Supporting Singapore's Ageing Population with AI

With at least eight new nursing homes planned for the next five years as the ageing population grows – it is expected that by 2030 the 25% of citizens will be at least 65 years old- Singapore needs to find new ways to take care of elderlies.

The Ministry of Health has already partnered with Apple in 2020 to launch LumiHealth, a mobile app designed to encourage healthy behaviour and active lifestyle through gamification and wearable technology. After the success of 32 million workouts, the government plans to continue investing in preventive care with initiatives like the fall prevention program, and healthcare agencies are already on it: SATA CommHealth is working with DXC Technology on an AI-powered screening platform aimed at identifying high-risk seniors, suggesting them customized interventions, and monitoring their improvements.

DXC Technology is also working with the Department of Ophthalmology of the National University Hospital on a mobile app which allows users to screen, diagnose, and monitor cataracts without a doctor’s appointment. This way, technology can help with early detection, easier triage, and reduced overall healthcare costs.
