New Year is for new beginnings and during the auspicious time of the year, GetDoc is very proud and happy to announce some great news! It gives us immense pleasure to announce that GetDoc is partnering with Columbia Asia Hospital Petaling Jaya (CAHPJ). This collaboration has been brought about to help public receive better quality healthcare experience!
20th January 2017 – You are sitting on an uncomfortable chair in a clinic, waiting for what seemed like an eternity for your turn to see the doctor. With each cough and each sniffle, you begin to wonder if it is a better idea to just stay at home and let your own immune system take care of it. We all know how tough it can be in cases of severe illness when we can barely sit for 5 minutes. And if it is your child that is sick, don’t even bother about imagining it – it would be a nightmare for both the child and you.
You are not alone in this. Most people would have had the same experience during their doctor visits. But if we can order our food for pick-up at a specific time, on an app, using our smart phones, why can’t we do the same when it comes to healthcare? When convenience and ease of access to our nearby local clinics are most important during our weakest times.
These thoughts gave birth to GetDoc, a doctor’s appointment booking app. It is the product of a visionary idea from Jerry Hang, one of the co-founders of GetDoc, to make healthcare a pleasant experience for all. Its presence is growing both in Malaysia and Singapore.
Aside from removing the troublesome nature of calling to make an appointment and long queues from walk-ins, what else could GetDoc do to make your doctor visits more welcoming?
