“Now, perhaps more than ever in Hong Kong, employers are paying more attention to the mental well-being of their people.

Introducing the MedleyMed Virtual Clinic model
Digital pharmacy platform Medley Medical Solutions (Medlimed) has launched its virtual clinic concept in India, transforming local pharmacies into digital clinics that facilitate online doctor consultation.
Known as the Anand e-Clinic, this kiosk format at the pharmacy allows patients to book appointments and manage doctor’s advice online through a digital platform.
Although the global epidemic has enabled digital healthcare services to be widely adopted, Medlimed notes that there are still people who enter nearby pharmacies to receive medications recommended by pharmacists. The company warned that the practice could be “horrible” because pharmacists lack the knowledge of registered doctors.
To address these concerns, MedleyMed is creating the Anand e-clinic ecosystem to make doctor’s advice more readily available to patients. According to founder Satish Manchala, their goal is to transform more than a thousand pharmacies across the country into virtual clinics in the next three years.
More than 50 pharmacies in Hyderabad, Telangana have so far signed up to implement the Anand e-Clinic concept.
“There is also an opportunity for local pharmacy stores to transform into a virtual clinic with minimal investment and benefit from incentives and customer base growth,” Mancha added.
