National EHR to be Mandatory in Singapore Health Facilities

Singapore’s health institutions will soon be required to contribute data to the country’s National Electronic Health Records (NEHR) as a vehicle to improve patient care. NEHR is a shared network between providers that aggregates and combines patient records. While close to all public healthcare institutions contribute patient data, only 3% of private healthcare providers do, creating a significant gap in the national data available. In addition, many general practitioners (GPs) have not gone digital, leading to less than 70 out of 1,6000 GPs who are able to contribute data.
