oDoc, Sri Lanka’s largest digital health company, has partnered with John Keells Holdings, the nation’s leading conglomerate, to provide access to healthcare services to over 3,000 John Keells Holdings employees.
Founded in 2017, oDoc connects over 800 doctors across 50+ specialities with patients for video consultations via its mobile app. In addition, the company provides medicine delivery and mobile laboratory diagnostic services directly to the patients home, making healthcare convenient for all. With its partnership with oDoc, John Keells Holdings is now able to extend these services to its executives and their families.
At an attractive monthly rate per employee, oDoc provides corporate employees free unlimited access to the SLMC-registered GPs and consultants from the comfort and safety of their own home. Key benefits include keeping employees safe from the pandemic by reducing exposure to pathogens at hospitals or clinics and improving employee productivity by eliminating time spent in traffic and waiting rooms.
Speaking of their value proposition, oDoc CEO Heshan Fernando said, “Providing our telemedicine services to JKH helps the conglomerate ensure the well-being of their employees. Moreover, during this time of crisis, as organisations need to encourage employees to adjust to the new normal, a healthy and happy workforce is vital to maintain workplace productivity. JKH employees now have access to doctors from the comfort of their own home.”
Elaborating further, John Keells Holdings Executive Vice President/Chief People Officer Isuru Gunesekera said, “The service offered by oDoc is timely and convenient at a time when we are actively encouraging our employees to refrain from visiting hospitals in order to minimise personal risk/exposure.”
oDoc’s medicine delivery arm oPharma provides islandwide delivery of medicines and its home diagnostics arm, oLabs, offers mobile laboratory services directly to employee’s homes.
