Digital transformation – Multiple tracks, one finish line

Mr. Nguyen Francis Tuan Anh, senior consultant on technology and solutions of VMED Group, talks about the topic “Journey to a digital future” at the ASEAN Young Entrepreneurs Carnival 2020

Mr. Nguyen Francis Tuan Anh, senior consultant on technology and solutions of VMED Group, talks about the topic “Journey to a digital future” at the ASEAN Young Entrepreneurs Carnival 2020
In 2020, as the Chairman of the ASEAN Young Entrepreneurs Council, the Vietnam Young Entrepreneurs Association decided to organize the ASEAN Young Entrepreneurs Carnival through the direct broadcast in Vietnam and online connection with the ASEAN Young Entrepreneurs Association. This year’s ASEAN Young Entrepreneurs Carnival has a very special meaning, demonstrating the creativity of ASEAN young entrepreneurs for the target of realizing the Vision of a “Cohesive and Responsive” ASEAN – overcoming difficulties, maintaining and developing.
Understanding “Digital – Digital Transformation” and world trends
Speaking at the conference, Mr. Nguyen Francis Tuan Anh said: “A digital breakthrough is the application of digital technology to increase the values for customers by conversion of markets, products or channels”. To do this, Mr. Nguyen Francis Tuan Anh gave three important factors: understanding customer views about digital breakthroughs, determining the financial resources for implementation and the ultimate goal of digital transformation is to increase value for customers. In addition, Mr. Tuan Anh showed three digital breakthrough models: breakthroughs of market, product and distribution channel.
Mr. Tuan Anh assessed that the market breakthrough has boomed over the years, including two types of markets: the asset-sharing economic model such as Airbnb, Homeaway, Zilok, Turo, etc and the worker-sharing economic model such as Grab, BE, Eatwith, Rover, Feastly, etc.
Regarding the product breakthrough through serviceization, this breakthrough occurs when companies use the internet to deliver content over software or to deliver content as a service. As such, software is the value of the product and the product becomes a service supply platform.
Regarding the distribution channel breakthrough, the business should eliminate middlemen or transform the channel structure to create better economy and superior customer experience. Specifically, it is necessary to eliminate middlemen with low added value; use logistics as a competitive advantage; and especially use customer data as a competitive advantage.
How should businesses operating in the health sector implement digital transformation?
It can be clearly seen that the digital breakthrough is forcing businesses to transform digitally by application of digital technologies into the company’s operations and interaction with customers to improve performance, create the superior customer experience and design innovative business models.
As a senior advisor on technology and solutions, Mr. Tuan Anh has co-operated with VMED Group in the digital transformation at businesses as well as community activities in the healthcare technology. Digital transformation in the healthcare technology has many difficulties and challenges due to the requirements of in-depth knowledge, difficulties in access and change of user habits. However, this is also a potential market when Vietnam’s healthcare infrastructure has been incomplete and under shortage of technological elements in management, medical examination and treatment.
VMED Group pioneers digital transformation through high-tech products, solutions and connection activities in the startup community.

Specifically, doctors at higher levels can directly monitor the patient’s survival indicators by high-tech equipment, correctly and comprehensively meeting the requirements of expertise in the examination, diagnosis and treatment for patients. Thanks to the “digital referral” technology, although the patients are being treated at the local hospital, they are still examined by doctors at the central level through the support of diagnosis and treatment. By this method, the patient will save referral costs and the risks during travel are reduced, especially in the situation of critical illness. In other words, people can get access to the good-quality health services from the upper and central levels at lower- level healthcare facilities at a much lower cost compared to referral. This is also one of the criteria stated by Minister Nguyen Manh Hung in his speech on the breakthrough development of digital transformation.
