Malaysia's DoctorOnCall ties up with insurance and healthcare firms

It has partnered with Great Eastern to include telemedicine as an optional benefit.

Malaysia’s digital health platform DoctorOnCall has tied up with insurance companies and health industry stalwarts with the goal of providing digital access to healthcare amidst the rising COVID-19 cases in the country, according to a press release.

Thomson Hospital Kota Damansara and Columbia Asia have inked a partnership agreement with DoctorOnCall to offer immediate access to patients via DoctorOnCall's digital health platform.

At the same time, Great Eastern Life Malaysia and Great Eastern Takaful Berhad are the first insurer and takaful operator, respectively, in Malaysia to partner with DoctorOnCall to include telemedicine as an optional benefit in their medical suite of products.

With this partnership, patients will not only be able to seek medical advice with a general practitioner, but also buy medication through prescription online with free delivery.
