Case Study

Delivering confidence in telemedicine services

The Ministry of Health (MOH) issued a “National Telemedicine Guidelines” in January 2015 to outline a holistic approach to execute the delivery of telemedicine services in Singapore to ensure both patient and provider safety. Under the guidelines, critical equipment, such as telemedicine equipment, is to be calibrated by accredited laboratories (accredited by Singapore Accreditation Council (SAC) or SAC Mutual Recognition Arrangement partners). Leveraging on accredited laboratories ensure measurements are traceable to the International System of Units (SI), minimizing any significant effect on the test results.
