Health kiosks reduce unnecessary visits to the doctors.
SingHealth Polyclinics and Eastern Health Alliance launches MyHealth Kiosk for chronic-disease patients to monitor their health.
Located at Bedok Polyclinic and and Thye Hua Kwan Moral Charities Bedok Radiance Senior Activity Centre, the kiosks allow patients to assess their health without queueing to see a doctor. If their condition is stable, patients can collect their medication from the pharmacy right after visiting the kiosk. If deemed unfit, the patients will be refered to a doctor or nurse.
The kiosks were officially launched yesterday, after a trial involving more than 200 patients. Four more kiosks at various locations will be launched in the next six months.
