IHH Healthcare is collaborating with regional digital healthcare platform Doctor Anywhere (DA) to offer teleconsultations by specialists from its four hospitals in Singapore, namely Gleneagles, Mount Elizabeth, Mount Elizabeth Novena, and Parkway East.
In a statement today the healthcare provider said that the pilot phase is due to be launched on 6 September.
“Users on DA’s platform will be the first to enjoy affordable medical advice and second opinion consultations by IHH Singapore specialists for sought after specialties such as orthopaedics, gastroenterology and general surgery (colorectal),” IHH said.
In the future IHH hopes to offer more specialties such as cardiology and oncology to be added to the platform.
IHH’s partnership with DA started in March 2020 as a co-lead in DA’s US$27 million Series B funding round.
It recently made a follow-on investment as part of DA’s Series C fundraising.
