THE QUICK LOOK

TSP worked with one of Singapore’s Health Laboratories to develop and deliver a bespoke Laboratory Information Management System with high focus on data security and UI/UX. The System is used by the laboratory to manage test results of Singapore residents whose samples come from polyclinics and GPs across the island.

Various layers of security were implemented to ensure the personal and medical data of Singaporean residents are protected and secured.

The Challenges

The project had to be delivered while meeting the following requirements

  • Secure management of highly sensitive personal information and medical data
  • Integration with whole-of-government (WOG) systems
  • A modular (microservices inspired) architecture
  • Stringent data security requirements on transferring, storing and display of sensitive personal data

SOLUTION

Our bespoke laboratory information system was delivered successfully with all security requirements met.

The System is managed by a bespoke workflow and business rules engine, to manage the test processes, and results, and comes with various complex reporting functionalities to allow users to sort, filter, view and download various critical business reports.

We were able to achieve the key objectives of the System:

  • Modernize and improve operational efficiency of request management
  • Architect a future-ready application for scale
  • Build a highly secure system that can capture and store medical data of Singaporeans (including personally identifiable information, medical history, test results)
