Since its inception in 2008, IHiS has pushed the boundaries in the digitisation of healthcare, architecting the national IT strategies and roadmaps for healthcare, connecting and analysing complex systems across Singapore’s health ecosystem. The seamless integration and sharing of data have dramatically improved productivity and enhanced patient safety and experience.
IHiS’s role as the National Release Centre includes distribution of SNOMED contents and management of Singapore Affiliates within Singapore. In addition, IHiS also develops the SNOMED Singapore extensions, which includes the Singapore Drug Dictionary and other clinical diagnosis.
As of January 2016, SNOMED CT is now being used across all public healthcare institutions that require the capture of clinical diagnoses.
