Hospitals share ideas on improving work efficiency

Six health-care clusters showcased how they tackled inefficiencies through innovations and best practices at an exhibition on Friday.

The occasion was the launch of the Healthcare Cluster Tripartite Workgroup at Khoo Teck Puat Hospital (KTPH).

Among the ideas was a linen trolley from KTPH. Previously, when a patient was discharged or needed a change of clothes, someone had to go to the linen room to get what was needed.

Now, every ward has a linen trolley containing everything from bedsheets to pyjamas.
