Project - VDO Project to Reduce Length of Stay (LOS) for Transcathether Aortic Valve Implantation (TAVI)

Using a Rapid Improvement Event (RIE) model to evaluate the issues, the team outlined interventions to streamline admission, early identification for post-surgery rehabilitation, check lists, fast-tacking for step down, and frailty assessment. The number of patients with LOS ≤7 days increased from 10% pre-RIE to 50% by February 2017 and increased to 71% in 2019. It was at 100% for consecutive months (May to July 2020). The mean cost per patient was reduced by 40% by 2020 from 2017.

Most Advanced Healthcare Technology

Project - Discovery AI (DAI) Platform for NUHS Cluster-wide Research

Launched in 2018, the DAI platform facilitates the hosting of secured centralised databases in accordance to MOH standards. DAI hosts a number of AI tools, including diagnosis prediction, disease progression and image analysis tools. It is also the hosting platform for ATLAS, an open source unified web interface that enables access to de-identified patient data and for aggregate analytics. Such dashboards support research and development by presenting unified data that might otherwise be fragmented and siloed across multiple databases. Researchers may easily query and access cluster-wide data in a secure environment on DAI.
