Healthcare InnoMatch 2021

Centre for Healthcare Innovation Start-Up Enterprise Link (CHISEL)

We have wrapped up Healthcare InnoMatch 2021 & 2022.
Head over to our official website to know more about next year's Healthcare InnoMatch 2023 open call!


Healthcare Innovations, Adopted at Speed and at Scale


The Healthcare InnoMatch 2021 by Temasek Foundation and the Centre for Healthcare Innovation (CHI) is calling for innovative, market-ready or near market-ready solutions to address critical and emerging healthcare needs!

Organised in partnership with Singapore General Hospital (SGH), National University Hospital (NUH) and Tan Tock Seng Hospital (TTSH), the Healthcare InnoMatch 2021 is seeking solutions that can enhance patient care and deliver positive health outcomes in any of the three following themes: 


  1. Frail No More
  2. Reducing Hospital Acquired Infections
  3. Digitisation to Enhance Patient Care, Journey and Experience


Successful proposals in the Healthcare InnoMatch 2021 will obtain funding support to demonstrate their solutions in operational environments and will receive a further endorsement from healthcare institutions upon successful validation of the results of pilot implementation. Ultimately, the platform aims to bridge the market adoption gap and allow patients early access to new and emerging healthcare innovations to address our critical healthcare needs.

With the evolving COVID-19 situation, the Finale Pitch of Healthcare InnoMatch will make its comeback as soon as the situation permits.
While we were raring to go and witness the “Live” pitching of innovations at CHI INNOVATE 2021 on 6 May, out of caution and care for our participants, we will reconvene the Finale Pitch of Healthcare InnoMatch at a later date.
The finalist start-ups/SMEs will pitch in front of the judging panel consisting of senior management and domain experts from the participating hospitals and Temasek Foundation at the Finale Pitch.
In the meantime, stay safe and keep innovating!
