Healthcare for the Next Generation
A health-tech company with the goal of shifting advanced medical care from hospital to home
Who We Are
Speedoc was founded in 2017 in Singapore, comprising of doctors, engineers and business executives that wanted to prove medical care need not be a lengthy, cumbersome experience.
With the ageing population to address and improved access to technology, Speedoc built a complete end-to-end system for doctors and patients, so that house call doctor services can be provided with ease and minimal burden to people in the community.
With Speedoc, home medical services need not be limited to only immobile patients, but to everyday people who may require GP or A&E visits for themselves or their loved ones.
The Speedoc Story
We listened to the problems that the people around us faced. These were people we loved and cared for. We heard their stories. We saw friends sustain serious injuries and having to wait in the emergency room in excruciating pain for hours. We saw other friends take time off work that they couldn’t spare because they had to accompany their elderly parents to the doctor. We saw other friends, still, who were declined job offers because their child fell sick on the first day of work.

The Road Ahead
Since the beginning, we had a vision of making an impact on Singapore’s healthcare landscape. As we grew from strength to strength, that vision became a little bit clearer. Having been awarded a SPRING Singapore grant, we are on our way to work for streamlining healthcare in Singapore.
In the long term, by making healthcare more convenient, accessible and affordable to all, Speedoc seeks to focus on preventative healthcare, including management of chronic conditions in its early stages, loosening up resources and manpower for patients who have more serious and life-threatening cases.
In the future, we’re committed to using data in smart ways to make sure that we can do things like disease prediction, disease intervention, outbreak prediction and other forms of bioinformatics. It’s an exciting road ahead and we hope that you’re right there with us.
We will always continue to look for better and smarter ways to provide medical care; you can count on that!
Values & Our Promise
We believe that healthcare comprises of 2 words: “Health” and “care”. For a long time, doctors and other medical professionals have focused on “health” aspect of healthcare. They’ve done it well. That’s gotten us to a world class system. However, it got us thinking whatever happened to the “care” part of the equation? Do “health” and “care” have to come at the expense of each other?
Our hearts told us no. Quality medical attention does not mean compromising on care. We set out on this endeavour not just to be best-in-class when it came to ensuring good patient health, but we also wanted to be leaders in our field when it came to patient care. We ensure that every Speedoctor has adequate time for their patients and not rush through their consultations and diagnosis. When we recruit Speedoctors or get partner doctors to join our team, we emphasize the importance of good bedside manners and a sincere, caring nature before we proceed with the onboarding process.
