We have been hearing a lot from Singapore-based health portal, DoctorPage. They started operations (pun intended) last September, hit a milestone of getting more than 12,500 doctors and dentists on their listings, and launched a healthcare concierge service last week. Of course, there is also a new competitor on board – CompareClinic.
And it sounds even better when they now announce that they are inviting Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) practitioners to come onboard. Hong Yi TCM Healthcare, a multi-physician facility, is the first to join DoctorPage, with their aim of increasing its online presence and reaching out to younger, more affluent and tech-savvy consumers.
DoctorPAge CEO Max-F. Scheichenost stressed their targeting a younger demographic with this move. “Traditional Chinese Medicine has gained much popularity in recent times with well-heeled internet users of a younger demographic and who are keen to explore alternative therapies. We are excited to have our first TCM practitioners on board and look forward to helping them grow their practice significantly this year.”
