The role of STEP is two-pronged. (1) to scan for relevant technology and solutions, and (2) to run pilots to evaluate selected technologies and solutions, with a view to scaling those which are beneficial, cost-effective and enable care redesign.
At MOHT, data and technology are one of our key enablers. Here, we carefully select and develop technological solutions to support the overall optimisation of the Singapore healthcare system. The technology and data team was set up to support the MOHT programme teams in exploring opportunities for technology insertions. One of the key areas of focus is using data analytics to inform potential areas of transformation.
