Wing Bank and First Womentech Asia join forces to support health services in Cambodia

Now users of ‘e-Health MyCLNQ’ by First Womentech Asia can use Wing’s digital payment service to record and settle financial transactions.

First Womentech Asia Co Ltd and Wing Bank (Cambodia) Plc have officially launched a partnership to support health service providers in Cambodia by using “e-Health MyCLNQ”, which allows them to access convenient digital financial services for daily transactions with patients.

Through the partnership, nearly 200 private and public hospitals and clinics across Cambodia using Peth Yoeung and e-Health MyCLNQ by First Womentech Asia will be able to access the Wing digital payment system to settle and record transactions instantly, conveniently and safely.

“Patients will no longer need to worry about carrying physical cash with them when seeking medical treatment during their moment of emergency. All they need is a Wing Account on their smartphone.

“They can settle medical bills with just a few swipes on their smartphone and scan the QR code at the payment terminals,” said Han Peng Kwang, CEO of Wing Bank.

QR payment is now not only a global trend for a secure and convenient experience, but it also can help to prevent patients from handling physical cash that may be contaminated with germs and viruses, which is particularly important during this era of Covid-19.

A brand new digital healthcare ecosystem, e-Health MyCLNQ was established through a partnership venture between Peth Yoeung – a cloud-based hospital management platform created by First Womentech Asia – and Singaporean healthtech company Ssivix Lab.

The software facilitates hospitals, service providers and Cambodian patients in offering and receiving health consultations and treatment digitally via a mobile device in a low-cost and secure fashion.

Patients can contact doctors and schedule consultations and treatment across Cambodia, as well as in Singapore and India.

Socheat Bin, co-founder of First Womentech Asia and country manager of e-Health MyCLNQ: “For a year now we have been committedly working through many obstacles with our partners Wing Bank and Singaporean healthtech company Ssivix Lab to establish e-Health MyCLNQ, an internationally extensive ecosystem for health consultations and treatment, as well as payment services operated on a mobile device.”

Limsan Pong, founder and CEO of First Womentech Asia, said: “We believe our system will make a significant impact in facilitating and advancing the healthcare sector, and people’s health and wellbeing.

“This collaboration is to address the needs and challenges that healthcare providers and patients have encountered during the Covid-19 pandemic by creating a digital pathway to communicate with one another and find hospitals or healthcare professionals for services and treatment.”

Anwar Rafique, CEO of Ssivix Lab, said: “The life sciences industry is facing transformational changes. Healthcare is switching more to preventive medicine and an outcome-based economic model.

“When patients have access regularly to their own health information, the hope is that they will be empowered to take care of themselves as they’ll better understand wellbeing and be more engaged in self-care decisions.”

Both First Womentech Asia and Wing Bank are combining their own specialities in the digital and technology space to supporting patients in allowing them to access the highest quality healthcare services.

First Womentech Asia successfully launched Peth Yeung to support the healthcare ecosystem, rolling out their software in nearly 200 public and private hospitals and clinics, securing medical records and patient data, and streamlining operating processes.

Having partnered with almost all the leading banks and micro finance institutions in Cambodia, users can download the Wing Money App and check to see if their bank or micro finance institution of choice is already connected to Wing. They can then transfer money from their bank account to the Wing Wallet with just a few clicks and carry out digital transactions immediately.

Wing Bank is widely known for its extensive presence across Cambodia, with more than 10,000 Wing Cash Xpress agents and the multi-functional Wing Money App.
