Singapore has passed legislation to develop a National Registry of Diseases, which will enable targeted health policies to be put in place. "Our current disease registries suffer a major limitation as they are based on voluntary reporting. While public hospitals have been forthcoming in reporting, many private hospitals have largely not taken part. As a result, our registries are incomplete," according to health minister Khaw Boon Wan quoted by channelnewsasia.com The legislation will also make it mandatory for doctors to report diseases, and will include guidelines on patient confidentiality.
