WeDoctor helps BookDoc expand into China


The online health technology platform providers BookDoc and WeDoctor will offer 24/7 real-time online medical services.

BookDoc and WeDoctor will explore partnerships in medical tourism and devise strategies to reach out to medical tourists around the globe. The two companies will also leverage on their technology, know-how and local knowledge to expand borderless healthcare. The key target market is potential medical tourists in China.

BookDoc has a presence in Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Hong Kong and Thailand. It is an online platform that operates across the healthcare continuum connecting patients to healthcare professionals anytime and anywhere, while incentivising all to stay active.

BookDoc has established an integrated online ecosystem for local and overseas health travellers. The ecosystem allows users to search and book healthcare professionals anytime and anywhere, and integrates seamlessly with navigation (Google Map, Waze), transport (Grab, Uber, AirAsia), accommodation (Agoda, Airbnb) and recommended restaurants and attractions (TripAdvisor) for a hassle-free and enjoyable experience to healthcare appointments. 

Through BookDoc Activ, users can earn rewards and discounts from retail partners and service providers for maintaining a healthy and active lifestyle. 

Based in China, WeDoctor is a global medical and health technology platform. Apart from online consultations, WeDoctor’s other divisions include cloud services, insurance, and pharmaceuticals.

Seeking an IPO in Hong Kong, the TenCent backed groups seeks to raise US$900 million.

BookDoc believes that growth prospects are positive for the medical tourism sector over the long term, underpinned by a demographic transition towards an increasingly globalised world characterised by an ageing and growing upper-middle income population. It expects Southeast Asia's medical tourism to continue to experience rampant growth, post COVID-19 recovery, driven by quality healthcare delivery services, competitive rates, and reputable medical expertise.
