Digital healthcare venture struck

Singapore's Ssivix Lab Pte Ltd and local healthtech start-up First Womentech Asia Co Ltd signed a venture partnership to support Cambodia’s healthcare service providers with on-demand telehealth consulting services, with the aim of expanding throughout the Mekong region and to other Asian countries late this year.

Founded in May 2017, Ssivix Lab recently launched its MyCLNQ mobile app, a one-stop healthcare ecosystem platform that provides health solutions in Cambodia and the region, with remote monitoring to keep patients and healthcare practitioners connected and up-to-date on patient care.

First Womentech Asia is behind Peth Yoeung, a cloud-based hospital management system that aims to smoothen hospital operations and protect medical records and patient data from unauthorised access.

The system is also connected to an app that, among other things, provides direct links to medical services in Cambodia and allows users to schedule appointments.

Pong Limsan, co-founder and CEO of First Womentech Asia, said the two companies would combine their services to provide partner clinics and hospitals with a valuable system to consult and treat patients, and remain uninterrupted by the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic.

“Through this collaboration, patients in Cambodia can access cross-border health consulting services, especially overseas doctors consulting from Singapore, India and other Asian” countries, she said.

Ssivix Lab co-founder and CEO Anwar Rafique said the partnership was as “exciting opportunity” to carry out a shared healthcare vision in the Kingdom, as part of regional expansion plans.

He said he was confident that MyCLNQ would provide Cambodians with “smarter, more convenient, and affordable” access to hospitals and medical services. “This AI enabled ecosystem can provide medication services from doctor’s wherever they are and they can also choose to select local or overseas affordable healthcare services.”

He emphasised that MyCLNQ is not merely a communication system that provides medical services, but rather a system of integrated family healthcare services designed to meet essential needs.
