“After working as a public hospital doctor for five years, I noticed a gap in the market for non-essential A&E visits, for minor cases such as coughs, colds and constipation. My team and I created Speedoc as a solution for patients to receive medical attention at any time of the day. Our goal is to be a health-tech company that helps shift advanced medical care ‘from the hospital to the home’, especially in light of Singapore’s ageing population, which may find it increasingly difficult to visit hospitals and clinics easily,” says Dr. Shravan Verma, CEO and Founder of Speedoc.

All are GPs at the moment while the startup looks for specialists in the areas of pediatrics, geriatrics and obstetrics.

Each housecall costs at S$150 (8am-8pm), S$200 (8pm-12am) and S$250 (12am-8pm).
