Share this article

Referring to Mr Ang Kok Chye’s letter (Do we need 3 different healthcare apps?, 27 Jan), Mr Alan Goh, Assistant Chief Executive and Chief of HealthHub at the Integrated Health Information Systems (IHiS) clarified that HealthHub is the national-level healthcare app and patients may opt to use cluster-specific apps if they feel that these apps are more customised to serve their needs.

This minimises duplication of effort and costs, and strictly adheres to stringent cyber security and personal data protection frameworks to safeguard users against cyber risks.
