Singapore, 22 January 2019 – Caregiver Asia Pte Ltd, an online aggregator of trusted on-demand health and caregiving services, and Holmusk, a digital health and data science company, partner to wage war against diabetes – a disease that affects one in nine Singaporeans.
Supplementing the CaregiverPlus Programme – a customised home care management service by CaregiverAsia – Holmusk’s GlycoLeap app will enable the CaregiverAsia user community to prevent or control diabetes through a mobile dietician coach. “Careseekers who are suffering from diabetes or are concerned about keeping the disease at bay will be recommended to subscribe to the GlycoLeap app by our Nurse Consultants,” said Kumari Rai, CaregiverAsia’s Nurse Manager. Along with a comprehensive care plan provided by CaregiverPlus, a healthier weight and lifestyle can be achieved in three to six months.
GlycoLeap will also be made readily available on CaregiverAsia’s newly launched E-store at https://estore.caregiverasia.com, allowing customers to subscribe for the service through an integrated marketplace.
Said Ms Yeo Wan Ling, CEO of CaregiverAsia, “This partnership allows CaregiverAsia to take our home care and care management services to the next level. With the GlycoLeap app, our customised care plans for diabetes will be augmented by Holmusk’s crew of dietitians who are available in real-time for advice and guidance. Innovative startups working together by leveraging on their unique strengths are an excellent way of providing ground-breaking solutions to everyday problems. We look forward to more exciting partnerships like the one we have with Holmusk.”
Nawal Roy, CEO of Holmusk had this to share, “We’re really happy to partner with CaregiverAsia to provide their members direct access to GlycoLeap, a digital programme which empowers people with chronic diseases like diabetes to manage their health and stay healthy. In today’s rapidly aging society, innovative solutions like CaregiverAsia’s on demand home care services and Holmusk’s GlycoLeap make it extremely simple and convenient for people to access the professional care they need, whenever they need it.”
