03 Oct 2018

Decoration
Launched in 2018 by Senior Minister of State for Health Dr Lam Pin Min, the Licensing Experimentation and Adaptation Programme (LEAP) is a regulatory sandbox initiative that allows the safe development of new and innovative healthcare models to be piloted in a controlled environment.

 

TELEMEDICINE AND MOBILE MEDICINE (HOUSE CALL) SERVICES


WHY
Telemedicine is set to become a key feature of Singapore’s healthcare landscape. Telemedicine offers greater convenience and improved accessibility to medical support and medication through new digital self-help options. Over the past few years, Singapore has seen a growth in the telemedicine sector, with public and private players emerging to offer a variety of services to patients.

Mobile Medicine, also know as house call services, has been a constant feature of our healthcare system. It provides greater accessibility for patients who, for a variety of reasons, are unable to attend a hospital or a clinic, by bringing medical Practitioners to their bedside. With our ageing population, mobile medicine services are expanding in both instance and scope.


HOW
MOH takes a risk-based approach towards regulations. As such, the Ministry will focus on regulating Medical Practitioner-led tele-consultation and mobile medicine (house call) services that provide direct clinical care  e.g. triage, history taking, diagnosis and treatment.

MOH will be inviting telemedicine and mobile medicine providers to participate in the regulatory sandbox. The sandbox encourages innovation but keeps patient safety and welfare as the paramount consideration. In addition, the MOH will work with providers to set clear boundary conditions, undertake clinical and data governance, and patient risk mitigation strategies.

For identification purposes, MOH sandbox providers will bear a Regulatory Sandbox logo, as follows:
