CorpPass: New Login Solution for Greater Data Privacy Protection

Currently, entities access government e-Services using their Singpass or EASY accounts. With CorpPass, entities will have a unique login account to access government e-Services. This would ensure greater data privacy protection for individuals as SingPass is only used for personal e-Service transactions

Healthcare Portals Supporting Your Clinic
 
MOH Healthcare Claims Portal (MHCP)

MOH Healthcare Claims Portal (MHCP) is an upcoming, integrated one-stop portal for the administration of government healthcare schemes in primary care setting such as CDMP and CHAS.

What are the benefits of MHCP?

  • Web-based portal, hence no installation required
  • Accessible from any location at any time with an Internet connection
  • In CDMP and CHAS clinics, claims for multiple schemes within the same visit date can be combined into one submission form

E-learning for national core schemes

This allows GPs and clinic assistants to undergo the required training at their convenience, without disrupting clinic operations while ensuring a faster CDMP accreditation process.

How do I register for an e-learning session?

GPs can go to www.mediclaim.moh.gov.sg/mmae/OverviewTraining.aspx to register for CDMP training for themselves or their clinic staff. An email notification from MOH will be sent to the designated email-address to access the e-learning platform. Training participants are given 30 days to complete the training course.

What is IRMS?

The Integrated Referral Management System (IRMS) is a one-stop online platform for Restructured Hospitals (RHs), Community Hospitals (CHs), Polyclinics, and the community to put up patient referrals for health and social care services. This greatly reduces the time taken to process the referrals and match patients with a suitable centre based on their health and social needs.
