Tab a Doctor is a new "go-to" medical portal designed to bring Singapore's private medical practitioners and consumers onto a common online platform:-
Wish you could seek a doctor's advice before deciding if you need to make an appointment for a consultation? Now, any registered user can post a question to a panel of doctors to get more information or a better understanding about a problem before deciding their next course of action, via "Ask a Doctor" section. The answered questions will be posted in the portal, so other consumers can refer to them should they have similar questions in mind.
Also, Tab a Doctor provides information on medical practitioners with a range of specializations to help consumers choose the right doctor. Doctors’ credentials and experience are detailed on the portal as a useful a guide to help consumers make an informed decision. For example, an enquirer can review a number of doctors with the same specialisation and choose one based on the doctor’s credentials, experience, availability, or even just the location of the clinic. At the moment, Tab a Doctor has recruited more than 310 registered specialists/doctors and among these 150 are the panel doctors who are actively answering questions from consumers.
The portal and app displays the consultation schedules of all participating doctors so that the consumer can check the available time slots of his/her preferred doctor and book an appointment immediately. Once the appointment is booked, the system automatically provides a confirmation via SMS and/or email. If the preferred doctor does not have specific time slots available, the consumer can indicate a preferred appointment date and time, and Tab a Doctor’s Customer Support Service will confirm the appointment via live chat, and/or SMS, email.
In addition, the portal includes articles relating to health which are published regularly. Contributions of health articles from Singapore doctors are also featured in this section. Tab a Doctor is the ‘go-to’ site for consumers and doctors. The portal creates a seamless user experience for consumers to do research on health topics, "Ask a Doctor" questions and make medical appointments.
