Digital Health Accelerator (DHA) is a new initiative hosted by DxD Hub, A*STAR, in partnership with the Ministry of Health, the 3 Health clusters – National Healthcare Group, National University Hospital Singapore and SingHealth, with support from Synapxe (previously known as IHiS) and Health Sciences Authority. 

Impact of Digital Health in Healthier SG

Digital health is a vital aspect of Singapore's Healthier SG initiative, utilizing technology to empower individuals, enhance preventive healthcare, and optimize care delivery. Embracing digital health transforms the nation's wellness landscape, fostering a healthier society and more efficient healthcare delivery. Telehealth, AI tools, and diagnostics are set to improve healthcare, making it convenient, cost-effective, and patient-centric. However, many innovations find it difficult to cross the chasm from ideation to commercialisation before funds run out. That’s where we come in.

Purpose of DHA

We strive to support innovators as they develop and drive adoption of clinically deployable digital health solutions in Singapore, leveraging on the synergy between public healthcare institutions, innovation, and venture-building partners in the Singapore’s healthcare ecosystem.

We aim to fast-track the development and launch of digital health solutions in Singapore. To drive adoption of innovation, enhance patient outcomes, and elevate healthcare delivery across the nation.
