Lee Ah Mooi Old Age Home Wins National Health IT Excellence Award for Enhanced Care and Productivity

SINGAPORE, MAY 31, 2017– Singapore-based healthcare technology solutions provider Napier Healthcare Solutions’ premier long-term care customer, Lee Ah Mooi Old Age Home, has won a prestigious National Health IT Excellence Awards 2017 for the enhanced care and productivity gains it has made through the successful implementation and use of Napier Nursing Home Solution (NHS). The National Health IT Excellence Awards 2017 is an annual accolade that seeks to honour organisations and people who have delivered excellence in healthcare services through the strategic application of IT in their operations.

Lee Ah Mooi Old Age Home Administrator, Mr Then Kim Yuan, was presented the National Health IT Excellence Awards 2017 under Category F, IT Excellence: Digitised Care to Support One Healthcare System by Singapore Minister for Health Mr Gan Kim Yong in a ceremony at the National Health IT Summit 2017 in Singapore on Tuesday (May 30, 2017).

Lee Ah Mooi Old Age Home went ‘live’ with NHS in the middle of last year. That marked its transformation into a fully Digital Nursing Home that meets the Singapore Ministry of Health’s Enhanced Nursing Home Standards for intermediate and long-term care. It had become one of the very few nursing homes on such modern technology leveraging the benefits of Cloud and Mobility.

“We are indeed honoured, and I would like to thank the distinguished panel of judges who reviewed our initiative and awarded us the IT Excellence Award. I would also like to thank my staff at Lee Ah Mooi Old Age Home and our partner, Napier Healthcare Solutions, for all their hard work in making this system work for us,” said Mr Then. “NHS encourages greater efficiencies and facilitates decision-making. Since we launched the program, we achieved significant operational savings of 14.3 man-hours equivalent to S$178.75 per month per nurse on medication administration, and 46 man-hours per resident to process admission of referrals through integration with the national Integrated Referral Management System and ILTC Portal system. At the end of the day, improving our residents’ well-being is at the heart of what we do.”

“Congratulations to Mr Then for this richly deserved award,” said Mr Tirupathi Karthik, CEO of Napier Healthcare Solutions. “We are delighted that Lee Ah Mooi Old Age Home has derived substantial efficiency gains and an elevation of their care quality since implementing NHS. We also look forward to further collaboration between our two organisations as we extend NHS to operations at its second facility at Silat Avenue and continue to raise the standards of eldercare together for years to come.”
