Initiative/Program: Electronic Health Intelligence System

Overview: The SingHealth-IHiS Electronic Health lntelligence System (eHints) is Singapore’s analytic program that takes great volumes of operational, finance, and clinical data and uses the extract, transform, load approach to compile useful data from multiple healthcare transactional systems. The function of the program is to cleanse and consolidate data for healthcare professionals and allow them secure access without spending a great deal of human resources. This time savings and higher quality data allows for improved operational efficiency for healthcare providers, leading to more manageable timetables for care and less out-of-pocket expenses for patients.
