- To offer teleconsultation, home monitoring, appointment booking
Health Digital Technologies Sdn Bhd (DoctorOnCall), has inked a strategic partnership with Pertubuhan Doktor–Doktor Islam Malaysia (Perdim), an organisation that manages general practitioners in the provision of primary care in Malaysia.
In a statement, the digital healthcare platform said the partnership is aimed at providing Perdim members with access to list their services on the DoctorOnCall platform, connecting them with potential patients seamlessly to bridge the gap between healthcare providers and patients.
DoctorOnCall claimed to be a secure digital platform that offers an online database of healthcare products and services by consolidating information and offerings from numerous healthcare providers and medical experts across Malaysia.
This online database helps patients search for and identify suitable, reputable and verified doctors, treatments and products, the company said.
Members of Perdim will be able to upload and list their treatments and services on the platform to tap a wider telemedicine and digital health customer base, it said.
In an effort to reshape healthcare provider-patient relationships and interactions, it said members of Perdim will be able to offer remote health-related services such as teleconsultation and home monitoring aside from enabling patients to make bookings for physical appointments at their physical clinics.
Patients will also be able to receive timely and urgent care that is cost and time-effective as it eliminates the need for them to travel and wait long hours in a queue, DoctorOnCall said.
Hazwan Najib (pic), director and co-founder of DoctorOnCall said, “As part of our mission to make healthcare more accessible, DoctorOnCall is committed to cultivating a network of healthcare providers across the nation to provide superior healthcare.
“By truly understanding the pain points faced in the Malaysian healthcare ecosystem, we were able to tailor a one-stop healthcare platform that delivers a synergistically integrated suite of services by providing our platform to Perdim doctors,” he said
He added that this partnership will also empower patients with broader options and value-added access to elite healthcare services recognised by Perdim.
Meanwhile, Dr Boi Saidi Abdul Razak (pic), president of Perdim said, “This partnership will help medical practitioners unlock new possibilities in providing healthcare.
“It is an exciting opportunity that will empower us to provide enhanced medical services to remain competitive in this digital age,” he said.
“The DoctorOnCall platform will enable medical practitioners to conduct periodic medical check-ins and provide palliative care while patients will be able to seamlessly seek opinions or recommendations and purchase medications at their physical outlets,” he added.
DoctorOnCall’s platform features a business-to-business marketplace that digitalises and facilitates the procurement process between the buyers (clinics and doctors) and the sellers (distributors).
