KUALA LUMPUR (May 17): Local e-prescription service provider DOC2US is set to ink a strategic regional partnership with Watsons Malaysia.
According to people familiar with the deal, customers of the Hong Kong-headquartered Watsons who use the Watsons Malaysia Mobile App will be able to chat with doctors from DOC2US, and get instant prescriptions for the medications to be dispensed in the pharmacy stores.
They can then collect the medicines at the selected stores, they said.
The collaboration is seen integrating pharmacies and medical practitioners across the region.
It is understood that via DOC2US’ digitally signed e-prescription system, Watsons pharmacies will be able to dispense prescription medicine prescribed electronically by certified and licensed doctors of DOC2US.
The deal is set to be announced soon.
