SingHealth, which serves an estimated 3 million patient visits per year, will use Sunrise Clinical Manager to help connect its caregivers across three hospitals, five national specialty centers and a network of primary healthcare clinics.
"Eclipsys is very excited that such a large and prestigious healthcare organization as SingHealth is the first Sunrise Clinical Manager client outside of North America," said R.
