Healthcare Techsmall

 

Our research on this theme seeks to manage and assess the impact of healthcare information systems and technologies, providing guidance on how they can be designed, used and managed for better and more efficient outcomes. With healthcare being plagued by issues of quality, changing demographics, and rising costs, information technology (IT) has been recognized as an important enabling tool to provide a safer, more efficient, and patient-centric healthcare delivery system. Globally, investments in health IT (HIT) have grown in recent years. In Singapore, the National Electronic Health Record (NEHR) initiative to develop lifetime electronic health records for citizens is part of the Government’s vision to achieve “One Patient, One Health Record”. As healthcare is becoming more integrated and personalized, we are also examining the best ways to profile m-health application users and customize solutions for them. At the same time, investments are also being made towards developing new IT and analytic capabilities for better care coordination, decision making, and population health management. This has created immense opportunities as well as challenges, highlighting the need for rigorous research in this area.
