Senior / Health Policy Analysts (Primary Care Subvention)

Agency: Ministry of Health
Job no.: 531613
Work type: Permanent/Contract
Location: Singapore
Categories:Economics/Statistics, Healthcare, Policy Formulation, Research and Analysis, Statistics

The Ministry of Health’s (MOH) vision is to champion a healthy nation with our people – to live well, live long and with peace of mind. As an open country constantly exposed to an interconnected world, Singapore faces complex issues in public healthcare. MOH constantly grapples with new challenges brought on by an increasingly globalised world, a rapidly ageing population and rising expectations. MOH’s responses to these challenges include preventing and managing the outbreak of diseases such as SARS and Influenza A (H1N1), designing a healthcare system that delivers care in an integrated and effective manner, growing the capacity and capabilities within the sector, and managing healthcare inflation.

As an MOH officer, you will be involved in formulating and implementing policies that guide Singapore’s healthcare ecosystem. You will work alongside a team with varied skills and backgrounds, but with the common goals of (i) promoting good health and reducing illnesses; (ii) ensuring that Singaporeans have access to good and affordable healthcare; and (iii) pursuing medical excellence. Your work will have far-reaching impact on the health and lives of Singaporeans.

You will formulate and/or view primary and preventive healthcare policies to ensure that healthcare is affordable and accessible to patients, a key prong of MOH’s Beyond Healthcare to Health thrust. This would involve detailed analysis of healthcare costs, patient bill sizes and other data, to objectively inform policy and decision-making. You will also be involved in operational policies and ensuring optimisation of systems and processes to support the integrity of claims made under our primary healthcare financing schemes (e.g. the Community Health Assist Scheme (CHAS)), and deter healthcare providers from overcharging and over-servicing their patients.
