We are pleased to announce that NUHS, together with St Luke’s Hospital and our Frontier Family Medicine Clinic, were awarded the overall Excellence Champion Medal at the National Healthcare Innovation and Productivity (HIP) Medals award ceremony.
The National HIP Medals was held on 8 November 2017 at the opening ceremony of FutureHealth 2017, an international conference organized by Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine (LKCMedicine), Centre for Healthcare Innovation (CHI) and NTU Institute for Health Technologies (NTU HealthTech).
The National HIP Medals are sponsored by the Ng Teng Fong Healthcare Innovation Programme (NTF HIP) managed by the Tan Tock Seng Hospital Community Fund and the Centre for Healthcare Innovation.
This award recognises the NUHS-SLH-Frontier team for offering seamless and better continuity of care to patients with chronic conditions (under the NUHS Patient Appointment Consolidation (PAC) programme). Preliminary analysis of the NUHS PAC programme has shown that patients with multiple chronic conditions enrolled in the PAC programme had 33% fewer visits to Specialist Outpatient Clinics (SOC) at the National University Hospital (NUH). For this group of patients, their hospital admissions and length of stay have also dropped by 53% each, and they also saved an estimated average of $492 each per year.
