The HPF-ILTC is an initiative under the Healthcare Productivity Roadmap, endorsed by the National Productivity and Continuing Education Council (NPCEC)​.

This grant supports partners who wish to test out new ideas to use manpower and resources more effectively. 

CHIPS funds up to 80% for projects new to the sector, and two-thirds the cost for other eligible projects.

If you are thinking about tapping on automation or technology, ways to improve your working conditions, or how to improve the quality of your care, click here to read how CHIPS can help.​

This collaboration between Agency for Integrated Care (AIC) and participating Community Care partners aggregates the demand for various goods and services. 

As a result, you can enjoy bulk purchase savings, better contract terms and service quality from vendors. Your staff will also spend less time on purchasing items.  

Examples of shared procurement initiatives include the bulk purchase of medical and non-medical items for Voluntary Welfare Organisations (VWOs), and IT support services.
