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.

MyDoc’s partners can now onboard users through unique identifiers like a policy or membership number. This feature allows users to gain access to private groups that offer premium services. 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.

Thursday Tips: Here's why your diets aren't working

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 mo

Don’t let your markers turn RED over Chinese New Year

Red. An auspicious colour for an auspicious occasion. Well, not if it is turning up on your health care report. Chinese New Year is a time for joyful reunions and enjoying the company of loved ones. However, Chinese New Year is also a time when there are hidden dangers lurking. From the high sugar, high fat content foods, to the long journeys balik kampung , the festive season can quickly become a breeding ground for silent health risks.

Given the nature of festivities, there is an increased chance of human contact especially in crowded areas, which also means you are more susceptible to contracting certain illnesses. It certainly does not help that a lot of us, (this writer included) throw caution to the wind when it comes to looking after our diet over the festive seasons. Our immune system can be easily compromised by poor nutrition or lack of sufficient rest. This is especially when we are busy juggling
