Singapore-based company SmartRx Pte. Ltd has teamed up with healthcare group Minmed to launch the nation’s first Telemedicine Clinic at the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD). The clinic offers round-the-clock tele-consultation services with Minmed doctors, along with prescription drug dispensing services. The innovative clinic comprises two sections, including a private consultation pod equipped with vital signs monitoring capabilities, and a drug dispensing machine. The machine dispenses medication after patients enter a unique six-digit security code provided through the Minmed Connect app. Patients of the Telemedicine Clinic can complete their visits up to five times faster compared to traditional physical clinics, saving an estimated two hours.

Public hospitals' accident and emergency (A&E) are typically characterised by long queues while private clinics have limited operating hours. In more remote locations, basic medical aid is almost non-existent. These conditions may soon be coming to an end – at least for Singapore.

Our vending machine currently puts on sale some of the most sought-after Chinese medicine in the institution to provide greater convenience for the public to purchase the medicine as an alternative to purchasing them from the counter. This will help to ease the waiting time for the buyers and reduce the workload on the counter staff. In addition, since the buying process at the machine is very simple and totally self-serviced, buyers can get the medicines they need even when the counter staff is away and not available.
At present, this machine only supports NETS payment. Since majority of the users in Singapore have access to NETS and are familiar with using NETS to make payment, buyers will not have any problems paying for their purchases at the machine and will find it very easy and convenient to use the machine.
The machine is currently located at Singapore Chung Hwa Medical Institution HQ at Toa Payoh.
So if you happen to be around the vicinity, do pop by at the institution and check out our cool machine!

On 19 June 2020, Mr Tong Ping Heng, Founder and CEO of Aeras Medical, was specially invited to speak at a webinar organized by Marine Port of Authority (MPA) and Singapore Shipping Association (SSA) on the topic "Building Resilience and Accelerating Digitisation As One Maritime Singapore". Mr Tong, with his almost 30 years of medical and life science industries experience, gave useful insights on how technologies can be used to enhance healthcare services in the maritime industry.
An example cited by Mr Tong is the hugely successful remote monitoring trial that Aeras Medical had conducted with a shipping company in an ocean going ship supported by MPA under their PIER71 programme, which gives the crew and the shipping company a piece of mind over their crew's health while out at sea. Mr Tong also shared on how quickly Aeras Medical had responded to the industry's needs especially in the recent COVID-19 situation. In response to MPA's circular sent out on 18 June 2020 to allow telemedicine in the issuing of fit-to-travel certificate especially for crew disembarking their ship to go home, Aeras Medical was able to rapidly leverage on their SmartRM Solution (Smart Remote Monitoring) and establish a partnership with Impact Health, a company helmed by maritime veteren Mr Michael Chia, and tap on their network of medical professionals and shipping agents, to offer fully managed teleconsult and fit-to-travel certificates issuance services to the shipping companies.
It's an exciting time for remote healthcare services in the maritime industry.
