This App Allows You to Chat With Doctors and TCM Specialists on COVID-19 Related Questions
This app is providing Singaporeans with relevant, accessible and affordable healthcare amid the global COVID-19 pandemic.
SINGAPORE, April 10, 2020
Integrated telehealth platform, Doctor World is ramping up on its digital infrastructure to continue providing Singaporeans with relevant, accessible and affordable healthcare amid the global COVID-19 pandemic.
The digital platform, which is currently partnered with over 200 healthcare providers including Raffles Medical Group, has been providing 24/7 teleconsultation since January last year. The service allows users to consult with Singapore-licensed doctors via video call, have their
medicine delivered to them under 3 hours, and receive digital copies of their medical certificate all from the comfort of their own homes.
In the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, the existing online services offered by Doctor World help mitigate the risk of viral transmission by minimising the amount of face-to-face interactions.
Chat With Doctors and TCM Specialists
Users can chat* with Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) specialists, pharmacists and general practitioners (GPs) on matters relating to COVID-19.
*Users should note that the text chat service does not constitute a medical consultation. It is not to diagnose illness and prescribe medication. Instead, it serves as a communication channel for users seeking quick answers to medical matters from real experts (as opposed to chatbots).
Should the need for a GP consultation arises, users can seamlessly opt for a teleconsultation, or take an eQueue number to visit a nearby clinic via the same platform.
Track Your Body Temperature
With daily temperature-taking fast becoming the norm for individuals and companies alike, Doctor World has introduced a feature for users to record and monitor their temperature readings. If the recorded temperature is above 37.50-degree celsius, users will be alerted to seek immediate medical attention either via teleconsultation or physical consultation. Users can also set up to 3 daily reminders for temperature-taking. Companies can make use of this service to cut out the administrative hassle of temperature-tracking of their employees.
