Public disclosure of healthcare performance information and its application to the Singapore context



Public disclosure of healthcare performance information and its application to the Singapore context



Annals of the Academy of Medicine, Singapore 32(5): 676-684



The increasing worldwide trend towards publicly and actively disclosing healthcare provider performance information requires that healthcare professionals in Singapore understand the relevant issues and implications. The current evidence suggests that there needs to be caution in any related move here in Singapore, since the benefits have not been entirely established and the associated problems not inconsequential. This article identifies public accountability and the commercial need to demonstrate value as possibly the main drivers for local public disclosure. It concludes that a proper needs analysis and true stakeholder involvement are necessary in contemplating such an initiative locally.
