To face the challenges posed in the line of health and care,
Alexandra Hospital provides multiple opportunities for staging innovative
solutions. These include a technology-enabled environment – involving the use
of data analytics and population segmentation and infrastructure, including
hospital design which is sustainable and home design which facilitates health,
as well as health district planning.
The strengths of the NUHS as an academic health system
will be harnessed. Capabilities in health informatics will be built. Five
academic centres of excellence have been set up and will support the clinical
enterprise. The NUHS Centres of Excellence (COEs) bring together an array of
expertise to develop and implement new models of care, incorporating smart
technologies and innovations in research and training to meet present and
future national healthcare needs.
• Centre for Chronic Disease
Prevention & Management
• Centre for Healthy Ageing
• Centre for Innovation in
• Centre for Health
• Mind Science Centre
In addition, to empower patients in their health
journey from the hospital and continuing into the community, automated
processes such as appointment reconciliation, self-registration, and queue
management are being explored.
Research and education
at Alexandra Hospital will be led by two Vice Chairmen of our Medical Board. Dr.
Dariusz Olszyna will develop medical education, shaping and structuring the way
medical staff are taught at the hospital. Dr. Amartya Mukhopadhyay, who also
serves as Chief Medical Informatics Officer, will drive the informatics
strategies and capability of the hospital in terms of research and evaluation,
to measure the success of Alexandra Hospital’s core clinic programmes. He will
also set up an academic informatics office at the hospital in the near future.
Alexandra Hospital will also be the site for piloting
patient-centric solutions with a view to enabling best practices to be scoped,
shared and scaled. It will be technology-enabled and will achieve seamless
integrated care for chronic diseases and healthy ageing, across the entire care
continuum and into the home, enabling continuity of care in the safety and
comfort of the home and community.
