Licensing Experimentation and Adaptation Programme (LEAP) - A MOH Regulatory Sandbox

09 Oct 2019

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 to better understand new innovative services by partnering early with industry. This allows us to review an effective, efficient and appropriate way to support innovation, while delivering care that prioritises patient safety and welfare.


INTENT OF THE SANDBOX

To achieve this, the Sandbox works with a variety of care and business models so we have a full gamut of providers to better understand the emerging landscape. Providers not part of the sandbox, will still be invited to provide feedback on the future regulatory approach for that service, and are welcome to contact the Sandbox Team for queries (e.g. assessing your model, queries on sandbox providers).


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 known 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.

MOH takes a risk-based approach towards regulations. As such, the Ministry will focus on licensing Doctor-led tele-consultation and mobile medicine (house call) services that provide direct clinical care e.g. triage, history taking, diagnosis and treatment under the upcoming Healthcare Services Act (HCSA).

Today, both practices are permissible by any Singapore Medical Council (SMC) registered Doctor. Doctors undertaking these services should take reference from the SMC Ethical Code and Ethical Guidelines, and for Telemedicine, the National Telemedicine Guidelines (NTG) in planning and delivering care.
