Japan's handling of the COVID-19 outbreak has been challenging in spite of having a state of emergency order mandating people to stay home and non-essential businesses to close, as they are less restrictive in that there are no fines or penalties for those who do not comply. Nevertheless, there remains a concerted effort to incorporate digital technology in combating the outbreak, and Dr. Alessi will speak with Prof Tomohiro Kuroda, Director & CIO of Kyoto University Hospital; and Kazumi Nishikawa, Director of the Healthcare Industries Division of the Ministry of Economy Trade and Industry to understand how their respective organisations are leveraging on digital health technologies to deal with the societal and operational transformations caused by COVID-19.
