Towards Future Healthcare

Commemorating MOHT's 3rd Anniversary

ED Message

Message from the Executive Director

MOHT has come a long way in a relatively short time. When we started in 2018, we were tasked to look closely at the fundamental challenges facing our healthcare system, and find solutions to these challenges leveraging advances in data science, digital technologies and medicine.

We forged partnerships with both public and private organisations while maintaining strong links to the Ministry of Health and other government bodies.
With our partners, we launched initiatives such as the Integrated General Hospital model of care, the Primary-Tech Enhanced Care system for select chronic diseases, toolkits for communities and government bodies to promote healthier living, and online resources for mental wellness. Most recently we deployed many solutions in the national fight against COVID-19. Through these initiatives, we also helped build the enablers necessary for at scale adoption.

I would like to thank everyone who has been part of the MOHT journey so far, and we look forward to working together to make a transformative impact on our healthcare system.
