Tan Tock Seng Hospital, Changi General Hospital, and IHiS win Asia Pacific HIMSS Elsevier Award

Channel NewsAsia, news article (extract), October 22, 2013:

Tan Tock Seng Hospital, Changi General Hospital and IHiS — the Health Ministry’s IT arm — have clinched the Asia Pacific HIMSS Elsevier Award for using innovative techniques to improve patient care.

One technique employed by Tan Tock Seng is a bedside tablet which records a patient’s vital signs — such as blood pressure, oxygen levels and pulse — and uploads them wirelessly to the hospital’s medical records.
 

Another breakthrough technology is the use of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tags to track patients’ temperatures and locations in real time.
