MOHH (previously known as Health Corporation of Singapore) is the holding company of Singapore’s public healthcare assets. It operated largely as a dormant holding company until it was recently restructured to address systems-level gaps in our public healthcare system. MOHH today provides systems-level strategising and coordination and facilitates collaboration across clusters/healthcare institutions. In doing so, it enhances overall public healthcare system performance, while ensuring closer alignment to MOH’s vision, mission and priorities. Where possible, MOHH also seeks to leverage on synergies and economies of scale across the entire healthcare spectrum, thereby enhancing operational efficiency of the public healthcare sector in the long run.
MOHH currently undertakes strategic initiatives for MOH and the public healthcare institutions. These include:
- Common employment of junior doctors to ensure effective allocation and training of our medical manpower;
- Developing a national IT framework for Singapore’s public healthcare sector;
- Providing a system for joint recruitment of healthcare professionals for Singapore’s public healthcare institutions;
- Developing and operationalising a talent management and HR framework for the entire public healthcare spectrum;
- Optimising selected finance-related functions within the MOHH Group, such as central treasury;
- Providing corporate advisory and support to MOHH’s subsidiaries, and creating a corporate development system to support future organisational developments in the MOHH Group; and,
- Providing strategic and operational Board secretarial support for MOHH’s Group of entities.
The healthcare institutions within MOHH are divided into six broad clusters. They include National University Health System, National Healthcare Group, Singapore Health Services, Alexandra Health System, Jurong Health Services, and Eastern Health Alliance. Other subsidiaries include:
- Integrated Health Information Systems (IHIS), the consolidated entity of IT resources of the different restructured healthcare entities;
- Agency for Integrated Care (AIC), an independent corporate entity that was formed to look into the enhancement and integration of Singapore’s long-term care sector;
- Singapore Clinical Research Institute (SCRI), the research entity that will take on the role of supporting translational research in Singapore; and
- Health and Medical Practice Insurance (HMPI), a captive insurance entity that was formed to self insure MOHH and its subsidiaries against medical malpractice claims.
