Quality HealthCare Medical Service Limited (“Quality HealthCare”), one of the largest providers of private healthcare services in Hong Kong, today announced its partnership with U.S.-based Silicon Valley company HealthTap, the world's first Health Operating System powered by a network of top interactive doctors and Artificial Intelligence. The partnership will transform customers’ healthcare experience and drive the digital revolution of the healthcare industry in Hong Kong.
HealthTap was founded in California’s Silicon Valley in 2010 with a mission to reinvent the way people everywhere take care of their health and wellbeing. The partnership in Hong Kong with Quality HealthCare will set a new standard for the local healthcare industry by transforming the way Quality HealthCare customers access primary healthcare services and by creating a delightful digital health experience. The new technology will enable Quality HealthCare customers to see a doctor quickly and manage their health information conveniently.
As a first step in this historic partnership, Quality HealthCare and HealthTap are today launching a new mobile App, which features a number of industry firsts in Hong Kong. The new Quality HealthCare mobile App offers new ways for people to see their doctor as well as enabling people to take better care of their health, from pre- to post-consultation and from physical to mental health needs.
Going forward, the companies are exploring to offer enhanced services such as an electronic payment system, real-time health dashboards that provide an immediate overview of a person’s health, and personalised healthcare information incorporating users’ medical profiles and records.
“This exciting partnership demonstrates Quality HealthCare’s commitment to taking the next leap in digital healthcare in Hong Kong,” said Dr. Joseph Soon, CEO of Quality HealthCare. “Quality HealthCare is the first pioneer medical provider in Hong Kong to successfully deploy the Health Operating System offered by HealthTap. We know in today’s digital era we need to offer customers access to the wide range of services we offer conveniently and quickly. We are excited to bring Silicon Valley expertise to our local healthcare system.”
Ron Gutman, Founder and CEO of HealthTap said, “Quality HealthCare has the longevity, quality, depth, and scale in traditional healthcare delivery to perfectly complement HealthTap’s digital health technology and user-experience expertise. HealthTap has become a successful global company serving millions everywhere by partnering with the top providers in each country in which we decide to build sustainable businesses. We are truly honored to be working with such a respected company as Quality HealthCare, and we are delighted at this opportunity to fulfill our mission and compassionately help the people of Hong Kong live healthier, happier, and longer lives.”
