To show our continued support, we brought our staff down to the ‘Get Active with Gojek!’ event to promote healthy living amongst driver-partners’ and celebrate their achievements, and we look forward to more meaningful health engagement initiatives like this in the near future!” said Lim Wai Mun, Founder & Chief Executive Officer of Doctor Anywhere.

The tests are part of a trial that started on August 8.

They will be funded by Gojek, and represent a joint effort between Gojek and Doctor Anywhere to help driver partners detect health conditions early and take charge of their health, and to support the Singapore government’s ongoing war on diabetes.

Driver-partners must have qualified for GoalBetter to be eligible for the trial.

To take the test, drivers can sign up with Gojek and visit any of Doctor Anywhere’s eight clinics islandwide.

Following the trial, Gojek will explore expanding the initiative to the rest of its driver-partners.

Gojek’s GoalBetter driver benefits programme was launched in April, 2019.

Nearly 150 driver-partners have been using telehealth services on Doctor Anywhere, on the back of Gojek’s partnership with Doctor Anywhere, a healthcare app that offers a holistic range of health and wellness services on a single, integrated platform.

Singapore-based DocDoc which positions itself as “the world’s first patient intelligence company”, has today announced the close of an institutional capital raise of US$13 million, bringing the total funding the company has raised to date to US$24.6 million.

“We are excited to be moving from strength to strength with solid support from our investors and an ecosystem of exceptional partners. We believe in the potential of our patient intelligence platform to revolutionize and redefine the delivery of healthcare,” said Cole Sirucek, DocDoc Co-founder and CEO.

“We are excited to be moving from strength to strength with solid support from our investors and an ecosystem of exceptional partners. We believe in the potential of our patient intelligence platform to revolutionize and redefine the delivery of healthcare,” said Cole Sirucek, DocDoc Co-founder and CEO.

The financing was done on a convertible note and was led by Adamas Finance Asia Limited (ADAM), a London-listed investment company, alongside leading regional family offices, a fund managed by a global investment firm specialising in financial services and the Cyberport Macro Fund.

“Of course, we enable our partners to save money, boost engagement and delight their customers in measurable ways, but what is far more important is that we meaningfully help people. Real people with real problems. People who are uncertain or scared, people who know a lot or almost nothing about healthcare, and people who need a friend to help navigate an amazingly complex healthcare ecosystem. At DocDoc, we have created the solution we needed when we faced this situation. Our product is real as it comes from the purest of intention, the need for parents to protect their child. Our product is real as it is built by an uncompromising team who owns the importance of our mission,” commented Cole Sirucek, DocDoc Co-founder and CEO.

DocDoc’s AI-powered doctor discovery platform is reimagining the patient journey by building a patient-centric healthcare ecosystem that supports patients throughout the continuum of care and empowering them with readily digestible medical information to make well-informed healthcare decisions.

The proceeds raised will be used to support DocDoc’s market expansion and enhance its leading patient intelligence platform.

Founded in 2012, DocDoc is one of the earliest telemedicine platforms in Singapore.

Its current suite of product offerings includes doctor discovery, telemedicine, and cashless settlement.

Operating in eight countries, DocDoc boasts that it has built the largest network of doctors in Asia with over 23,000 doctors and 793 clinics and hospitals in its network.
