    SingHealth Integrated Care Symposium: Two schemes to help more seniors stay out of hospital

    At the inaugural SingHealth Integrated Care Symposium held yesterday, Senior Minister of State for Health Dr Amy Khor noted the positive results of SingHealth programmes that improve care in the community. An example is the Communities of Care programme, where SGH care teams work closely with community partners such as NTUC Health, Thye Hua Kwan Moral Charities and Tsao Foundation to improve post-discharge care for elderly patients with complex medical and social needs. With the integration of SingHealth and Eastern Health Alliance, this programme will be extended to the CGH and SKH Campuses. CGH’s Neighbours for Active Living, which matches trained volunteers to elderly residents living near them and keep a close eye on their well-being, will also be expanded from 18 to 30 constituencies. More elderly patients will benefit from out-of-hospital care due to the expansion of two schemes.
