Trends and Attractions for Stakeholders

Singapore is facing a rapidly aging population just like Japan and China. This demographic shift has created a number of opportunities for the industry participants to provide products, training, and services to meet the needs of Singapore’s elderly and the healthcare institutions which support them. The increasing number of elderly citizens is expected to drive demand for residential ILTC facilities.
These community and acute care institutions provide service to fragile senior citizens who require care, treatment, supervision, and assistance with their daily activities. To address this, the government is in the process of significantly increasing the number of public nursing homes in Singapore. There has also been a notable increase in the number of beds at existing centers. However, land scarcity and high property costs will make it a challenge to build a significant amount of additional community or residential-based services going forward. The demand for home-based services in Singapore is also expected to rise in coming years, as senior residents prefer to live in their own homes among family members.

- Industry participants can also offer creative ideas to help develop innovative technological services and solutions for chronic disease management.
- As Singapore is working toward implementing remote patient care, the government has considered setting up a public–private partnership (PPP) platform for various stakeholders.
- On a separate note, industry participants can offer their technical know-how in eHealth and electronic medical record, by collaborating with the government, various health clusters, and
private or public entities.
- With state-of-the-art research facilities at Biopolis and Singapore Science Park, Singapore is also an attractive partner for R&D activities.
