About Doctor Anywhere – 

Doctor Anywhere has an omnichannel approach means that in addition to online consultations, it has private clinics that provide home visits, operates an in-app marketplace for health and wellness products, and medication deliveries. 

Doctor Anywhere was founded in 2017 by Lim Wai Mun, it claims that it now serves 1.5+ million users. It provides services in Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, the Philippines and Vietnam, and established tech hubs in Ho Chi Minh City and Bangalore.

Doctor Anywhere was initiated as an online telehealth platform, but “we quickly realized that physical presence is very important in order to build trust with users,” said Lim. As a result, the company started its physical clinics and home care services. 

According to Doctor Anywhere’s estimates, the COVID-19 pandemic fast-tracked the adoption of telehealth services in Southeast Asia by at least five years. The company saw more demand for online medical consultations, medication deliveries and marketplace purchases. 

“In the past year, we have more than doubled the size of our network, from around 1,000 providers at the start of 2020 to currently close to 2,500 medical professionals across Southeast Asia,” Lim said. 

As keeping the COVID-19 pandemic situation in mind, Doctor Anywhere launched an online COVID-19 Medical Advisory Clinic in 2020 to provide on-demand consultations for people with symptoms of the virus. The startup also created a module with psychologists for online mental wellness. Lim said, “the company has seen an increase in demand for mental health-related services, like insomnia and anxiety.”
