[CS1] A Non-invasive Way to Confirm Benignity of Thyroid Nodules in Ultrasonography for the Expeditious Reassurance of Patients and a Reduction in the Referral Rate for Fine Needle Aspiration

Prevalence and background of disease:
Thyroid nodules are prevalent and its prevalence increases with age to over 70% of mainland Chinese older than 80 in a recent study of 7 million participants (1). The majority of these nodules are asymptomatic, being detected by neck, chest or whole-body imaging that is done for an unrelated indication. However, about 8-16% of such nodules are cancer (2), thus ruling out cancer becomes the priority of evaluating thyroid nodules.

What We Are Looking For

The proposed solution should increase the specificity of risk stratification in ultrasound scans. If we can refine ultrasonography of the thyroid by interpreting fine details obtained in videosonography, we can potentially overcome the issue of low specificity of ultrasonography in detecting thyroid cancers. This can save many patients worldwide from long-term follow-up of their thyroid nodules, reducing their fear of cancer and the need for invasive biopsy. Moreover, this strategy should be more cost-effective than the alternative approaches of advancing cytology by expensive molecular testing.
How should the proposed solution seek to benefit be measured?
1. To determine the sensitivity and specificity of diagnosing thyroid cancer by a novel method of interpreting ultrasonography
2. To measure the referrals of FNAs before and after solution integration

• Up to 70% of patients do not gain efficacy directly from medications dispensed and have tomake modifications to them in one way or another or simply do not take them.
• Multiple medications are needed to treat common conditions such as myocardial infarction,tuberculosis or H. pylori infections.
• Up to 14.5% of Singapore elderly are taking >=5 medications5.
• Up to 60% of patients in Singapore are non-adherent to their medications and this risk isfurther increase 1.45 times if they are taking >=5 medications (polypharmacy).

What We Are Looking For

• The proposed solution should enable patients and caregiver to better manage their medication use due to the limited dosage forms in the market.
• The immediate benefits should translate to better patient experience and adherence and lower care burden.
• Long term benefits will include improve disease management and reduce healthcare costs.

[CS5] Enabling Restricted Weight Bearing Exercise on Post orthopedic trauma patients to improve physical performance and early functional return

 The incidence of tibia fracture is 13 in 100,000 with male-to-female ratio of 3:1 locally.
• According to the AO Principles of Fracture Management, postoperative management of (peri)- or intra-articular fractures of the lower extremities consists of non-weight bearing for 6–12 weeks, followed by partial weight bearing with a 25% increase in weight loading every week
• Premature weight bearing increases stress on implant constructs, risk of fixation failure, loss of reduction and the need of revision surgery
• As such, weight bearing rehabilitation is often cautious, with fear for secondary dislocation of the fracture or failure of mechanical construct
• Furthermore, patients’ compliance with non weight bearing or partial weight bearing regime has been found to be poor. Studies showed that patients actually exceeded the prescribed amount of partial weight bearing 

What We Are Looking For

• Patients who suffered from orthopedic injuries over lower limb (e.g. distal femur, or tibial fracture) requiring restricted weight bearing for a period of duration (6-12 weeks) will benefit from early rehabilitation using proposed solution to reduce risk of deconditioning.
• A robotic device or equipment that allow early physical exercises and joint movement with capability of controlled weight bearing to injured limb, should enable early rehabilitation in this population with aim of improvement in muscle strength, physical activity and early return to function in long term
• A feasibility study should be done to assess device’s safety follow by cost and clinical effectiveness evaluation

[CS6] Mitigating sedentary behaviour among hospitalized elderly and patients with disability to shorten sedentary period and increase physical activities. 

• During hospitalization, patients were spending more time engaged in sedentary behaviour (SB) and were less physically active than after discharge at home.
• This is even more prominent in stroke patients and older adults who spent up to 76% and 96% daily with sitting or lying down.
• Sedentary behaviour has been associated with poor health outcome such as physical and cognitive declined, reduced quality of life, depression and frailty, risk of premature death, mortality, length of hospital stay, and hospital readmission rate.
• Illustrate current state/ practice.
• Early referral to physiotherapist and nursing intervention has been attempted to mitigate the SB, however they were unable to reduce the high prevalence of SB in the hospital significantly due to manpower and resources constraint.

What We Are Looking For

• Early rehabilitation for elderly and patient with disability is beneficial for recovery and favourable outcome:
- Clinically, likely more than 50% in rehab ward (patients with good cognition) will benefit from the proposed solution. (Purely advising patient to increase PA may not address SB based on studies)
- Activities that interrupt period of SB could include sit-to-stand, walking to lounge room to socialise with other patients and walking to restroom rather than using a commode.

• Understanding the perspectives of stakeholders and end-users regarding interventions on ubiquitous health issues is critical to reducing SB among hospitalised older people successfully.

