Singapore – NTT DATA Singapore (NTT DATA) has been appointed by the National Healthcare Group (NHG) to develop a Digital HealthApps Platform that supports NHG’s drive for population health in Central Singapore.
NHG’s River of Life population health framework entails a life-course approach and person-centred initiatives that support the health and well-being of individuals, taking into account distinct demographics and health status over their lifespan and healthcare costs. Tighter collaboration with providers and better integration of care that addresses prevention, early detection, illness care and coordination across settings are therefore paramount.
“There is much potential for patient empowerment and personalised care with the marrying of informatics and healthcare. The HealthApps Platform is an important step for NHG’s digital transformation journey as it enables patients and carers to make informed decisions to better manage their health. This complements physical engagement with care providers, and would lead to improved and sustained health outcomes for our population," says Professor Philip Choo, Group Chief Executive Officer, NHG.
In this initiative, NTT DATA and its alliance of partners (Medisys, Taggle, and Yoozoo) will collaborate with NHG in harnessing cloud, mobile, gamification and AI technologies to better engage the population and empower individuals to manage their own health and well-being more effectively.
Krishnappan Ramanathan, Managing Director of NTT DATA Singapore said, “Digitalisation is enabling the transformational change in the healthcare industry by reshaping the relationship between patients, healthcare professionals, and the health systems, as well as revolutionising the way care is delivered.
At NTT DATA, we aspire to be a trusted technology partner to healthcare organisations in their digital transformation journey, by harnessing Digital Health, AI, Analytics, and Intelligent Automation to improve the quality of care and productivity of the healthcare workforce.
We are privileged to be the partner for NHG in the HealthApps Platform initiative aimed at fostering holistic population health and wellness through digital technology. We look forward to more collaboration on this front in the near future.”
