INSIGHT speaks to Dr Yap to learn about his journey in creating the Dr ECG App.
Dr Yap: The Dr ECG App is a labour of love from a group of sleep-deprived Cardiology senior Residents guided by our ever dedicated mentors. :)The concept of the Dr ECG App was first conceived when we saw fellow clinicians having difficulties interpreting ECG readings. Thus, we set out to create a learning tool that would be useful and practical for medical students and Residents for their daily clinical practice, to help them find clarity and gain confidence in their ECG interpretation.
2. Tell us what is unique about your App?
3. Developing an app is tough work. Could you share with us how the Dr ECG App was developed?
4. What was one of the biggest challenges faced in the development of the App?
5. Any tips for your fellow doctors who are keen to create solutions that will innovate and enhance the way we deliver care?
Our app took many years of hard work before coming to fruition, but the benefits that people have reaped from using the app and the lessons learnt are worth it all.
*This project was funded by an educational grant from the SingHealth Duke-NUS Academic Clinical Programme and supported by the Office of SingHealth Academy.
