Innovation at Parkway Pantai

The Parkway Pantai Innovation Challenge 2019 returns for its second year and for the first time, the challenge is open to the public. Last year, our inaugural Innovation Challenge received over 150 submissions from employees across our hospitals, clinics and offices. As a result, more than 10 of these ideas are in the works for implementation.

The Innovation Office, which is behind this Innovation Challenge, has two mandates:
  1. To act as a corporate venture arm to invest strategically in healthcare startups with potential to grow
  2. Adopt innovation into the Integrated Healthcare System that Parkway Pantai runs.
