Dear fellow readers,
Firstly, my apologize for the ‘lack of activity’ at BinaryHealthCare, it has been a rather busy month.
For the unaware, (for my day job) I have moved on to a new area of Health Informatics – Primary Care and EMR (there are other segments but these two are the main areas of focus for now) and I spent the past month working on a RFP submission for a National wide project in Singapore – “Project CLEO“.
This particular segment of health informatics is pretty interesting as the role it plays when tied back to the “grand scheme of things” is quite important and I may say, crucial for success by serving as an enabler for other segments (I sense a need for a separate article on this topic).
Although I have previously been involved with EMR implementations (in the hospitals), I find that there are many interesting aspects of the CLEO Project that is worth ‘mulling over’ as the goals, scale of implementation (national wide) and the interconnecting systems (the National Electronic Health Record) makes it one of the most intensive and challenging projects ever yet (even on an international basis).
Sadly I am not at liberal to discuss any sensitive details due to an Non-Disclosure-Agreement (NDA) signed with the Ministry of Health Holdings (MOHH) but personally, I do hope that I’ll win the project (not just because of commercial factors) because I am confident that I can scale another new level with the primary care and EMR segment (just as I did for both Radiology and Cardiology Informatics).
Keeping my fingers crossed (wish me luck mates)
