Jingxi Tan, Vice President, Data First Program @ DBS Bank Ltd
Tan Jingxi is a participant in Unleash 2018 and part of a group working on solutions to provide healthcare access across the globe – some solutions they are exploring include providing health advice that is timely and accurate, with recommended actions to take based on self-identified symptoms; as well as innovative structures for healthcare financing, so people suffering from health issues can access affordable financial solutions for their medical bills. Jingxi works in DBS’ data transformation team, using data to identify behaviourial patterns and to design processes that can be invisibly interwoven into people’s daily lives. With a decade of working in technology, Jingxi believes that the key to an effective solution is to focus on behaviourial design rather than the tech solution itself. He also believes in solutions that are easily scalable – with the aim of reaching as many of those in need as possible.
