(Hong Kong – 3 May, 2022) With the rise of the digital lifestyle and enhanced anti-epidemic awareness, Hong Kongers are now more conscious of their health condition than ever before, accelerating the need for convenient medical services among the public. In view of this, China Mobile Hong Kong (CMHK) announces the launch of “Dr. HK”, an online doctor consultation and medical app providing all-around online and offline services, with features including electronic health records, online appointment for outpatient clinics, video consultation and medicine delivery. Dr. HK is jointly developed by CMHK and Heals, the largest digital healthcare platform in Hong Kong. Whilst Dr. HK is equipped to tackle the pandemic with smart, low-touch solution, it aspires to service a broader population in the Greater Bay Area with home care and chronic disease management in the long run.

 

4 major features - Online-offline Accessiblity to Care

  1. Easy access to search for doctors’ profiles

With Dr. HK’s real-time connection with network clinics, users can now easily view real-time, dynamic status of clinic queues and opening times to search for the most suitable doctor and location for their needed medical support, thus saving the hassle of inquiring about clinics’ availability. This feature is particularly useful in times of pandemic when clinic opening hours are not as stable.

 

  1. Video consultation with doctor for timely treatments

Dr. HK also provides remote video consultation services, where doctors will conduct online diagnosis and dispensing of medication, aiding patients who are at home with timely medical support, especially for those with mobility problems, the elderly, and children, or patients who have been tested positive for COVID-19 and not suitable to leave home.

 

  1. Flexible medical support with extended clinic service hours

Outpatient clinics usually operate during the daytime, which may not be convenient for some who are seeking medical attention at night. Dr. HK has extended service hours until 9pm, making first-line medical support more flexible for patients in times of need.

 

  1. Medication Delivery in 4 hours at the earliest: One-stop Medicial Solution at Your Doorstep

Dr. HK patient apps offer one-stop virtual care solution from appointment booking to video consultation and payment, followed by home delivery of medication on the same day, with the additional option for express delivery in 4 hours at the earliest1, users can now receive consultation and medication while staying home. The low-touch process not only reduces the risk of cross-infection, but also enhances the safety of medical staff.


Video consultation fee starts from $338. Free of charge for first 500 users

Dr. HK’s video consultation fee starts from $338, which includes video consultation, 3-day medication, and delivery by SF Express. To provide support under the pandemic, users of Dr. HK may now enjoy below offers:

  • The first 500 users who install the app and complete the registration will receive a complimentary anti-epidemic pack, which includes three rapid test kits and five types of general medicine, effective for soothing fever, common cold, and nasal allergy-related symptoms.
  • The first 500 users seeking video doctor consultation will receive waivers of all fees, including the consultation, 3-day medication, and delivery by SF Express.
