19 Jun 2013 – Recently, Singapore organised the eGov Global Exchange 2013 forum that facilitated focused discussions on how infocomm technology provides governments with new possibilities and platforms for citizen engagement through Co-Creation with citizens and the private sector, so as to bring about better service delivery. As part of the conference, an exhibition showcased the progress and achievements of e-government initiatives by different government agencies. The event drew more than 50,000 international participants from governments, the industry and media from about 100 countries and regions across Europe, US, Asia and the Middle East.
The Trinidad & Tobago delegation led by Mr. Cornell Bukradee, Advisor to T&T’s Honourable Minister of Science & Technology also made visits to Singapore’s National Skin Centre (NSC) and novaHEALTH (Nova) office as part of their Singapore itinerary.
Comprising of senior officials from the Ministry as well as iGovTT, the delegates learned of innovations such as self-service kiosks and pharmacy automation that helped NSC improve patient waiting-times and safety. Of particular interest to our visitors was NSC’s notable achievement in getting doctors, nurses and paraclinicals to be an integral part of their IT transformation. The NSC system was implemented by novaHEALTH in 2004.
Following NSC’s visit, the delegation visited novHEALTH where they were briefed on Singapore’s healthcare delivery system and IT success stories.
In the evening, Nova jointly with Singapore’s Ambassador to the Caribbean Community (CARICOM), His Excellency Kemal Siddique hosted our T&T guests to dinner at the Singapore Cricket Club, an apt choice given our visitors’ affinity for and their triumphs in the sport.
