The Open Innovation Platform (OIP), an initiative by the Info-Communications Media Development Authority of Singapore (IMDA), aims to connect real business challenges to problem solvers.
HealthHub is a Smart Nation initiative helmed by Ministry of Health and Health Promotion Board (HPB) in Singapore. It is a one-stop portal (www.healthhub.sg) and mobile app for Singaporeans to access a wide range of health contents, rewards and e-services. It is designed to empower the population/general public to take greater ownership of their health and wellness through the online access of personalised health records, better health literacy and adoption of healthy lifestyle practices.
The mission of HealthHub are:
a) Improve Health Literacy: HealthHub provides a single point of access to trusted, concise and useful health information. This helps to improve health literacy and empower the public to better manage their health and navigate the healthcare system.
b) Empower Individuals towards Self-Directed Care/Care for Their Loved Ones: HealthHub provides the public with secure, personalised and contextualised health information and tools. Users have convenient access to their own health information and are able to monitor and manage their personal health easily through self-management tools. This empowers the public to take ownership of their health and also support caregivers in looking after their dependents when they are granted access to the health information of their dependents and to transact with public healthcare institutions.
c) Help Users Navigate Complex Public Health Services. Regardless of Provider: HealthHub adopts a citizen-centric approach and helps the public navigate the complex Healthcare System, as they consume services from different health clusters. HealthHub provides administrative information such as the directory of services offered by the various healthcare institutions, hospital fees, health financing schemes, waiting times at A&E departments. The portal will also enable users to transact with public healthcare institutions such as appointment scheduling and payment of bills.
How might we develop a smart self-help enquiry system for HealthHub to better engage users across a range of products and services, help them to understand their health conditions, and recommend them appropriate content, programmes or healthcare providers expeditiously?

Some of these include Info-Comm and Media (ICM) start-ups, SMEs and larger companies. Problem Solvers should have the ability and desire to co-create and innovate with Problem Owners or/and other partners to translate their ideas into solutions that can address real business needs.
There are no restrictions on the geographic location of the problem solvers who may choose to apply to this challenge. However, the prototype needs to be demonstrated in Singapore. Global applicants must be prepared to bear the additional cost of travel.
