Sin­ga­pore of­fers a new tele-con­sult app for pa­tients

BioSpectrum (Asia) - - Company News -

A new app has been re­cently launched in Sin­ga­pore that al­lows pa­tients to book ap­point­ments with doc­tors, and have roundthe-clock tele-con­sul­ta­tion with them. Since the app was soft launched in Jan­uary, close to 100,000 ap­point­ments have al­ready been booked. The app is part of a larger health­care plat­form, also called MaNaDr.

It is owned by health­care firm Mo­bile Health, which was set up by a group of doc­tors in Sin­ga­pore. The app pro­vides an ex­tra stream of rev­enue for doc­tors through the paid tele­con­sults, though they do not have to pay a fee to put their ser­vices on the app. Pa­tients can text doc­tors and send pic­tures of their med­i­cal con­di­tion through the app for the tele-con­sults, which are mostly used as fol­low-up con­sul­ta­tions. If their pre­ferred doc­tor is un­avail­able, they will be re­ferred to an­other doc­tor through the app.
