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.
