CMS Sutra

As Singapore embarks on HealthierSG and with the upcoming Health and Information Bill, the adoption of Smart Clinic Management Systems (CMSes) by primary care physicians (PCPs) in private practice is expected to increase. The CMS Sutra project is conducted by the College of Family Physicians Singapore (CFPS) and supported by the MOH Office for Healthcare Transformation (MOHT). CMS Sutra seeks to provide a progressive series of independent reviews about the current state and functionalities of the major commercially available CMSes so as to assist PCPs in making an informed decision on the adoption of a suitable CMS.

CMS Sutra’s review methodology involves following a mixed-methods structure, both surveying the general GP population as well as in depth discussions with CFPS appointed reviewers who are users of the different CMSes to understand the capabilities of the CMSes in real-world clinic workflows.
