APAC’s leading wellness engagement and analytics platform partners with Singapore-based telemedicine platform.
Doctor Anywhere Now Any Time
wellteq is pleased to announce a partnership with telemedicine provider, Dr Anywhere, whose 24/7 virtual consultation rooms allow patients to call in from anywhere for a GP appointment, receive an e-medical certificate that can be sent directly to the employer, and have prescribed medication delivered to their home or office within two hours.
The Brain Gets Sick Before The Body
The inclusion of telehealth services into wellteq’s digital wellness platform closes the circle of a user’s health journey from point of prevention to point of care. As an additional benefit, all users will gain access to a health and wellness marketplace, an e-commerce platform offering a range of fitness, beauty and wellbeing products including TCM, personal training sessions, health foods, supplements and dental packages.
The APAC telehealth market which includes telemedicine, remote patient monitoring and mobile health solutions, is estimated to reach $1.79 billion in 2020 from $1.02 billion in 2015 according to a study by Frost and Sullivan.
What Does This Mean For Employees?
For employers this collaboration brings a new approach to employee wellness programs leveraged by technology:
- Reduces the need to visit a clinic when feeling unwell to ensure a quick recovery.
- Doctor verified sick leave and e-medical certificates which improves accuracy and efficiency in providing evidence for medical claims for HR professionals.
- Improves employee value proposition by offering integrated employee wellness program that includes point of care.
Scott Montgomery, CEO of wellteq, said:
“We’ve been excited to see the rise in popularity of telemedicine services over the last 5 years. It’s an area of mHealth that is seeing an increased number of players and breadth of service. What impressed us most about the Doctor Anywhere was the quick response times (usually less than 10 seconds) and their value-added marketplace that includes a diverse set of partners and unique services like at-home vaccinations.
I predict we’re going to see a continued growth in the use of digital health services across APAC, particularly as we see more insurance companies investing into value-added services for group health premiums to remain competitive. These services now going digital now allows us to bring healthcare to the individual, rather than the individual to healthcare. It’s a huge accelerator to earlier detection and intervention.”
