KUALA LUMPUR (Feb 11): BookDoc, a medtech startup, is not only celebrating its third anniversary, but has also grown by leaps and bounds in recording 700 per cent growth and continues to spread its wings towards regional expansion.
In a statement today, Founder and BookDoc chief executive officer Datuk Chevy Beh said the growth was driven by discipline in financial management, alongside the recent signing of a multi-million million contract with a government agency for five years.
“The contract has not only turned our cash flow positive, but also paved a visible path for future sustainability and profitability,” he said.
BookDoc, which started as a business-to-consumer (b2c) player, has now ventured into both business-to-business (b2b) and business-to-government (b2g).
Beh said BookDoc is serving diversified customer segments such as insurance companies and over 20 corporate clients, while backed by various groups of investors from entrepreneurs to seasoned healthcare and insurance professionals, banker, regulators as well as ICT professionals.
“We are thrilled that there are another three to five big and highly significant deals in the pipeline within the next 12 months and the recent government contact which will operationalise in August will bring in an additional two million active users to our platform,” he added.
BookDoc, with a presence in Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Thailand and Indonesia, is an online platform that operates across the healthcare continuum, connecting patients to healthcare professionals anytime and anywhere, while incentivising all to stay active.
The BookDoc app is downloadable for free at the App Store or Google Play Store.
