Docquity Partners with Indonesian Health Ministry to Recruit Doctors

Jul 2020

Singapore-based Docquity, described as South East Asia’s largest professional network of doctors, has partnered with the Indonesian Ministry of Health (MOH) and Ikatan Dokter Indonesia (IDI) to address the increase needs of doctors required to combat the COVID-19 pandemic. Through this partnership, Docquity will help with the recruitment and training volunteer medical professionals through its extensive series of courses, lectures, webinars and demonstrations done by senior medical experts. The app has a total of 85,000 Indonesian doctors registered on its platform since 2016.

Docquity has also been inducted into the Indonesian Telemedical Alliance (Atensi). About 667 general practitioners and 200 specialists have been recruited by the app since the beginning of June. Some doctors have been directed to help in Kemayoran Makeshift COVID-19 hospitals in Jakarta.

Founded in 2015, Docquity has a presence in Indonesia, Malaysia, Vietnam, Thailand and The Philippines with over 200,000 doctors onboard.  It functions like a social network and is an invite-only platform that validates users before giving them access. The company is supported by numerous medical associations across the region, who have invited their membership of doctors to join the community. The app is backed by investment from Itochu Corp from Japan, Singapore Press Holdings, Genesia Ventures from Japan, Spiral Ventures from Japan, Zuellig Pharma and United States’ Purvi Capital.
