This webinar is approved for 1 continuing education (CE) hour for use in fulfilling the continuing education requirements of the Certified Professional in Healthcare Information & Management Systems (CPHIMS) and the Certified Associate in Healthcare Information & Management Systems (CAHIMS).
Healthcare systems around the world are struggling with rising costs – the increase in healthcare spending is neither sustainable nor does it translate to better outcomes for patients. To achieve the best outcomes at the lowest cost for our population, value based care replaces today’s fragmented healthcare system by moving away from a supply driven system to a patient centered system.
At the National Cancer Center Singapore, Dr. Joanne Ngeow is using value based care concepts to improve the organization of her practice and strengthen the case for obtaining government funding. She will share the work her team has done using quality improvement methods and time-driven activity-based costing to improve delivery of care in a cancer genetics clinic, with the aim of widening access while reducing the cost of care. In this webinar, Dr. Joanne Ngeow will share findings from her study, showing the impact of value based cancer care delivery in cancer genetics.
Join this webinar to learn about: 1. Showing value and benefits for support and funding 2. Increasing value to healthcare organizations and patients without increasing costs and worsening patient outcomes 3. Benefits of value based, high quality interventions 4. Providing sustainable value to patients and healthcare organizations
About the Speaker:
Dr Ngeow currently leads the Cancer Genetics Service at the National Cancer Centre Singapore with an academic interest in hereditary cancer syndromes and translational clinical cancer genomics. Her current clinical focus and research revolves around understanding cancer predisposition by studying cancers clustering in families, young adults and in families with multiple/rare cancer presentations. After completing her undergraduate medical studies at the University of Melbourne Australia, she completed Internal Medicine training at Singapore General Hospital and trained in Medical Oncology at National Cancer Centre Singapore. She was awarded consecutive fellowships by the SingHealth Research Foundation, National Medical Research Council and the Ambrose Monell Foundation to complete formal clinical and bench training as the Ambrose Monell Cancer Genomic Medicine Fellow at the Genomic Medicine Institute, Cleveland Clinic, Ohio.
She was formally trained in clinical cancer genetics and in laboratory-based human cancer genetics. In 2014, Dr Ngeow returned to NCCS as Assistant Professor, Oncology Academic Clinical Program with Duke-NUS Graduate Medical School to lead the clinical cancer genetics service and research program into inherited cancer syndromes. She was appointed as Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine, NTU Associate Professor of Genomic Medicine in 2017. She was awarded the NMRC Clinician Scientist Award for her work into understanding genetic drivers of cancers.
