Imaging plays a pivotal role in the diagnostic process for many patients; however, the impact of diagnostic errors is considerable.

In the face of COVID-19, acceleration in healthcare digital transformation has indicated the urgent need for greater efficiency and responsiveness. From identifying cases to determining the diagnosis, more demand will be inevitably placed on radiology departments due to the rapidly changing circumstances in healthcare.
With Claritas HealthTech registered under the Health Sciences Authority Singapore (HSA) as a class A Medical Device Manufacturer, this enables the company to manufacture, import and wholesale medical devices in Singapore. Already established among renowned healthcare research organizations in Singapore and Indonesia, Claritas HealthTech aims to continue their expansion with physician groups and teleradiology practices across Asia, North America, and the United Kingdom. Beyond medical image processing and image enhancement products, Claritas will also be releasing several medical AI tools to help clinicians in rapid and accurate detection of abnormalities.
