Bayer Malaysia has launched a telehealth platform dedicated to endometriosis, in collaboration with Endometriosis Association of Malaysia (MyEndosis) and DoctorOnCall, a digital health platform by Health Digital Technologies.
"With a long history in women's health, we are delighted to be able to partner with MyEndosis and DoctorOnCall to encourage tech-savvy women to leverage teleconsultations to seek help on this medical condition", said Bayer Pharmaceuticals' Country Division head for Singapore, Malaysia and Brunei, Yamini Prakash.
Endometriosis, a condition that affects one in 10 women worldwide, occurs when the endometrium grows outside the womb in other tissues or organs.
The new telehealth service will provide online consultations with obstetrician-gynaecologists from DoctorOnCall. For a three-month period from June, free teleconsultations will be offered to patients.
