A health system that is more data-driven and patient-centric, which leverages the innovative use of technology and digital solutions, will be areas warranting research attention and coverage. The Annals invites submission of manuscripts that advance the scientific basis of clinical knowledge, and the practice of medicine in Singapore and internationally. We welcome submissions that address challenges in the management of chronic diseases (e.g. cancer, cardiovascular diseases, ageing, diabetes mellitus and neurological diseases), and use of technology and digital medicine to improve patient care.Papers of sufficient merits will be published. Authors will also be notified if their manuscripts are deemed not suitable for publication.
