Thomson X, the digital arm of SGX-listed Thomson Medical Group, has formed a joint venture with Singapore’s leading telehealth provider WhiteCoat to launch a mobile application that will offer seamless and personalised online-to-offline healthcare services to meet the health and wellness needs of women and children.
Integrating WhiteCoat’s cutting-edge technology and virtual healthcare capabilities with Thomson Medical Group’s medical expertise and its network of hospitals and clinics, the one-stop app will be the first of its kind, focused on digitally enhancing the delivery of Thomson Medical’s brand of obstetrics and gynaecology and paediatric healthcare services to its patients.
When launched, the app will serve as the nexus for women at various stages of their lives, and their children to access virtual, clinic and home-based care in a comprehensive healthcare ecosystem, covering family planning, fertility and conception through to early childhood development. Besides complementing traditional face-to-face visits to the doctor, particularly during the ongoing pandemic, the app also aims to enhance the online-to-offline patient experience and optimise health outcomes.
Spearheading Technology Adoption in Healthcare
Thomson Medical Group operates one of the largest private maternity hospitals in Singapore that delivers a fifth of all babies in Singapore annually. Outside of the hospital, the Group also operates a satellite network of women’s and children’s clinics delivering its brand of care to patients across the island.
Through strategic partnerships, with digital health partners like WhiteCoat, TX aims to broaden accessibility to the Group’s doctors and services, delivering a holistic omni-channel healthcare experience to a wider patient base through telemedicine and other digital health technology offerings.
As the tech enabler of the Group, TX catalyses advancements in telemedicine, digital healthcare products and treatment methods to enhance and engage its patient base and increase revenue opportunities for the Group.
Thomson Medical said that paediatricians and paediatric services from all of its satellite paediatric centres have been onboarded to WhiteCoat’s current telemedicine platform before the launch of the dedicated obstetrics and paediatrics app in 2022.
