EPP 5: Creating a Diagnostic Services Nexus

  • GNI by 2020 (mil)
  • Projected jobs by 2020

The establishment of a Diagnostic Services Nexus (DSN) seeks to reduce waiting times for radiologist diagnostic services by coordinating and distributing the workload using a teleradiology system that connects public and private hospitals. This will allow domestic radiology to increase its scale and scope and create opportunities for international growth.

To this end, Diagnostic Services Nexus Sdn Bhd, a private consortium of strategic technology, telecommunications and operations partners including General Electric Healthcare, was established to coordinate and implement the DSN project. In addition to providing DSN technology to hospitals, the consortium will also build capacity and link radiologists throughout the country to grow the talent pool while ensuring the system is sustainable.

As at May 2013, four hospitals have participated as pilot sites for the DSN, comprising Hospital Kuala Lumpur, Hospital Selayang, Hospital Tengku Ampuan Rahimah and Hospital Sultanah Aminah.


  • A private consortium which is made up of operations partners, GE Healthcare is currently reviewing its project plans.
