How does the speedoc app work?

The app is a doctor-on-demand service. Patients key in their location in the app, in addition to any symptoms. They can also call a doctor for a family member, which is useful for people who can’t always be around to take care of a child or parent. They will receive a price upfront, and the request will go out to the nearest doctor, or one that has seen the patient before to facilitate the continuation of care.

How does this fit in with Singapore’s push toward a smart nation and city?

The whole point of the smart nation initiative is to use technology to improve the lives of people. I think that’s what we are doing with our focus on digital health. Speedoc’s goal is to reduce the downtime in the system and allocate healthcare resources more efficiently.

We’re using technology like mobile apps and geolocation to connect doctors to the patients closest to them. That gives doctors more flexibility and helps patients access timely medical care. This can make healthcare more convenient, accessible, and in time, affordable.

What Should You Know About Cloud Security Solutions?

First, let’s explain exactly what the cloud is, and how it relates to digital security. Intuitively, some people believe that “cloud” storage means your data is being held in the air somehow, but this isn’t really the case.
