by the team at Speedoc, June 4, 2020
Manage your chronic diseases right in the comfort of your home. Sign up for Speedoc’s Chronic Disease Home Management (CDHM)™ and our team will schedule all your regular check-ups for you. From reminders to lab tests to doctors consultations, let us do all the work for you. Plus, you get up to 10 teleconsultations with a Speedoc doctor included that can be used by any family member, for any condition.
Who Is It For?
Chronic Disease Home Management (CDHM)™ is suitable for patients suffering from chronic conditions of Diabetes, High Cholesterol, Hypertension and Thyroid Conditions seeking convenient, holistic, evidence-based care.
What Are The Benefits?
Convenient Management. There is no need to worry about missing or being late for appointments, taking time off work for your follow-ups, or running out of medications, because Speedoc will take care of all those things for you. If operating hours and inconvenience of travelling to the same clinic are issues, Speedoc can help you solve these problems. You can schedule your regular teleconsultation reviews even after working hours, from 8am to 8pm, 7 days a week. Research has shown that telemedicine can help improve your overall quality of life and chronic condition management. Given that it is a teleconsultation, there is no need to spend time travelling to a clinic or hospital as you can see the doctor virtually no matter where you are.
Clinically Approved Protocol and Consolidated Medical Records. Our packages are fully guided by clinical practice guidelines written by the Ministry of Health Singapore and based on robust clinical studies to ensure that we provide a one-stop platform for you to seek professional medical advice and recommendations. Your medical history is kept encrypted confidentially on record, and our doctors also have access to the National Electronic Health Record (NEHR), which houses medical records from public hospitals and polyclinics. Hence, we have a comprehensive understanding of your condition and its progress up to and beyond your interaction with a Speedoc doctor.
Regular Monitoring. Having a regular GP that you always go to ensures that your chronic condition is well-managed with regular monitoring and that you are getting the most appropriate treatment with a personal touch and making timely lifestyle changes. Frequently changing doctors results in fragmented care, but at Speedoc, we provide a one-stop solution for all your medical needs.
Treatment of Acute Conditions Linked To Chronic Disease Background. When you develop an acute condition (such as a fever, cough, or infection) while on long-term medication, you need to be careful about whether your prescribed medicine interacts with your chronic condition medication and lead to unintended or side effects. Since we have a consolidated medical records system, your doctor will have access to all the medications that have been prescribed to you, eliminating the possibility of drug interaction when you choose Speedoc for both your urgent and chronic medical needs.
Why Is It Important To Manage Your Chronic Conditions?
Chronic conditions like diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol may affect multiple organs in the body and could lead to various complications if not well-managed, such as kidney failure, strokes, heart attacks and more.
Prevent potential complications. Chronic conditions such as diabetes and hypertension are lifelong conditions, and treatment is aimed at preventing stroke, heart disease, kidney, eye and nerve complications. Keeping your condition well-controlled with regular monitoring and follow-up care can help you maintain a better quality of life.
Cost and time savings. When you keep your chronic condition well-managed and prevent potential complications, you save money that might otherwise have had to be spent on medical treatments due to complications. Having a regular home check-up schedule set up can save you travelling and waiting time if you were to make a trip to the doctor.
Know your condition better. Learning how to monitor your blood pressure, blood glucose readings, etc. will help you understand what causes your condition to improve or deteriorate. You can then take precautions against the activities that are detrimental to your condition.
What Chronic Disease Home Management (CDHM)™ Packages Are Available And What Do You Get?

Vaccinations Recommended For Chronic Diseases
Vaccinations are especially important for chronic disease patients as you are statistically more likely to develop complications from any infections that could have been prevented with vaccinations, especially as we get older. The MOH-recommended vaccines for those with chronic conditions are:
