The Doctor Anywhere Vietnam JSC and the Bao Minh Insurance Corporation signed a strategic cooperation agreement on September 10 to bring the best healthcare experience to the latter’s customers in Vietnam.

A comprehensive digital healthcare service will bring a suite of online and offline healthcare services, including video consultation and medication prescriptions from doctors, an online health and wellness shopping marketplace, home-based healthcare services, and more, all on one single platform.

Thanks to the superior utilities brought by technology, the Doctor Anywhere application will transform traditional healthcare consultation while still ensuring that customers are able to gain full insurance benefits.

The collaboration between Doctor Anywhere, Singapore’s leading tech-led health and wellness platform, and Bao Minh, one of the largest insurance groups in Vietnam, is expected to create a series of breakthrough products and services in the field of healthcare for Vietnamese consumers.

Millions of Bao Minh policyholders will be covered under the program, with online consultation covered by the insurer for the first time.

“Bao Minh will play a role as a pioneer insurer who provides direct payments for online health consultation, affirming that it is always focused on the interests of its customers and willing to innovate to increase service quality and catch up trends in information technology,” said Mr. Le Van Thanh, General Director of Bao Minh.

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

“We are thrilled to establish our footprint in Vietnam, one of the fastest-growing developing economies in Asia,” said Mr. Lim Wai Mun, Founder and CEO of Doctor Anywhere. “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 a model for case studies in other Asian healthcare markets.”

“We are on a mission to improve healthcare standards in Vietnam,” said Mr. Nguyen Thanh Phan, CEO of Doctor Anywhere Vietnam. “Since our launch in Q2 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 delivering convenient healthcare solutions tailored to the needs of the Vietnamese people.”
