Seminar Series: E-labelling - Connecting Patients through Technology

  • 21 May, 2018
  • 3:30pm - 5:00pm

Accessibility to accurate and reliable information is essential to healthcare professionals and patients for ensuring the safe and correct use of health products. A trend of providing electronic product information, or e-labelling, over the use of traditional printed labels is accelerating. This shift in improving accessibility to information opens up exciting possibilities for health literacy, but also raises concerns. The advent of the internet and social media has resulted in an explosion of alternative information sources, increasing the risk of accessing incorrect information, and potentially compromising the appropriate use of health products. CoRE welcomes you to join us for this seminar with Dr Shimon Yoshida on the potential for e-labelling in Asia and sharing initiatives from other parts of the world. Closing the seminar will be a panel discussion with representatives from the healthcare sector, regulatory authority and industry to further discuss the contemporary topic of e-labelling.

Seminar Series: Innovations to Improve Population Health

  • 17 April, 2018
  • 3:30pm - 5:00pm

Singapore’s rapidly ageing population and growing burden of chronic diseases have created a new imperative for population health improvement. These challenges open new opportunities for policymakers and providers to source and scale payment and delivery innovations to fill key needs. For example, initiatives such as the new Health IT Master Plan (HITMAP) highlight how the path towards population health will depend on the capacity to collect, share, analyse, and act upon health and social data. This talk will provide a global perspective on policy, payment, and delivery innovations that hold promise to improve health and healthcare, and opportunities in Singapore to incorporate global lessons to transform the health system toward population health.

Seminar Series: Real-World Evidence to Support Decision-Making for Medical Products - Updates from the U.S.

  • 28 February, 2018
  • 9:30am - 1:00pm

Data sources such as electronic health records and patient registries enable the development of real world evidence (RWE), which can inform decisions across the medical product lifecycle, including treatment decisions and those that impact care quality as well as payment and delivery. While the U.S. FDA has relied on RWE to support decision-making in specific contexts, there are further opportunities for RWE to further enhance the regulatory framework, especially regarding efficacy and benefit. CoRE invites you to join us for Professor Gregory Daniel’s seminar, which will: 1) provide an update on the current U.S. policy landscape with respect to RWE; 2) describe current efforts to support the enhanced development and use of RWE across a range of activities; and 3) stimulate discussion on how lessons from the U.S. context might inform existing efforts in Singapore.
