Centre for Healthcare Innovation

The Centre for Healthcare Innovation (CHI) Co-Learning Network was launched in October 2016 and currently has thirty-seven (37) local and international partners from Academia, Strategic Agencies, Healthcare Clusters, Community Partners and Industry Knowledge Partners. Hosted by Tan Tock Seng Hospital, CHI has adopted the following three (3) strategic thrusts to drive healthcare innovation: Build Thought Leadership, Enable Workforce Transformation, and Effect Systems-Level Change.

The Network is founded on the concept of Co-Learning – the idea that we learn better together as a Community of Practice. We are an open learning platform, an ecosystem of value-enabling alliances. Through our network, like-minded local and overseas innovation partners will co-learn and collaborate by co-building thought leadership in healthcare innovation, co-transforming the workforce for our future, and co-developing new training and andragogy. We will meet current and future healthcare challenges through innovative and value-driven care delivery to the populations we serve.  

The CHI Co-Learning Network is enabled by our financial lever, the Ng Teng Fong Healthcare Innovation Programme that funds and supports healthcare innovation in collaboration with its partners through five (5) tracks – Strategic Training, Innovation, Community Enabling, Strategic Innovation and Strategic Research. The programme is managed by the TTSH Community Fund and CHI.

The Ng Teng Fong Centre for Healthcare Innovation is an exciting nine (9)-storey conference, training and innovation building that aims to transform our healthcare workforce to be future-ready. At twenty-five thousand (25,000) sqm, it is Singapore's largest purpose-built innovation centre with MICE facilities, simulation and innovation labs and engagement spaces.

Centre for Healthcare Innovation Start-up Enterprise Link

Centre for Healthcare Innovation Start-Up Enterprise Link (CHISEL) is a platform that provides a sandbox and marketplace that enables start-ups/small and medium enterprises (SMEs) to demonstrate proof-of-value (POV) of market ready or near market-ready solutions. It enables start-ups/SMEs to access real use cases and environments, demonstrate proof-of-value (POV) of market-ready or near market-ready solutions, and customise solutions suited for implementation within healthcare clusters in Singapore. Simultaneously, healthcare clusters are able to evaluate the operational feasibility of solutions prior to adoption or scale-up. The platform aims to bridge the market adoption gap, and allow patients early access to new and emerging healthcare innovations to meet healthcare gaps.

Partner Healthcare Clusters

Supported by

Ministry of Health 

Ministry of Health (MOH) is an innovative, people-centred organisation, committed to:

  • Medical excellence
  • The promotion of good health
  • The reduction of illness
  • Access to good and affordable healthcare for all Singaporeans, appropriate to their needs

Through MOH, the Government manages the public healthcare system to ensure that good and affordable basic medical services are available to all Singaporeans. We achieve this by providing subsidised medical services while promoting individual responsibility for the costs of healthcare services. While our population is encouraged to adopt a healthy lifestyle and take responsibility for their own health, safety nets are in place to ensure that no Singaporean is denied access to healthcare or turned away by public hospitals because of lack of money. The public healthcare delivery system is geographically structured as vertically integrated delivery networks: National Healthcare Group (NHG), National University Health System (NUHS) and Singapore Health Services (SHS). The work of MOH is implemented through its three main groups:

  • Policy and Corporate Group
  • Operational Groups
  • Professional Cluster

 MOH also licenses and regulates all healthcare establishments such as hospitals, nursing homes, clinical laboratories, medical and dental clinics.
