Malaysia's first and largest digital health platform, DoctorOnCall, also known as Health Digital Technologies Sdn Bhd, has bagged a a strategic partnership with Pertubuhan Doktor–Doktor Islam Malaysia (PERDIM) aimed at providing PERDIM members with access to DoctorOnCall’s services and connecting them with potential patients.
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 and 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.
"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,” said Hazwan Najib, Director and Co-Founder of DoctorOnCall.
“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. With that they are able to create convenience, responsiveness, and trust by providing patients with a wide spectrum of healthcare products and services all at their fingertips."
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. It avoids overcrowding in healthcare facilities that can be detrimental to those who are immunocompromised, with disabilities or have underlying health conditions that could be in a position of risk around large crowds.
"Our partnership with PERDIM will further fortify our network of quality and diversified healthcare capabilities. This partnership will also empower patients with broader options and value-added access to elite healthcare services recognised by PERDIM. Having their offerings listed on DoctorOnCall will enable PERDIM's healthcare providers to offer more patient-centric services, elevating patients' needs," Hazwan added.
DoctorOnCall offers an online database of healthcare products and services by consolidating information and offerings from numerous healthcare providers and medical experts across Malaysia.
To date, DoctorOnCall has the most comprehensive healthcare service offerings that are offered by over 1,000 medical practitioners on the platform. DoctorOnCall has connected close to 700,000 patients with healthcare providers since its inception.
