Dental Focus International (www.smilesdfi.com) partners with GetDoc (www.GetDoc.co), a member of the Jireh Group, to enable wider and better public access to its 18 Dental clinics island-wide. Mr Woon Shung Toon, Founder and CEO of Jireh Group says: “GetDoc is an e-platform constantly connecting a network of reputable healthcare professionals to people to deliver a simple, connected experience that patients deserve. At any time, patients can search and find a clinic in a suitable location and simply book the dentist on GetDoc mobile app. Best of all, this is synced to their calendar; patients get reminders and reduce the possibility of them missing their appointments. It saves time and makes it easier for busy people.”
Dr. Sherman Ong, Chief Operating Officer at Dental Focus had decided that it was time to put the appointment booking power back into the hands of the patient. “In practice, whenever a patient calls to make an appointment, it’s a manual and rather time-consuming process on top of having to manage their calls being unanswered during peak periods or after operating hours. Now with Getdoc, patients get to see which day and time would suit their schedule immediately and make the appointment booking accordingly. This convenience offered to our patients is something Dental Focus is looking forward to when the platform is fully rolled out in their clinics. Reminders programmed to be sent to the patient’s mobile phone save the company telecommunication cost, but above all, it improves the productivity of our staff who can then focus on their tasks at hand.”
Jireh Group was established in December 2015, with the aim of adding value and enriching lives through mobility solutions by delivering a better healthcare experience and empowering everyone to manage their own – and their loved one’s – healthcare. Says Founder and CEO, Woon Shung Toon: “I observed that there are many inconveniences for patients who had to endure long waiting times to see a doctor and in many cases, in a waiting room filled with other sick people. Everyone’s time is precious and people need to respect that. By allowing patients to book an appointment and arrive at the appointed time, patients gain back the control of their time thereby improving the patient experience.”
To date, GetDoc is in more than 100 clinics in Singapore and 500 clinics in Malaysia which includes General Practitioners, Dental clinics, Medical and Dental Specialists and Therapists.
