What it is
- Digital MC system. Instead of paper, patients receive a link to an official MC hosted at mc.gov.sg.
Why it’s useful
Enabler for teleconsultations - clinics/hospitals are moving towards virtual consultations to reduce the need for physical visits.
If our social distancing measures are working, then in addition to COVID cases we should be seeing a general downwards trend in normal illness spread as well. A central digital MC system provides a simple way to monitor the overall population’s health. Dashboards and alerts can be set up to track flu/fever/cough/cold trends and highlight specific patterns.
