How might we
empower everyone to
live a healthier life?
We want the best healthcare for all, but it must be accessible and affordable. This will continue to be an important driver of success for all countries. The potential of technology to prevent, diagnose and treat disease and improve our health and wellbeing is poised to enter a new phase of dramatic growth.
Advances in digital technology, including better video streaming and the miniaturisation of electronics, is changing the landscape in terms of disease prevention, diagnosis and treatment on a tremendous scale.
This helps ensure everyone – not just patients – is proactively, adequately and continually evaluated.
Smart use of technology and data will enable the deployment of more localised, even personalised solutions, only calling on the intervention of healthcare professionals when required. Ultimately, it is not just innovation in technology that will provide improved outcomes, but the business models that deliver the solutions.
We partner with and support these top organisations to create impact:
Healthcare Open Innovation Challenge
Enterprise Singapore, Ministry of Health, and National Health Innovation Centre, in collaboration with HMI, NHG, NUHS, SingHealth, and St Luke’s.
Innovation challenge for startups to collaborate with the three healthcare clusters and other institutions to improve processes and patient engagement, and form a seamless care continuum.
CATALYST-AA Innovation Programme
Medical Alumni Association, NUS, JUMPstart, and CATALYST
Programme to connect clinicians with other innovators to accelerate their Med/Health Tech ideas into a solution
CSIRO Precision Health
CSIRO and A*STAR
Workshop to connect researchers from both countries to collaborate on data-driven food innovation for positive health outcomes
We are curious about the impact the pandemic would have on the global healthcare sector and the consequent impact on the Southeast Asian ecosystem. This article will examine the role digitalisation has played in the healthcare space, specifically in relation to information sources, digital health experiences, and the role of data in a public health crisis.
