Singapore, 10 April 2019 – Homecare booking services portal CaregiverAsia and house-call doctor app Speedoc have entered into an agreement to cross-refer their respective pools of doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals to each other’s customers.
The two companies entered into a Memorandum of Understanding on 15 March 2019 to look at opportunities to jointly offer holistic homecare services and aim to aggregate their separate pools of professionals into an integrated booking system by the end of the year. Users will benefit from the convenience of seamless booking and expanded pool of combined healthcare services.
Said Ms Yeo Wan Ling, CEO of CaregiverAsia, “At CaregiverAsia, we are always looking at different ways to improve the overall experience of our careseekers and provide solutions for all their care needs. Through our partnership with Speedoc, house calls by qualified doctors can be made faster and more efficiently. We are thrilled to have found a partner who is equally as dedicated in revolutionizing the home care sector as we are, and has the best interests of careseekers at heart.”
Dr Shravan Verma, CEO and Founder of Speedoc had this to share: “Speedoc is excited to work together with CaregiverAsia, a company which shares our passion for home care. As Singapore’s aging population grows, doctors, nurses and allied care practitioners involved in home care will play key roles in ensuring patient welfare is at the top priority.
“Home is where the heart is, and we find that patients are much happier and comfortable in their own homes, where their families and loved ones are. We’re happy to partner CaregiverAsia to make sure that patients have access to all aspects of affordable healthcare right at home and to work together for better treatment, recovery and rehabilitation,” he added.