• We propose using sensors or gamification device could potentially interrupt SB among hospitalized patient. This can be in inpatient wards in acute hospitals, subacute rehab wards, community hospitals and/or nursing homes.

[CS12] The Project Aims to Reduce the Manpower Hours Required to Report LDCT for Lung Cancer Screening, while Maintaining Accuracy. This Would Help to Extend LDCT Screening of Lung Cancer in the Never-smokers

• Globally, lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related death, especially among men. Compared with Western countries, Asia-Pacific countries, particularly Singapore, are showing alarming disparities in lung cancer patterns. Data from 2011 shows that 47.7% of lung cancers in Singapore are detected among never-smokers, compared to 10%–15% in Western countries.
• Singapore does not currently have any lung cancer screening programmes in place at the moment. Current recommendations suggest that high-risk individuals undergo targeted screening using low-dose CT thorax (LDCT) who have these factors:
- Adults aged 55-80 years 
- 30 pack-year smoking history (For example: a pack a day for 30 years, 2 packs a day for 15 years) • Current smokers 
- Smokers who quit within the past 15 years
- Detection of lung cancer on LDCT is a labour intensive and tedious task, as it requires detection of small nodules in a large set of images. In a frequently used dataset (a subset of the lung cancer screening program from 1996 to 1999 in Nagano), the original manual misdetection rate was 76% (38 of 50 nodules were missed). 

What We Are Looking For

• Based on the results of the National Lung Screening Trial (NLST), over the course of about seven years, there are approximately three fewer deaths per 1,000 people screened with LDCT than with chest X-ray (17.6 versus 20.7 respectively).
• The NLST showed that lung cancer screening could be cost-effective; it is estimated that screening can save about USD 81,000 per quality-adjusted life-year (QALY) gained over non-screening.
• There are currently a number of solutions available on the market for the automated detection of nodules. The use of these solutions has been shown to improve lung cancer detection sensitivity and false positive rates.
• The hypothesis of the project is that a commercially available AI solution for pulmonary detection and characterisation on LDCT will reduce the manpower hours for interpretation by 20% without significant (<10%) loss of accuracy.
• During the Lung Nodule Analysis 2016 (LUNA16) challenge, the best AI solution reached a sensitivity of 97.2% at the expense of 1 false positive per scan on average.

[CS17] A way to improve sun protection practices for patients who has been diagnosed with at least 1 skin cancer in order to achieve secondary prevention of skin cancer

• Skin cancer is the 6th most common cancer in males, and 7th most common cancer in females in Singapore.
• The most common cause is that of prolonged, cumulative ultraviolet ray (UVR) exposure. In order to prevent skin cancer development, one should seek shade or use devices to protect against sun. This include sunblock creams, and UVR-blocking clothes or umbrella.
• Sun protection is essential even on cloudy days or when indoors as the UVR could penetrate the clouds and/or glass.
• The ultraviolet index (UVI) is an international standard index that describes the level of solar UVR on the earth’s surface. The index ranges from 0 to >11. A higher index value indicates a greater potential for harmful effects to the skin and the eyes.

What We Are Looking For

• We propose to develop a portable device that could accurately measure the UVR index at a specific location. In addition, the device would be able to assess if adequate sun protection is employed.
• In general, anyone would be able to benefit from this device. For a start, the target population would be patients who have had 1 or more skin cancers diagnosed as this group of patients would be at risk of developing new skin cancers.
• Benefits can be measured as follows:
- Improvement in the use of sun protection e.g. increase frequency of use of sun protection devices
- Increase awareness in sun protection amongst our patients e.g. survey before and after use of device
- Reduction in skin cancer

Alcohol Use Disorder
Based on the Singapore Mental Health Study, a national wide, cross sectional epidemiological survey initiated in 2016, lifetime prevalence of alcohol abuse is 4.1% compared to Singapore Mental Health Study done in 2010 of 3.1%

Frequent alcohol use is also associated with increase medical problems, such as liver cirrhosis, alcoholic encephalopathy, frequent falls, and increased risk of suicidality.

Alcoholics that become drunk also often come to the emergency services disinhibited and in various kinds crisis– be it aggression or suicidality only to demand discharge from Emergency Services when sober. This takes up a lot of resources in the acute emergency settings, which results in longer waiting time at the emergency services, and wasting of resources.

What We Are Looking For

Who will mainly benefit
- Healthier community: People with alcohol use disorders who have difficulties abstaining from alcohol
- Hospital processes: Efficient use of manpower and resources with lesser time spent on intoxicated patients in the Emergency Services.

What should the proposed solution seek to achieve?
Reduction in intoxication rates, assessed by number of Emergency Service visits due to intoxication

How will benefit be measured?
Benefit will be measured based on a reduction in frequency of Emergency Room presentations as a result of alcohol intoxication. This will be a proxy to assess for a reduction in the number of alcohol intoxication episodes for patients with alcohol use disorders
