Jane Tan Sie Yong, Senior Medical Laboratory Scientist, Pathology - Histology/Cytology, SKH
When Jane was nominated to sit on the committee overseeing
the set-up of SKH’s Pathology Laboratory in 2012, she knew it would be no easy
task. She was responsible for planning the layout and workflow of the lab, as
well as the procuring of lab equipment.
With the help of her fellow committee members, they took on
their tasks with a like-minded “can-do” spirit, whether it was preparing the
documentation to pass the audit, or ensuring that the workflow of the lab
offered maximum efficiency and effectiveness.
The successful completion of the lab in 2018 paved the way
for more opportunities to leverage her experiences and expertise. Jane sat on committees for various projects, such as the setting up of
the Anatomical Pathology (AP) sub-specialty and the deployment of the
Laboratory Information System (LIS) in the labs, a cluster initiative where she
learnt more about other institutions’ processes and built rapport with her
colleagues from those institutions.
“Teamwork and collaboration was truly key in the completion
of the lab in time for the opening of Sengkang Hospital in 2018”, she said.
