BookDoc-MIMS: Reliable Healthcare Development on-time and Anywhere

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia, July 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- BookDoc announces its partnership with MIMS, a leading healthcare publisher in Asia, Australia & New Zealand, in conjunction with the launch of the new "Health Info" feature which will be embedded in its "BookDoc" app. BookDoc users will now be kept up-to-date on health tips & news, provided by MIMS, which are timely, reliable, and country-specific wherever they are. 

MIMS, established in 1963, provides tools to empower healthcare communities, and is committed to the life-long learning needs of healthcare professionals and consumers. Originally, the preferred source of drug information, MIMS now provides decision support solutions, industry news and medical education to communities of general practitioners, specialist doctors, pharmacists, nurses and patients across 12 countries including Mainland China, India, Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong, and Australia.

"Health Info" marks BookDoc's enhancement to its mobile and web online healthcare ecosystem with timely health tips & news of various countries. This feature will allow users to obtain customised country-specific health alerts, health tips & development from reliable and authoritative sources, compiled and organised by MIMS. Users could benefit from immediate alerts on health emergencies like dengue fever, Zika virus or avian flu unique to certain countries or outbreak areas; and at the same time, e advised on longer-term lifestyle changes that are necessary in view of latest developments in relation to non-communicable diseases like cancer, obesity, and others.

"Prevention is better than cure. There is no short of information out there but to navigate through the information jungle and get to reliable sources for the latest update could be a challenge. This could be further complicated by language differences across border. Health Info is not a medical dictionary for diseases. It is a pro-active feature by BookDoc to increase public awareness on latest health alerts and development that warrant our due attention. For example, facial creams that are banned in Malaysia or Zika virus updates in Singapore. Timely action and prevention will save us a lot of trouble when you are at home or abroad", explained Dato' Chevy Beh, Founder and CEO of BookDoc.  

This development comes shortly after its partnership with TripAdvisor where users could access top 10 recommended restaurants and attractions around their health appointment locations; and BookDoc Activ which rewards users for maintaining high level of activity. All the features mentioned above are available through "BookDoc" app which is downloadable for free on Apple App Store (for iOS) and Google Play Store (for Android).
