Dr. Melvin Heng, a partner at OneCare Medical, is passionate about the idea of leveraging technology to improve not just the efficiency of the clinics, but also that of patient experience. “At the end of the day, we exist because of the patient, and therefore we make it our mission to ensure that the patient is as comfortable as possible in the midst of discomfort. By being able to search for the nearest clinic, and making a booking, patients cut down travel time and more importantly, waiting time at the clinic so they get to see the doctor faster and get back home to rest. That’s most important to us.”
Woon Shung Toon, Founder and CEO of Jireh Group, parent company of GetDoc (www.getdoc.co) in Singapore & Malaysia says he is excited about this partnership as it brings convenience closer to the ground, introducing a better healthcare experience to the man on the street. “We have already on board the largest privately owned dental group, Dental Focus, now with OneCare Medical, our service to users is greatly enhanced. We want to continue using technology to improve lives and what better way than to be able to help people find the care when they need quickly and simply, reducing unnecessary waiting time.
GetDoc continues to grow its network of healthcare professionals across all disciplines with the goal of being the go-to name for healthcare needs. It recently partnered with 2 Dental Groups to increase productivity and improve the patient experience at Dental Focus (http://www.smilesdfi.com/focus-main/) and Gentle Dental Group (http://www.gentledental.com.sg/).
