“In parallel to my clinical practice, I have had the privilege of participating in several healthcare IT projects with very passionate colleagues from the National Heart Centre Singapore (NHCS), SingHealth and IHiS.
Some of the key systems that I had the privilege of leading include Cardiology Image and Information System (CIIMS), SingHealth Cluster ECG Management System, CVIS (Cardiovascular Information System) and the Cardiovascular CPOE Project. These systems enable the close-loop workflow for cardiovascular investigations as well as the digital distribution, and sharing of test images and reports. The recently completed SingHealth Cluster ECG Project, in particular, addresses an important gap in our quest for paper-lite EMR ecosystems.
Together with other enhancements in Sunrise Clinical Manager, these cardiovascular-related systems greatly improve patient care by making relevant information easily accessible. Much of this work were ‘backend’ labour with little glamour yet has tremendous impact on how we deliver improved care to our patients.”
