When Singapore’s Ministry of Health (MOH) set out to create the National Electronic Health Record (NEHR), they had a goal to improve the quality of healthcare for all patients by increasing patient safety, lowering healthcare costs, and developing more effective health policies. In 2009, Accenture started working with Singapore’s Integrated Health Information Systems (IHiS)¹ to make the NEHR a reality. Since it went live in 2011, the system has been helping clinicians provide the right information to patients at the right time.
Further, it helps to eliminate duplicate tests, provides a consolidated view of medical episodes in public institutions, and is used to analyse health trends for the better management of diseases. This has transformed the way healthcare is being delivered in Singapore.
