Reference Centre in Singapore

 

Siemens
Healthineers will establish its first-in-the-region, Asia Reference Centre at
the newly-launched MWH Medical Centre. The Centre will serve as a touch point
to other regional medical facilities and to introduce Siemens' latest medical
innovations and technology in Asia. This strategic partnership will pave its

"With
our strategic partnership with Siemens Healthineers, and in line with
Singapore's Smart Nation initiative, we want to digitise the healthcare
experience for both patient and caregiver by improving the speed and efficacy
in delivering care to patients. Doctors and patients alike will now be able to
access their medical information remotely via the MWH app, and patients will
now be able to participate in a tele-collaboration with experts from around the
world together with their consulting doctor, reducing the need to even leave
the country," he added.

rise of the digital economy has had a profound effect across industries,
eliciting varying degrees of adaptation. With one of the best healthcare
systems in Asia and the world, setting up Siemens Healthineers' first Asia
Reference Centre in Singapore together with MWH Medical was an amicable
decision to make. We are aligned in wanting to achieve the best outcome in
healthcare delivery, and with the support of MWH Medical we look forward to
