about us

Untitled-1.png

Our mission is to provide patient-centric and integrated solutions for primary healthcare in Malaysia and Southeast Asia. Primary healthcare (or PHC) is the first-line healthcare that you receive. You receive PHC outside of hospitals, whether in clinics, in your own homes, or sometimes through your smartphone or computer. 

 

What is “Patient-centric”?
We believe that “healthcare should come to you”. You receive your care according to your preferences and needs, via video consults, voice calls, text messaging, group sessions and/or in-person sessions. Angsana uses one digital health platform (powered by
QueueMed) to integrate your care team in one place.

What are “Integrated Solutions”?
Angsana will start with building solutions for specific diseases. These solutions involve multi-disciplinary teams formed by doctors, nurses, pharmacists, psychologists and other allied health professionals. With a multi-angle approach, your care experience becomes holistic, easy-to-understand and personalized.

So far, we have launched three solutions: Virtual COVID Care; Long COVID Care and the
Tenang App (Malaysia's first mood tracker app). The COVID solutions feature multiple health professionals: family medicine specialists, psychologists, counsellors, nutritionists, rehabilitation physicians and physiotherapists.

What is the Future?

As we progress, Angsana will build solutions for other specific diseases, such as autism, cardiac conditions, liver conditions, skin conditions and tuberculosis. In the long-term, we hope to improve patient experience in receiving PHC, and to eventually build a comprehensive PHC system for Malaysia and Southeast Asia.
