MyDoc product updates for June 2017

Instant Video Consults for faster healthcare

To make access to healthcare faster and more efficient, we’re introducing this new feature. Medical professionals can now initiate instant video consults with patients. With a simple tap on the video button, a video consult will be initiated allowing the patient and the doctor to seamlessly move from chatting to video without the need to schedule or book a timeslot in advance. This enables convenience to both doctors and patients and waiting time is reduced.

Quick and easy video consultations

Virtual Clinic Bot

Patient engagement remains a core goal of our service and MyDoc’s new virtual clinic bot attends to queries that need immediate attention and assists in scheduling video consults for patients. This helps make sure patients are getting the right level of care, being provided the right pre-consult information and getting a video consultation as quickly as possible.

Enhanced bot conversations

Forwarding Messages

MyDoc users can now forward a message from one conversation to another. This feature provides an easy option for patients to get the second opinion by sharing your health screening results or other information whilst retaining full control of who sees your healthcare data. This feature is only available on our web app for now.

Our partners now have a simple solution to onboard large numbers of patients and accurately control access to the online health services.

Android for Doctors

Medical professionals can now access their MyDoc accounts on Android phones and tablets as well as on iOS devices and the web.

How to manage outbreaks in the face of a healthcare crisis

Dr. Snehal Patel, CEO and Co-Founder, MyDoc

When the World Health Organisation (WHO) declared the recent 2019-nCoV Novel Coronavirus outbreak a Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC), I was in Bangkok speaking to a few business partners about expanding our digital healthcare services in the country. Naturally, in Thailand, there were a lot of concerns surrounding the 2019-nCoV coronavirus, more commonly referred to as the Wuhan virus.

Ever since the first reported case outside of China was announced on the 13th of January in Thailand, our clinical team has been closely monitoring the situation. When it hit Singapore 10 days later, just before the Chinese New Year break, our team was not preparing for the festivities, but rather preparing for a crisis. We knew our digital healthcare platform had the capability to respond quickly to the epidemic that was fast turning into a pandemic.


First, let me quash some rumours: The latest coronavirus outbreak is not the faste…

We all know someone who seems to always be on some sort of diet to lose weight. It’s rare to hear about success stories of people losing weight and keeping it off over time.

How do we define success? A truly successful weight loss programme is one that can ensure a weight loss beyond one year after completion of the programme. In fact, studies show that the percentage of people who fail to keep the weight off after 5 years is around 80%.

Oh no! But why? Everyone can lose weight, but very few can maintain it. While there are many reasons why that is the case, the biggest issue with most diets is the lack of education.

Most diets do not teach about healthy eating and positive behaviour changes; instead, they promote dietary changes that are difficult and unhealthy to maintain.

That isn’t the only problem. Here are some other reasons:
Our society encourages calorie consumption and minimal usage of them. Food is increasingly ultra-processed, portions are growing and most of us e…
