Our Core Functions
CMTi actively reaches out to NHG clinicians to engage with them to better understand clinical needs. With an oversight of these clinical needs areas at a cluster level, and knowledge of our innovation partners' cutting-edge technologies and expertise, we are able to help create opportunities and facilitate meaningful collaborations to co-develop innovative solutions that address healthcare needs. To support our collaboration model and approach, CMTi continues to build its strategic network of innovation partners from industry, academia, research and government sectors to strengthen the innovation ecosystem.
NHG takes pride in its strong innovation culture and its collaborative approach with various partners. Some outcomes from these innovation and collaborative efforts have been successfully scaled up and translated into commercial products and services accessible to patients and healthcare service providers both locally and worldwide.
