Efforts in this area include reviewing its performance data to optimise cost and resource base, operational excellence and continuous improvement initiatives which will enable KPJ Healthcare to invest in growth opportunities and deliver sustainable returns.

“We will focus on digital healthcare to provide the market with convenient access to superior healthcare, as well as venturing into providing new services and innovation such as precision medicine, and wellness, among others,” Mohd Shukrie said.
