City: Singapore

Initiative/Program: HealthHub

Overview: HealthHub is an online portal as well as a mobile application that is supposed to serve as a repository for all healthcare information and services available to the people of Singapore. This program is a part of Singapore’s Health IT Masterplan. The portal will allow caregivers to share patient records more easily and will grant users greater access to their own personal medical records including lab test results, immunization records, and future medical appointments. The overall idea of the portal is to give Singapore residents greater knowledge and access to their medical profiles, as well as to help them make healthier decisions for the good of themselves and the city.
