Health Services Research and Evaluation


Quadruple Aim Framework

SingHealth Regional Health System seeks the simultaneous improvement of the four dimensions under the Quadruple Aim Framework – population health, patient experience of care, per capita cost and overall satisfaction of healthcare providers.

Population health involves personal, behavioural and environmental factors affecting health outcomes, as well as the policies and interventions that link these factors.

The SingHealth Health Services and Research Evaluation (HSRE) team conducts and facilitates programme evaluation and population health research to determine trends and develop evidence-based solutions to improve current standards of care, cost effectiveness of treatment, and health outcomes. 

The programme evaluation process at SingHealth RHS is designed to help project stakeholders better understand the impact of these programmes on patient care, as well as to continually improve on the programmes to achieve better outcomes.

SingHealth PULSES Centre Grant

The SingHealth Population-based, Unified, Learning System for Enhanced and Sustainable Health (PULSES) Centre Grant is funded by the National Medical Research Council to build population health research capabilities and foster multidisciplinary collaborations to address the unmet healthcare needs of our population.

Research Themes

1) Population Segmentation

The local population is grouped by what kind of care they need as well as how often they might need it.

This segmentation serves to facilitate the efficient allocation of health services and resources to meet the needs of our rapidly ageing population.  

2) Integrating Care in the Community

This theme aims to understand the health and social ecosystem in Singapore by studying the SingHealth Regional Health System; and to develop, implement and evaluate innovative models of community-based care integration.

3)  Community Mobility

Frailty, sarcopenia, and mobility are common indicators of our ageing population's wellbeing.  

By studying the prevalence of these indicators in Singapore, we can better address comorbidity, disability, hospitalisations and mortality.
