oDoc, Sri Lanka’s largest digital health company, has revolutionised the industry by their innovative range of premium digital healthcare offerings targeted towards individuals and corporates around the country.
With the uncontrollable surge of Covid-19 cases across Sri Lanka, virtual doctor channelling has become increasingly popular and practical, leading to an exponential rise in the number of people using oDoc. The range of services include video consulting a doctor, home delivery of medications as well as at-home lab testing.
oDoc has seen impressive growth in 1H2021 with a 70% increase in the number of consultations and an 149% increase in new users on the app. oDoc’s mobile pharmacy, oPharma, has seen significant traction as consumers opted to avoid visits to local pharmacies, with a remarkable 3x increase in revenue. oDoc’s mobile lab unit has been widely appreciated during these times leading to a 106% increase in revenue.
Furthermore, oDoc has partnered with 9 more corporates this month, including Standard Chartered Bank, Lalan Group, Brandix and Accenture, to provide healthcare services to their employees. Employees will have unlimited access to GPs and specialist doctors without ever having to leave their home or the office. They will also be a part of oDoc’s exclusive loyalty program where they can enjoy a host of benefits from hospitals, fitness partners such as Barressential and Athletes Unleashed and healthy meal options, such as Health House, Fitmeals and Cafe Kumbuk.
Many users have shared their experiences with oDoc. One such user commented, “I am feeling much better now. I think oDoc is amazing and the fact that we can contact our doctors during this pandemic from a distance is just magical. Technology is really the best of us. And I am really enjoying this new and improved way of meeting my family doctor. Thank you and keep it up.”
Driven by the aim of educating the general public about the latest situation in the country, oDoc has pioneered health communications by releasing articles on important topics such as the impact of Covid variants in circulation, the efficacy and safety of the different vaccines, and many more timely subjects.
