Joint SAS-IAAHS Health Conference

The Joint SAS-IAAHS Health Conference, themed "Augmented Actuary - Think Global, Act Local" will be taking place on 20-21 September 2021. This is planned to be a hybrid conference, with local speakers/participants attending in person in Singapore and overseas speakers/participants joining us virtually.

We have put together a stellar line up of speakers, both locally and internationally, covering topics from AI Modelling in Healthcare (Keynote – Dr Ian Duncan), End-of-life, Genetics, Mental Health to Actuaries in InsurTech.

Of course, a health conference is not complete without understanding how COVID-19 has impacted us. With that in mind, we have planned 3 COVID-19 related sessions on Day 1 afternoon:

  • SAS COVID-19 working group will be sharing data analysis from the first COVID-19 wave in Singapore and probing into how the industry has fared and how we can gear up to pull through this prolonged pandemic, plus be ready for the next.
  • COVID-19 and the ORSA: The IAAHS COVID-19 working group will be sharing key considerations for health insurers engaging in an Own Risk and Solvency Assessment (ORSA) and drawing on experience from a number of markets to highlight key lessons for actuaries engaged in this area.
  • Impact of COVID-19 on Future Healthcare Utilisation Trends: Shirley Collie from Discovery Health will first segregate the COVID-19 disruptions from demand and supply in healthcare delivery of specific non-COVID categories of care and then provide a view on which components are likely to experience long term disruptions.

Other selected topics at a glance:

  • Panel on L.E.A.D.ing Health Insurance - Leadership and Execution using Actionable Data - Spenser Chen (RGA), Lydia Williamson (WTW), Keerti Sethia (AXA), Adrian Baskir (Bupa International), Tien Yung Lim (Healthway Medical)
  • Panel on Actuaries in InsurTech – Allan Wong (Coherent), Alex Leung (OneDegree), Iwan Juwono (GrabInsure)
