While this might be common news amongst the nursing and nursing informatics community in Singapore, it might be somewhat remote to the rest of the local healthcare informatics community given that it is still work-in-progress – HIMSS Asia Pacific is collaborating with Nanyang Polytechnic (NYP) in Singapore to set-up the NYP-HIMSS Center of Excellence for delivering quality healthcare through IT innovations here in Asia. (More information can be found here).
The focus of this Center of Excellence is on Nursing Informatics and I take great pride in sharing that I serve as the architect (solution, workflow, integration etc. ) for this initiative.
(Thanks to Steven Yeo for the opportunity to contribute)
Work pertaining to the COE has been taking place for about a year (from idea to concept etc.) and the good news is – the soft launch for the centre is scheduled for next week, on the 3 April at NYP.
I am actually quite excited about the soft launch because after that, we will be working on the solution for actual launch at HIMSS Asia Pacific’s Digital Healthcare Week 2013!
