Go-Jek Integrates with Medicine Delivery Service HaloDoc

As reported by TechWireAsia (found here):

Go-Jek continues to spin out its app economy, as the company announces its medicine delivery service, Go-Med, would come under the purview of HaloDoc, a medtech startup with ties to Go-Jek and big pharma player Mensa Group.

It appears Go-Jek is following Tencent’s strategy of slowly populating China’s tech ecosystem with a family of related apps built on top of the company’s proprietary payment systems, though there are subtle differences. Go-Jek isn’t pulling everything under a single app interface, choosing instead to parcel out control over each service to various subsidiaries.

As reported by Tech in Asia, Go-Med has been integrated with HaloDoc, which managed to drive down the pick-up rate of medicine from an average of 44 minutes to an impressive 30 seconds within order time.

Go-Med users will now be sent directly to HaloDoc, which Go-Jek invested in last year alongside some other healthcare-related acquisitions. By fusing Go-Med with HaloDoc, delivery times have experienced a lot of downward pressure as users and pharmacies no longer need to waste time confirming orders and checking supplies.

The full integration of Go-Med with Halo Doc now allows users’ orders to be correlated directly with HaloDoc’s extensive network of pharmacies – rather than as offers to pharmacies to respond to – and provide deliverers with the location of the nearest pharmacy to collect the medication.

Though some of Go-Jek’s spin-offs haven’t been integrated with Go-Jek’s payment platform, the process is on its way, HaloDoc CEO Jonathan Sudharta told Tech in Asia.

Be sure though, this is only the beginning for Go-Jek, who has its eye on conquering Indonesia through their app network, allowing consumers to buy goods and services through a linked ecosystem of apps. In doing so, Go-Jek solves many of Indonesia’s significant logistical problems, caused by large urban sprawls and the notorious traffic jams that plague the country.

“The spinning out of Go-Life was done because it addresses a different market segment,” Go-Jek chief of human resources Monica Oudang told Tech in Asia.

“For Go-Med, it was more due to the fact we want to have a better user experience through the HaloDoc app.”

With Powerful Backers, HaloDoc Wants To Improve Access To Healthcare In Indonesia

As reported in Tech in Asia on 9 September 2016 by Nadine Freischlad. More details can be found here.

Indonesia’s healthcare system leaves a lot to be desired, especially in rural areas where qualified doctors and medicine are hard to find. Some believe taking healthcare online can help solve the problem. Everyone could access basic health information, consult with doctors, and order medicine online.

A number of startups want to make this a reality. Sites like Klikdokter, Alodokter, Prosehat, Tanyadok, Udoctor, and Dokter.id each offer combinations of health advice, doctor and hospital reviews, one-on-one online consultations, or medicine delivery.

And there’s HaloDoc, a relatively new player with big plans to improve all facets of online healthcare. The app launched early this year.

Today, HaloDoc announced that it’s raised money from Singaporean private equity firm Clermont and NSI Ventures, an early-stage investment fund part of North Star Group.
