Changi General Hospital (CGH)
Changi General Hospital (CGH) serves the healthcare needs of the 750,000 residents of east Singapore. The hospital's Rehabilitative Services department provides a range of rehabilitation services to inpatients and outpatients.
"Outpatients CGH and the National University Hospital (NUH) face the shortest waiting times, on average, to see a specialist, For CGH, it would be for the cardiology specialist clinic”; according to a study by the Singapore Health Ministry.
CGH's move is part of an effort to detect earlier those infected with HIV, or human immunodeficiency virus, which causes Aids, or acquired immune deficiency syndrome. Its sister hospital, Singapore General Hospital, plans to follow suit early next year. Another hospital, KK Women's and Children's Hospital, has been routinely testing pregnant women for HIV since 2004.
CGH offers general and broad-based medical services and surgical packages for foreign patients. International Medical Services (IMS) team is committed to assisting you to ensure that you have a pleasant and comfortable visit. The latest programme administered by CGH is the six-month ITE Skills Certificate in Rehabilitation Therapy.
Using IT in hospitals is of course not new. Singapore has long used IT to improve internal operational efficiencies and service levels to patients. For example, hospitals have enterprise-wide systems to support patient management, patient accounting, financial management, and material management. They are introducing online ordering of laboratory tests and medication, and online transmission of test results.
