National Healthcare Group Open Innovation Challenge in Healthcare

Background / Description

The Open Innovation Challenge is jointly organized by National Healthcare Group (NHG) and Enterprise Singapore (ESG). The objective is to bring together Companies and Clinicians to co-develop products and services to address real world clinical needs.

We are looking for solutions to solve the diverse challenges in NHG institutions.
