Caring for you with the Next Generation Electronic Medical Record (NGEMR) System


Yishun Health will be joining other public healthcare institutions and switching to the Next Generation Electronic Medical Record (NGEMR) system on 25 February 2023.

The NGEMR system is an initiative by the Ministry of Health to put in place an advanced centralised medical record system for the Singapore population. It harmonises processes across the National Healthcare Group (NHG) and the National University Health System (NUHS) and improves care coordination for patients by integrating records and providing quicker, secured access to their latest medical information.

NGEMR also strengthens the hospitals’ ability to collate data and analyse trends, patterns and behaviours. This will help to design and drive sustainable models of care that will more effectively improve health, care and services for patients, their caregivers, and the community.

Our 5,000 staff from Khoo Teck Puat Hospital, Yishun Community Hospital and Admiralty Medical Centre have been diligently preparing for this transition, by practising, upskilling and familiarising themselves with the new system.

We look forward to delivering you an improved experience and appreciate your support and partnership on this exciting journey.
