HMI Group and Siemens Healthineers enter into strategic partnership

The partnership will focus on upgrading HMI Group’s healthcare facilities, anchoring on digitalisation and enhancing the local talent pool

Health Management International (HMI Group) and Siemens Healthineers entered into a five-year strategic partnership to advance healthcare delivery in Southeast Asia. As part of this first-of-its-kind partnership in the region, HMI Group will invest over SGD 32 million to roll out innovative medical technologies and digitalisation platforms, enhance clinical education and further develop Centres of Excellence (CoEs) in the key clinical areas of cancer, neuroscience and cardiovascular diseases. This investment is a key component of the HMI Group’s ongoing expansion initiatives across StarMed Specialist Centre in Singapore and tertiary hospitals in Malaysia — Mahkota Medical Centre (Mahkota) in Melaka and Regency Specialist Hospital (Regency) in Johor.

Chin Wei Jia, Group CEO, HMI Group said, “This strategic partnership will enable HMI Group’s medical facilities to improve patient care by serving as flagship reference sites for Siemens Healthineers in Southeast Asia. As the care of our patients is at the centre of everything that we do, our partnership will accelerate the adoption of connected health, thereby providing faster access to care, while building telehealth and predictive analytics capabilities at scale, all of which will go a long way in enhancing our patients’ journey towards a healthier outcome.”

According to Fabrice Leguet, MD and Head of Siemens Healthineers, Southeast Asia, “At Siemens Healthineers, we understand the challenges that healthcare providers face in meeting the demand of providing quality healthcare. We are delighted to have signed this strategic partnership with HMI Group, which is the first such for us in Southeast Asia. We will not only provide our innovative technology and digital solutions but also support HMI Group to create value through enhanced training programmes and provide healthcare consulting to further develop Centres of Excellence in the areas of cancer, neuroscience and cardiovascular. This will further position HMI Group as a leading quality healthcare provider in the region.”

As part of the pioneer cohort of Enterprise Singapore (ESG)’s Scale-up SG programme, HMI Group has made significant strides in digital transformation and community engagement to accelerate growth. Acquiring new capabilities through this partnership demonstrates HMI Group’s pursuit to unleash healthcare innovation to spur growth, develop higher value-added services and venture into new markets.

Ted Tan, Deputy CEO, Enterprise Singapore said, “We would like to congratulate HMI Group and Siemens Healthineers on their strategic partnership. Building on the growth strategies developed through the Scale-up SG programme, we are confident that this partnership to leverage digital technologies will further strengthen HMI as a leading healthcare provider in Southeast Asia.”
