Southeast Asia Practice Selects GlobalMedia Telemedicine Solutions

Singapore Physician Opens Distant Practice in Indonesia

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Dr. Williem Goh is a primary care physician in the Republic of Singapore, an island country off the southern tip of the Malay Peninsula. But he and his affiliated medical specialists now see patients at the Medicall Clinic in Surabaya, Indonesia, nearly 900 miles away, without spending two and a half hours on a plane getting there. Dr. Goh and his clinic chose GlobalMedia telemedicine solutions to bring medical care to Indonesians.

The Medicall Clinic in Indonesia’s second largest city provides reliable access to healthcare where there is a troubling shortage of providers. Dr. Goh says the goal is to deliver healthcare information and second opinions while making it more convenient and cost effective. “There is a lack of information, doctors and healthcare facilities that can deal with advanced healthcare treatments in Indonesia,” Dr. Goh says.

Dr. Goh and his staff communicate between Singapore and Surabaya with GlobalMedia’s EasyShare™ video-conferencing client. “EasyShare is easy to install and set up, and it’s user-friendly and reliable,” Dr. Goh says. He believes the GlobalMedia technology his clinic uses offers a practical answer to meeting an increasing demand for healthcare in Southeast Asia.
