Success Stories

We applaud the many KKH teams who have created and deployed their innovations in the hospital and beyond. These inventions are delivering better patient care, cost-effectiveness and staff satisfaction on a daily basis.

(a) Spirobooth for Paediatric Respiratory Spirometry: A novel, self-contained, purpose-built booth to allow spirometry to be performed safely with strict infectious control requirements. Leading to no disruption to patient care during COVID and post-COVID.

(b) Virtual Reality for Medical Training in Neurosurgery, Women’s Anaesthesia, Orthopedics and Nursing.

(c) 3D Printing for patient pre-operative preparation and patient education in paedetric Orthopedic, Dental, Plastics, Cardiology and Cranial reconstruction in KK. 3D models created are then printed out for planning or to educate patient’s on the objective of surgery.

(d) Telehealth at KKH

Telehealth at KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital (KKH) connects patients with their Healthcare Professionals via digital means, enabling patients to receive convenient and accessible healthcare wherever they are.

Using a digital device, such as a computer or smartphone, patients with select conditions are able to have a private and comprehensive teleconsultation with their Healthcare Professional, without having to physically visit the hospital.

(e) Robotic Process Automation (RPA): Automation of data extraction, cleaning and reporting reduced time taken by a Principal Embryologist to generate a report, by 80%. RPA will be expanded hospital-wide to support clinical productivity.
