lasting Impact in Long Term Care in Asia Pacific: Napier Healthcare at AAIF 2018

Napier Healthcare made a splash at the 9th Ageing Asia Innovation Forum 2018 (AAIF 2018) recently (May 14-17, 2018). Napierites were right in the thick of AAIF 2018 activities from May 14, with our sponsorship of the Ageing Asia Alliance Singapore Experience Night (Prive at the Asian Civilisations Museum, right next to the Singapore River). There we presented the first ever Napier Digital Pioneer Award to our premier customer in Australia, Marta Terraciano, CEO of Residential Gardens for Spanish Speaking Frail Aged in Rooty Hill, New South Wales. We also launched our Napier Industry Partner Program, which was kicked off with a call to eldercare providers to pilot Napier’s AI-powered long-term care solutions. Find out more about it here.

Napierites in Singapore for AAIF 2018 (at the Marina Bay Sands Convention Centre) started off May 15 bright and early by getting the Napier exhibitor lounge ready to host the event’s guest-of-honour, Dr Amy Khor, Singapore’s Senior Minister of State, Ministry of Health and Ministry of Environment and Water Resources.

For the next two days, they initiated and followed through on discussions with the up to 300 delegates who walked by our lounge. Visiting delegates were engaged on what their needs were for the coming year and what technology can do to help them meet their various challenges and achieve their objectives.
