3 technologies aiding healthcare players with staff shortages

Three in four healthcare leaders in Singapore are utilising technologies for short staffing problems.

Healthcare players in Singapore are utilising new technologies not just to improve efficiency, but to tackle staff shortages.

Data from a Royal Philips report showed that 75% of healthcare leaders in Singapore say they already use, or plan to use, digital health technology to reduce the impact of healthcare workforce shortages.

Healthcare players are using three key technologies to relieve the impact of staff shortages and these are: are cloud-based technology to support access to information from any location (53%), technology solutions that connect with out-of-hospital settings (40%), and workflow technology like digital health records and patient flow automation (33%).

The use of new technologies is also helping players attract talent. According to the report, younger healthcare professionals chose to work for healthcare facilities at the forefront of AI (39%).

Although healthcare leaders locally are less likely to be currently investing in AI technologies than their global counterparts (25% vs 59%), many of them (84%) plan to invest in the technology three years from now.

Healthcare professionals in Singapore are most likely to prefer to invest in AI to predict outcomes, with 45% of leaders and 39% of younger professionals favouring this functionality.

The next most popular choice is AI for clinical decision support (40% - leaders and 37% - younger professionals).
