“We want to provide greater value where for example, a diabetic patient who has regular follow-ups with his or her endocrinologist can receive better and continuous management of care by using this platform. We believe continuous care reduces many medical complications, which is one of the reasons why we wanted to launch HiDoc. The platform will be a bridge between patients and specialists,” explained Dr. Christina Low, CEO, and Co-Founder of HiDoc.

HiDoc aims to deliver the diagnosis within 24 hours or instantly through video conferencing – seeking to improve the quality and efficiency of follow-up healthcare via its app on both iOS and Android mobile devices.

Using HiDoc, patients will be able to upload their health records and have access to healthcare services, especially for overseas patients who are considering treatment in Singapore.
