In the wake of a successful month, Malaysian startup, Qmed Asia announces regional expansion into Taiwan, Indonesia, Vietnam, and Cambodia to introduce value-added services to healthcare segments and patients in the form of innovative digital health solutions that are accessible, affordable, and reliable.
On October 12, Qmed Asia signed two memoranda of understanding (MOU) with Taiwanese companies, Eucare Co Ltd, a leading 24/7 online medical consultation platform, and Ubestream Inc, a listed company providing cloud-to-end AI semantic technology integration solutions, to expand its solutions offering to Taiwan healthcare providers for smarter clinical assistance supported by AI semantic technology.
In Indonesia, Qmed Asia is at full speed. In the same month, Qmed Asia partnered with one of the leading Indonesia Insurance providers in launching its mobile live queue solution for local hospitals to reduce long wait times when seeking medical attention and improve the overall patient experience in healthcare facilities.
Prior to this, Qmed Asia participated in Vietnam’s largest and most prestigious annual start-up competition, Vietnam Start-Up Day, and emerged in the top five out of 150 international participants from 32 countries on 26 August. During the six-month competition organised by the Business Start-Up Support Centre (BSSC), Qmed Asia researched the Vietnamese landscape and seized the opportunity to network and connect with strategic local partners.
Less than a week after the recognition, Qmed Asia signed an MOU with MeetDoctor, a one-stop digital health platform offering online consultation, medicine delivery, home lab testing, and medical appointments in Cambodia. The MOU signing ceremony was witnessed by H.E. Sok Chenda Sophea, Minister Attached to Prime Minister and Secretary General of the CDC (Cambodia), and Dato Vincent Choo from MRCA.
“We are here to make an impact first for healthcare! We have been fortunate to have a wonderful team who are passionate about healthcare, working together to provide value-based care to the healthcare industry through cutting-edge technologies. We are now looking forward to market expansion into the APAC region,” says Dr. Kev Lim, CEO & Founder.
The digital health startup has also achieved a record-breaking 1,716,092 online appointments and was listed in the Malaysia Book of Records on August 13 for having the most number of online medical service appointments in a year. This recognition strengthens the credibility of Qmed Asia’s digital solution to provide easy access to healthcare.
Malaysia acts as a gauge for Qmed Asia to anticipate the regional healthcare landscape, influencing the way it conducts research and development to provide future solutions. The digital health startup is currently fundraising via equity crowdfunding (ECF) on Leet Capital for its next growth phase.

About Qmed Asia
Qmed Asia (formerly QueueMed) is a healthcare technology startup founded in 2018 by a group of Doctors and Engineers to assist both public & private healthcare providers with their digital health transformation.
Our initial focus was to address the problem of long queues in hospitals, which our founder, Dr Kev Lim, experienced himself when he brought his daughter for follow-up. Further worth noting, patients' experience in hospitals was seemingly unpleasant with the unnecessary extensive waiting time. Passionate about healthcare, together with Dr. Tai Tzyy Jiun and Nic Tai, we took matters into our own hands and decided to tackle the issues patients face at hospitals for good.
Since implementing our online appointment system and mobile queue solutions in clinics and hospitals, we have received overflowing support and positive feedback both from the public and healthcare providers. It wasn’t long before we realised there was much to do for the healthcare industry in Malaysia after receiving numerous requests and demands from our users (healthcare providers). We made it our mission to roll out more comprehensive modules that would significantly impact the healthcare industry.
Today, Qmed Asia serves as an all-in-one healthcare companion for both patients and healthcare providers. Healthcare providers can easily implement a variety of digital health modules, such as the patient experience solution, virtual clinic solution, clinical practice assistant, and healthcare services matching. And for the patients, we offer a comprehensive range of online healthcare services, including appointment booking and online queueing to nearby healthcare facilities, having a doctor or nurse come to their home, video consultations with doctors, and remote patient monitoring solutions.
We believe that the future of healthcare is digital, and we are committed in making quality healthcare accessible, affordable, and accountable in collaboration with our partner healthcare providers.
