Singapore HealthTech Challenge looking solutions for 118 problems

Singapore's public healthcare system opened an annual National HealthTech Challenge this spring


The Challenge has collected 118 problem statements from the public healthcare institutions in March-April. Solution providers can offer their ideas until late June. Until that same deadline, organizers do their best to connect ideas and organizations.

The chosen ideas, and groups of 1-3 organizations behind the ideas, will proceed to final round. 1-2 ideas will be awarded with project funding to take the first implementation into practice. Meanwhile, everyone will have an opportunity for introducing their offering to wide audience during this whole process.
