Integrated Health Information Systems (IHiS)
Ms. Jennifer Zhou, Director, CIO’s office, Jurong Health Services
Integrated Health Information Systems (IHiS) was recognised for their achievement of the HIMSS EMRAM Stage 7 award. Ng Teng Fong General Hospital (NTFGH), which is managed by Jurong Health in collaboration with IHiS, became the first hospital in Singapore achieve the HIMSS EMRAM Stage 7 award. It is also the first in ASEAN and only the fifth hospital in all of Asia-Pacific to reach Stage 7 of the prestigious certification.
There are eight stages (0-7) that measure a hospital’s implementation and utilisation of information technology applications. The final stage, Stage 7, represents an advanced patient record environment. The validation process to confirm a hospital has reached Stage 7 includes a site visit by an executive from HIMSS Analytics and former or current chief information officers to ensure an unbiased evaluation of the Stage 7 environments.
NTFGH’s technological transformation achieved many firsts in Singapore including the implementation of the most number of medical devices (976) interfaced directly into the EMR system and the achievement of a 4-Less Environment: Chartless, Scriptless, Filmless, and Paper-less.
