SingHealth and SGInnovate partner to ramp up health science innovations

Artificial intelligence in healthcare will be the first area of focus.

SingHealth and SGInnovate announced a three-year partnership to build and scale up health science innovations on 9 November. Health Minister Ong Ye Kung witnessed the signing of the memorandum of understanding (MOU).  

The partnership seeks to advance the development and adoption of artificial intelligence (AI) and other emerging technologies to improve diagnostics and treatment and enhance healthcare delivery and clinical outcomes for Singapore and beyond.

"With the breadth and depth of SingHealth's clinical capabilities and patient data, we aim to synergise with SGInnovate's access to Deep Tech communities and resources to develop innovative solutions that improve care delivery and clinical outcomes. This new partnership will be strategic in equipping our healthcare innovators to advance AI in health and catalyse the process of translating novel ideas from bench to bedside," said SingHealth CEO Ivy Ng.

SGInnovate CEO Jim Lui added, "We've only glimpsed the full potential of the healthcare and biomedical breakthroughs emerging from research institutions and universities, and much more still needs to be done to translate this research into impactful solutions."

SGInnovate will also work closely with SingHealth to identify technically and clinically robust AI health initiatives and bridge them to strategic collaborators in the industry.
