Malaysian healthtech startup BookDoc announced its expansion to the Indonesian market through a partnership with Siloam Hospitals Group.
The startup first mentioned of its plan to expand to Indonesia in June 2017, when it raised an undisclosed funding round led by locally based conglomerate the Hamami family.
Indonesia will be the fifth market the startup is operating in, following Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong, and Thailand.
“We are indeed honoured to be given the opportunities to work with Siloam Hospitals Group, the leading healthcare group in Indonesia. Since the Hamami Family invested into BookDoc last year, we have been actively seeking out business partners to replicate and adapt our business model to suit the largest economy in Southeast Asia,” said BookDoc FOunder & CEO Dato’ Chevy Beh in a press statement.
BookDoc is an integrated online ecosystem for local and overseas health travellers to search and book healthcare professionals.
Founded in October 2015, it also runs the BookDoc Activ module which rewards users for implementing a healthy lifestyle.
Prior to this partnership, it has secured partnership with hospital groups in the markets it operates in, such as National
Heart Center (IJN), Sime Darby Healthcare, and KPJ Healthcare (Malaysia); NTUC, Thompson and Q&M Dental (Singapore); Adventist Hospital, Quality Healthcare, and Townhealth (Hong Kong); and Bumrungrad Hospital (Thailand).
As one of the largest privately owned hospital group in Indonesia, Siloam Hospitals Group claimed to have “more than” 500 general practitioners; 2,200 specialists; with 9,000 nurses, allied health, and support staff.
