Launched in July 2019, the Singapore Health Technologies Consortium (HealthTEC) offers a platform for interaction and collaboration between industry and academia to develop and translate disruptive technological innovations that will transform health and wellness. It focuses on the areas of health sensing technologies, health analytics and artificial intelligence to create personalised applications for health and wellness. The Consortium also acts as a national resource in R&D and commercialisation by providing seed funding and facilitating licensing of locally developed technologies. HealthTEC is supported by the National Research Foundation (NRF) and hosted at the Institute for Health Innovation and Technology (iHealthtech), National University of Singapore (NUS).
