Health Management International (HMI Group) and Siemens Healthineers have entered into a 5-year strategic partnership to advance healthcare delivery in Southeast Asia.
As part of this first-of-its-kind partnership in the region, HMI Group will invest over SGD 32 million to roll out innovative medical technologies and digitalisation platforms, enhance clinical education and further develop Centres of Excellence (CoEs) in the key clinical areas of cancer, neuroscience and cardiovascular diseases.
This investment is a key component of the HMI Group's ongoing expansion initiatives across StarMed Specialist Centre in Singapore and tertiary hospitals in Malaysia- Mahkota Medical Centre (Mahkota) in Melaka and Regency Specialist Hospital (Regency) in Johor.
Singapore's comprehensive ecosystem brings local and international players together to harness global trends of digital healthcare transformation and improving access to care.
HMI Group's prominence as a leading regional private healthcare services provider, coupled with Siemens Healthineers medtech expertise, together can contribute to a healthy society and healthcare ecosystem, enhancing Singapore's position as a regional healthcare and digital hub.
Development of CoEs will require growing specialist talents within the region. Subsequently, HMI Group is looking at recruiting and developing local talents in the fields of clinical, allied health and hospital management, to meet the ever-evolving demand of patient care.
Siemens Healthineers global consulting and clinical team, along with HMI Group will enhance the skills of this talent pool by training and knowledge transfer on the latest technologies and digital platforms.
