The telehealth segment in Malaysia has long made its presence, with a blueprint first established in 1997, the segment was part of the nation’s goals to develop the healthcare industry.
However, being in a highly regulated space, the particular segment had not made any significant strides for years. But things have changed ever since. More players such as Teleme and ClicknCare have penetrated the segment offering telemedicine services, expanding the virtual healthcare segment for Malaysians.
One particular player, dubbed as the nation’s first online telehealth platform, DoctorOnCall has since come a long way. First established in 2016, the platform underwent a transformation, from a platform catering to curiosities on non-communicable diseases to vouching for the progress of telehealth services in Malaysia.
