Samitivej Hospital Group, a private hospital in Thailand with a network of eight hospitals and owned by Bangkok Dusit Medical Services (BDMS), recently announced the launch of its one-stop Virtual Hospital app, offering 3 key services:
Teleconsultation – a remote telemedicine consultation service that provides round-the-clock Medical advice via a video call with Samitivej’s doctors and nurses.
Test@Home – patients can have their blood samples taken in the comfort of their home and blood samples will be sent to the laboratory immediately.
Medicine Delivery – medication will be delivered to patients with absolute data security as Samitivej adheres to the data protection standards mandated by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).
Samitivej Hospital Group teamed up with six leading companies to launch the virtual hospital services: Advanced Info Service (AIS: Thailand’s leading telco), Line Thailand, Muang Thai Life Assurance, Siam Commercial Bank, Sansiri and SCG Cement-Building.
There is also a Samitivej Virtual Hospital control room located at Samitivej Srinakarin Hospital that has been designed with the specific purpose of enhancing the Samitivej Virtual Hospital experience. There are plans to expand the Virtual Hospital service to BNH Hospital in the future as well.
