Nov 16, 2020
The Straits Times, Channel News Asia, and other national publications covered an Oliver Wyman report developed in collaboration with Lien Foundation, a Singapore-based philanthropic organization focused on eldercare. The report., Navigating a New Reality: COVID-19 challenges and opportunities for long-term care in Singapore, details the challenges long-term care providers have faced throughout the pandemic and recommends opportunities to fortify the sector going forward, with key focus on digital technology.
As written and quoted in the Straits Times:
In providing recommendations on how the sector can innovate and develop beyond the pandemic, Kitty Lee, Partner and Head of Health and Life Sciences for Asia Pacific, said: “We want to raise the conversation. There will never be progress or an impetus for something different if we don’t have a conversation around what happened and how we can make things better.”
