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.
