With the Doctor Anywhere App, users can video-consult a doctor on their phone and get medication delivered to them within three hours in the city. This partnership is expected to bring significant changes to the healthcare landscape in Vietnam

Doctor Anywhere is the most comprehensive digital healthcare service to be launched in Vietnam, bringing a suite of online and offline healthcare services, including doctor video-consultation and medication prescription, online health and wellness shopping marketplace, home-based healthcare services, and more, all on one single platform to the people in Vietnam. Thanks to the superior utilities brought by technology, the Doctor Anywhere application will transform the way health consultation is done while ensuring that customers would be able to gain full insurance benefits.

The collaboration between Doctor Anywhere and Bao Minh is expected to create a series of breakthrough products and services in the field of healthcare for Vietnamese consumers. Millions of insured Bao Minh customers will be covered under this programme. Following this collaboration, for the first time, online consultation is covered by Bao Minh Insurance.

Le Van Thanh, general director and member of Bao Minh’s Board of Directors highly appreciated the tie-up with Doctor Anywhere, “Bao Minh will play the role as a pioneer insurer who provides direct payment for online health consultation, affirming that Bao Minh always focuses on the interests of customers and is willing to innovate to increase service quality and catch up with the trend of information technology achievements in the 4.0 era."

This is a crucial milestone in the healthcare ecosystem of Vietnam. With the power of technology and innovation, healthcare services can be better distributed in the country, easing the current resource constraints on hospitals and doctors, and make quality healthcare services more accessible and affordable for all Vietnamese.

Lim Wai Mun, founder and CEO of Doctor Anywhere, stated that, “We are thrilled to establish a foothold in Vietnam, one of the fastest-growing developing economies in Asia. With our partnership with Bao Minh, we are confident and optimistic that we can achieve our vision of better healthcare delivery in Vietnam and become the model for case study in other Asian healthcare markets.”

On the same note, CEO of Doctor Anywhere Vietnam, Nguyen Thanh Phan, shared that, “We are on a mission to improve healthcare standards in Vietnam. Since our launch in the second quarter of 2019, we’ve received tremendous interest and support from key decision makers in the healthcare sector. In just two months, we have established our presence in the business hubs of Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi, with plans to roll out more clinics and pharmacies in key cities in the upcoming months."

"With this landmark agreement with Bao Minh, Doctor Anywhere will be able to strengthen our commitment to deliver convenient healthcare solutions tailored to the needs of the Vietnamese people,” he said.
