The Covid 19 pandemic has caused a big impact on our daily social lives, economic, and health issues.

Technology Meets Health Care Services
Carepool Asia - a comprehensive digital health SaaS based platform, aims to:
CareConsult - a multidisciplinary tele-health solution
"Carepool Asia aims to provide an affordable, flexible, and convenient SaaS-based multi-disciplinary telehealth. While anyone can sign up as a free member, our current target customers are families and companies that are searching for telehealth solution for their employees or their loved ones especially during this crucial time," says Alex Lee, the CEO/Founder of Carepool Asia.
"Our focus now is on addressing public health needs and to ensure optimal access of delivering primary health care (PHC) through low-cost, high-impact telehealth, delivered by our multi-disciplinary team. We conducted research that out of 10 general doctor visits, at least 20% can be done online."
"Our unlimited telehealth consultation services have gained interest from many companies and families, as our module is based on the number of subscribed users, where the core team of medical professionals will be your personal "family or company doctor".
Working together to Care for You
Carepool Asia team consists of GP doctors, dietitians, and mental health consultants. Hence, Carepool Asia telehealth does not focus only on physical health, but also provides mental health and dietician services.
Sitra Panirsheeluam, an experienced behavioural psychologist, who is also a partner consultant in Carepool Asia, believes that telehealth can be more effective consulting patients at the comfort of their homes.
"Patients who are anxious, depressed or individuals with disabilities are facing challenging time to go to mental health facilities during this pandemic. Therefore, telehealth is very important to allow the patients to stay connected with their medical psychologists through the right channel."
Dr Foo Ching Choon, an experienced GP doctor of Carepool Asia, believes that Telehealth can reduce the pressure of the medical health system and health workers' exposure to the coronavirus on-site. "By engaging Carepool Asia, it is also convenient, saves time, yet maintains the quality, safety and assurance by a team of experienced medical practitioners."
"Telehealth makes dietitian's consultation easily accessible, and now you can receive the same expert-level, personalized nutrition advice from us at the comfort of your homes," says Ng Kar Foo, a professional dietitian consultant partner in Carepool Asia.
