Channel NewsAsia - Friday, February 6

SINGAPORE : The SingHealth cluster of public healthcare institutions in Singapore has established an online network to act as a one—stop information resource on flu pandemics.

Members of the PCC Network will be able to exchange information with health authorities.

Network members include general practitioner (GP) clinics and dental clinics located near the nine SingHealth polyclinics in the eastern part of Singapore.

A key objective of the PCC network is to implement the Ministry of Health’s flu pandemic plan, should there be a pandemic outbreak.

In addition, the website also provides useful medical resources for doctors, such as bird flu clinic notices, a drug identification guide for elderly and illiterate patients, a doctor’s clinical guidebook and a listing of GP clinics. — CNA /ls

Frankly speaking, singapore hospitals are very high tech and advanced now. I believe it's on par with other world class hospitals in the developed nations
