KUALA LUMPUR (April 10): Telehealth solution provider DOC2US has launched its new subsidiary, DOC2HOME, a digital health platform that provides personalised home-based healthcare services through technology, catered to residents and homeowners.
In a statement on Monday (April 10), the e-prescriptions and digital health provider said DOC2HOME is a hybrid digital health app that attends to patients’ healthcare needs directly from their homes, without the hassle of travelling.
The firm said apart from providing medical services right to the doorstep, its flagship Health Concierge service personnel are trained to provide triage under the supervision of a medical practitioner, wherein patients and caregivers can access health advisory from healthcare providers at their fingertips.
DOC2US chief executive officer Dr Raymond Choy said DOC2HOME is a modern-day adaptation of a historical practice in medicine — house calls, whereby doctors and healthcare providers go to the homes of their patients, rather than the other way around (i.e. patients going to doctors’ and healthcare provider’s clinics and hospitals). Digitalisation is also a big part of this transformation.
“Other than home visits, DOC2HOME takes pride in its array of virtual health services powered by DOC2US, for the modern homeowner,” he said.
Choy said the healthcare services are designed to accommodate today’s fast-paced world, wherein the modern population is often on the move and health is compromised for convenience, as it is at times troublesome to travel to healthcare facilities for consultation, refilling medication and supplements, or other healthcare supplies.
“We are thrilled to spearhead this with S P Setia (Bhd), in line with what they have envisioned for their eco-townships.
“Our shared value to centralise good health will safeguard the wellbeing of the Eco Series communities and provide residents with a peace of mind.”
In conjunction with S P Setia’s STAY Campaign, Choy said that Goldea 2, the latest phase of Precinct Arundina at Setia Eco Park, will be the first to offer DOC2HOME’s healthcare services to residents of Goldea 2.
