Streamlining inpatient admission at Singapore General Hospital
Singapore General Hospital (SGH) is the first established and largest hospital in Singapore. In 2019, this not-for-profit was ranked third in Newsweek’s “World’s Best Hospitals” and is the largest hospital in the SingHealth group. However, managing limited resources poses a constant strain for hospitals around the world. SGH faced patient flow challenges from admission to discharge, pervasively affecting every step of a patient’s journey. Keeping its patients in mind, SGH leadership knew it was time for a change.
Amid a global pandemic, digital care transformation has never been more critical. SGH selected Altera’s Sunrise™ solution, more specifically Altera Patient Flow™, to efficiently manage beds, keep an eye on housekeeping tasks, prevent overcrowding problems and improve efficient and accurate bed assignments. Altera’s partnership with SGH came at just the right time, enabling the hospital to fully address its bed availability problems.
In this success story, you’ll learn more about how this partnership enabled SGH to reach new heights.
