Healthcare

Launched on 8 November 2017, the Healthcare Industry Transformation Map (ITM) lays down strategies that support the ongoing shifts in the healthcare system towards promoting healthier lifestyles, moving care into the community instead of in acute hospitals, and having cost-effective, sustainable and accessible care. The Ministry of Health will work with unions, healthcare providers, healthcare professionals and academic and research institutions to operationalise the ITM. Areas that will be looked at include enhancing jobs and skills, raising productivity and encouraging innovation.
