This IDC report covers public health and social services initiatives and deployments across Asia/ Pacific, as part of Smart City—related projects. Urban public health is becoming more relevant at the onset of the pandemic. According to the United Nations, 68% of the world population is projected to live in urban areas by 2050 and this data emphasizes the need to prioritize the public health management by city/state governments.

"Various city/state and province/county authorities in Asia/Pacific are focusing on smart hospitals and innovative applications along with community inclusiveness. Together with tech adoption in care delivery, there must be efforts to make primary care centers smart or uplift the existing ones. Although digital health platforms help immensely in reaching redefined care approach to community level, even in remote areas, to ensure optimum inclusiveness and social impact, the approach needs to be a combination of both digital and physical," says Manoj Vallikkat, senior research manager, IDC Asia/Pacific Healthcare Insights.
