SingTel Offers Managed Healthcare Management and Remote Monitoring Islandwide

Singapore General Hospital (SGH), Singapore Telecommunications Limited (SingTel), and HSAGlobal have piloted a new electronic health record and management system that makes patient data available to care providers.

The solution, which is fully managed and hosted by SingTel, allows healthcare providers, such as doctors and nurses, to track patients' progress from the time of admission through step-down facilities in the community.

CCMS is a solution developed by HSAGlobal (HSA) for integrated care management across multiple healthcare organizations to facilitate continuity and consistency of care, streamlining of clinical care processes, and case management in the healthcare continuum. This solution incorporates clinical management tools and business process applications founded on Wagner's Chronic Care model which is a proven clinical framework for managing care of chronic illness at both individual and population level.

The solution is offered through hosted Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model for a monthly subscription fee. The SaaS model eliminates the need for heavy upfront capital investments and high on-going maintenance costs, making it a very attractive proposition for both large and small healthcare providers.
