There is no guarantee that we can always be prepared for whatever life throws at us. This is particularly true when it comes to sickness. You have probably experienced it a few times. You get to bed at night feeling well and then wake up the following morning feeling under the weather. What’s worse is your medicine cabinet is empty. Not to worry, Speedoc Singapore (https://speedoc.com/sg) can get medicine delivered to your home fast and easy.
Here are 10 things that this amazing mobile medical health app can do for you.
- Book a doctor’s consultation without leaving your home
Getting a consultation with a doctor in a clinic or a hospital can be tiring. You would have to wait in line and, since consultations do not have a specific time frame per patient, there is no telling how many minutes you have to spend waiting for your turn to be called. One statistic published in February of 2022 showed that the longest waiting time for a doctor’s consultation in a polyclinic was 106 minutes. Imagine waiting in line that long while nursing flu. You would wish you hadn’t stepped out of the house and just stayed in bed. With Speedoc, you can efficiently book a doctor’s consultation without even having to leave your bed and according to your preferred time! Just a few clicks in the mobile app and you can set an online consultation or a home-visit with a doctor.
- Book a nurse to provide medical care at home
Some medical procedures and care services do not necessarily need doctors. You can instead book nursing care through the Speedoc app when you need assistance with:
- IV administration of antibiotics or hydration
- Back pain
- Blood tests
- Changing of NGT Tube
- Changing of urine catheter
- COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Test
- COVID-19 PCR Swab Test
- Joint and muscle injury, pain, and sprain
- Wound dressing
Speedoc’s nurses are certified and licensed with the Singapore Nursing Board. They are equipped with medical tools that are necessary to deliver the best care for patients at home. Even when the appointment is done, communication between patient and nurse can be done through the Speedoc app. This feature enables our nurses to continue to monitor the condition of their patients following a house call.
- Book an ambulance
Speedoc’s Ambulance-on-Demand service is ideal for transporting patients with non-emergency conditions to a hospital, hospice, or a nursing home. The usual waiting time for private ambulance requested via the 1777 hotline can take as long as 2 hours. With more than 20 ambulances in their fleet, you can expect a Speedoc partner ambulance to arrive at your home within 30 to 45 minutes after booking through the app.
- Get 24/7 medical care and health services
Speedoc’s health professionals are available for dispatch 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and even on holidays. You would not have to worry about waiting for the sun to rise to consult with a doctor as the Speedoc app can connect you to a partner doctor or nurse closest to your location that can attend to your needs at any time of the day.
- Get medicine delivered to your home
If you are too sick to go out of the house and buy medicine, a Speedoc doctor can do a house call. House call doctors provide a consultation for 45 minutes for one patient. They can also prescribe and provide medicines instantly. In cases when medicines are not available on-the-spot, you can avail of the 3-hour medicine delivery which is serviced without a fee. Do note that only the delivery is without a fee and the prescribed medications are charged separately.
- Get your child boosted at home
Parents who have infants and small children may find it challenging to bring their children to visit a doctor’s clinic for consultations or vaccinations. Aside from the preparations needed, such as readying everything your child’s needs in one bag, there is also a high risk that your child can be exposed to viruses present in the doctor’s clinic or inside the hospitals. To make your child’s health check-up and immunisation hassle free, schedule one to be done at home with the Speedoc app. You also won’t have to worry about losing your baby’s vaccination records as these are kept updated in the app’s online registry, just a click away whenever you need it.
- Get excellent hospital care at home
Speedoc’s Hospital-to-Home (H2H) pilot programme successfully provided post-discharge hospital care for patients inside their homes. In the H2H programme, a patient receives mobile medical services at home. These services are of the same calibre as those provided by healthcare professionals in the hospitals.
- Receive treatments for chronic conditions
Patients with chronic conditions often require repeated hospital visits or doctor’s consultations to monitor their health condition. This routine of going to and fro a medical facility can be exhausting and the patient can be exposed to other health hazards. To make things bearable, patients can receive treatments by booking a Chronic Disease Home Management (CDHM) slot using the Speedoc app. The CDHM programme covers doctor and nurse house calls, online consultations, lab tests, and reminders for medical refill. The programme is customisable basing on a patient’s health condition. Patients who have chronic conditions like diabetes, high cholesterol, hypertension, and thyroid disorder can benefit from this at-home medical treatments.
- Schedule and undergo a health screening at home
Speedoc offers various health screening packages that can be done at the comfort of your own home or wherever you are located. Some of the tests included in these packages are blood tests, cancer screening, HIV test, liver function test, STD screening, and urinalysis among others.
- Schedule an appointment for your loved ones
Speedoc mobile app allows users to set doctor’s appointments not only for them, but also for family or friends. This is helpful specifically when you have elder family members, little children, or those with vulnerable health at home who may find commuting to clinics and hospitals to see a doctor difficult or risky.
