Deloitte teams up with IMH to establish predictive healthcare system

Combining data analytics with design thinking, predictive model sets to improve care management services for patients.

SINGAPORE, 27 March 2017 — The Deloitte Future Healthcare Centre of Excellence is proud to announce its collaboration with the Institute of Mental Health (IMH) to embark on a transformational innovation journey, combining data analytics with design thinking to develop a predictive model to improve care management and services to its patients.

Under this partnership, the Deloitte Future Healthcare Centre of Excellence – the dedicated research arm of the Life Sciences & Healthcare industry practice in Deloitte Singapore - will work alongside IMH with the objective of improving patients’ long-term continuity of care. This will be done by co-developing a predictive model to guide the behavioral monitoring of outpatients, with the aim of eliminating the common causes of missed appointments through targeted care interventions.

"Mental wellbeing is a vital aspect of overall health, and IMH is at the forefront of championing and managing this for the nation. The Deloitte Future Healthcare Centre of Excellence is privileged to partner IMH in this very meaningful initiative, to study and innovate better ways to manage mental health in the outpatient and community setting, through the smart use of predictive analytics, in turn to guide the design of services to improve the health of patients and the wider population” says Dr. Loke Wai Chiong, Deloitte Southeast Asia Healthcare Sector Leader and an Executive Director with Deloitte’s Risk Advisory practice.

Dr. Janson Yap, Deloitte Asia Pacific & Southeast Asia Risk Advisory Leader is glad that both IMH and Deloitte are collaborating to co-create solutions and generate rich insights for Singapore’s future healthcare. “We see this as an opportunity to position IMH as an Innovative hub for the region and the world. This is truly a demonstration of inclusive leadership."

"IMH is excited to start on this journey with Deloitte and looks forward to developing a methodology to help us analyse our data to better predict patient trends. This will enable us to be more responsive to their needs and improve care outcomes," said Associate Professor Chua Hong Choon, CEO IMH.

Demonstrating its continued commitment to be part of the innovation ecosystem and its vision to incubate solutions for sustainable healthcare delivery for the future, the Deloitte Future Healthcare Centre of Excellence will provide industry insights and expertise to co-develop tools and methodologies during this partnership, utilising the Centre’s “360° Model of Healthcare” to drive service design innovation. The transformational journey of the collaboration also sets its sights on being able to respond to the market and treat patients in an efficient and effective way, as well as to leverage technology and data to anticipate patients’ behavior.
