“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).

Chevron Singapore, which operates the retail brand Caltex, has introduced Singapore’s first fuel payment app.

“As part of its new digital transformation, Chevron has opted for an agile approach to its first mobile payment solution, listening closely to user feedback and learning from industry best practices towards developing a minimum viable product for fuel payment,” said Chevron’s General Manager of Products for Singapore, Shahid Ahmed, when I chatted with him during the app’s launch.

The CaltexGO mobile payment app is the front-end of an integrated digital eco-system that offers cashless payments and helps consumers locate a service station, enjoy automatic loyalty LinkPoints collection, exclusive mobile offers, and electronic receipts at their fingertips.

CaltexGO responds to key consumer pinch points identified in the retail brand’s recent consumer insights analysis.

Chevron notes that refueling can be seen as a chore which drivers strive to mitigate.

Having to wait for a pump, long payment queues, and the complexity related to loyalty and payment systems were the top inconvenience grouses by drivers at service stations.

This ecosystem will be built on trust, which is a crucial success factor,” said Dr Siaw Tung Yeng, Founder & CEO, MaNaDr Mobile Health.

These providers include major pharmaceutical companies and key paramedical service providers such as Amgen, MundiPharma, OmniMed Healthcare (HomeCare), QuestLab etc.

Soft launched slightly more than a year ago, the concept has gained traction with the enrollment of 500 private clinics and 600 doctors (general practitioners, dentists & specialists) in Singapore and Australia serving a million patients through its MaNaDr app.

The growing patient database will enable big data analytics that empower doctors to track a patient’s condition to offer pre-emptive and pro-active healthcare.

The Dyson Pure Cool Link purifier fan automatically removes 99.95% of indoor allergens and pollutants as small as 0.1 microns from the air.

The new Dyson Pure Cool Link purifier fan uses a unique 360° Glass HEPA filter.

“We think it is polluted outside of our homes, but the air inside can be far worse. Dyson engineers focused on developing a purifier that automatically removes ultrafine allergens, odours and pollutants from the indoor air, feeding real time air quality data back to you,” says James Dyson, Inventor & Founder of Dyson.

This technology captures 99.95% of ultrafine allergens, odours and pollutants as small as 0.1µ from the air – keeping them in the filter.

Sensors inside the machine detect changes in conditions, before automatically adjusting airflow to maintain the target air quality.

The machine projects cleaner, purified air around the room evenly and quietly, purifying all year round and doubling up as a fan to cool you in the summer.

Dyson currently already has a Pure Cool purifier fan on the market.
