CGH and TTSH Win HIMSS Elsevier Awards for Outstanding Achievement in Health IT

Changi General Hospital (CGH), Tan Tock Seng Hospital (TTSH) and Integrated Health Information Systems Pte Ltd (IHIS), the Health Ministry’s IT arm, recently won two HIMSS Elsevier awards for outstanding achievement in health IT. TTSH and IHiS clinched the Asia Pacific award for their SmartSense system which continuously monitors patients’ temperatures and wirelessly records their vital signs, while CGH and IHiS won the award for their medication management system which uses Quick Response (QR) codes.

TTSH is one of the first hospitals in Southeast Asia to continuously monitor its patients’ temperatures and wirelessly upload their vital signs data into its medical records system.

IHiS has rolled out the SmartSense system at all TTSH general wards to benefit over 1,400 patients daily. The SmartSense RFID tag attached to the patient continually records his temperature, so nurses no longer need to wake him to check his temperature. CGH’s Closed Loop Medication Management (CLMM) system with QR code uses IT to improve patient safety. At key points in the medication process, QR codes are used instead of conventional barcodes to match and verify the doctors’ prescriptions, drugs and patient data.
