Patients can choose to receive treatment at home (aka virtual ward) and be remotely monitored by the SGH@Home care team instead of staying in the hospital.
SGH@Home is a MOHT sandbox pilot for Mobile in-patient (MIC) Care at home launched in 2022. It is a novel In-patient care model that offers patients the option of receiving acute in-patient care in the comfort of their own home.
SGH@Home provides care for patients who are deemed suitable by the SGH@Home care team to receive inpatient care at home. Based on the patient’s condition, the attending doctor or MOH officer will initiate the referral to the SGH@Home care team. Patients are not able to self-enrol in the programme.
