Doctor Anywhere was founded in 2015 and launched in October 2017.

The common flu and fever are just some of the minor illnesses that warrant a visit down to a clinic, and the time spent just waiting to see a doctor could be time spent resting.

The digital healthcare platform provides easy accessibility to health and wellness solutions through video consultations on its mobile app.

It currently has three features – general practitioners, lactation, and medical aesthetics. A look at their website also shows an additional service for mental wellness.

After a consultation with the doctor, all the patient has to do is rest and wait for medication and e-documents, like e-MC, to be delivered to him/her.

One consultation costs a flat fee of S$20. Medicines are charged separately and will be delivered to patients within three hours.

The app is backed by investors such as Patrick Chong who is CEO and Chairman of Lux Asia, and Fiona Bartholomeusz who is Managing Director of Formul8, according to this.

Doctor Anywhere has over 6,000 users and more than 30 doctors on the platform.
