Founder and CEO, Doctor Anywhere
Telehealth trailblazer Doctor Anywhere streamlines and simplifies healthcare
Lim Wai Mun is the founder and chief executive of Doctor Anywhere, a regional telehealth start-up that lets patients video consult with a Singapore‑registered doctor, psychologist or counsellor via its app. The firm harnesses online and offline platforms to offer health and wellness services to users, and has a network of 1,300 partner clinics and eight fully owned offline clinics.
Doctor Anywhere stores patients’ medical history, health reports and relevant documentation in-app for convenience. Medication can be delivered to their doorsteps in a matter of hours. Patients can also peruse health and wellness products and services on a dedicated marketplace as well as access the firm’s list of healthcare providers.
The firm, which currently operates in Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam and the Philippines, recently raised $88 million in a Series C funding round. Investors included Asia Partners, Novo Holdings, Philips and OSK‑SBI Partners, along with returning investors EDBI, Square Peg, IHH Healthcare, Kamet Capital and Pavilion Capital.
Lim previously worked at Temasek Holdings, where he helped to conceptualise and establish Pavilion Energy, a Singapore-based liquefied natural gas company.
