Borderless Healthcare Group launches philanthropic telemedicine initiative for regional doctors to connect to millions of migrant workers in Singapore and the region

Doctors transform their practice to Borderless clinic-of-the-future model to accelerate development of the new dormitory-of-the-future program.

14 May 2020 – The grave COVID-19 cross-infection in the migrant worker community in Singapore is costing the government billions of dollars in prolonged COVID-19 struggle.

Borderless Healthcare Group is launching a philanthropic telemedicine support for doctors in Bangladesh and Myanmar to help the migrant workers in their dormitories as part of a new inclusive and sustainable solution development to support the doctors in Singapore. Dormitories can now start to apply for free download of the Borderless.clinic app where the TV in the dormitory can now be connected to a healthcare cloud with more than twenty thousand pages of medically audited content in different languages, global network of doctors and even multi-lingual video call centre support. Borderless.clinic is a device-agnostic telemedicine engine which can allow telemedicine from the TV, tablet, PC and mobile phone. The platform also comes with optional blockchain and facial recognition upgrade.

Migrant workers can now sign up for interactive public health education conducted by global COVID-19 experts in partnership with doctors in Myanmar and Bangladesh via www.borderless.clinic. The first Burmese and Bengali sessions will commence from 30th May 2020. This will be followed by the dormitory-of-the-future program which is expected to commence as early as June where qualified dormitories can start telemedicine support with Bengali and Burmese speaking doctors. Migrant workers can even invite their family members to join.

“The practice of holistic medicine where we look at bio-psycho-social wellness is particularly important for the migrant worker community as many of them have anxieties, grief and stress during this pandemic. They are away from their families, staying in poor living conditions and nutrition, social network may be limited, friends may have died and worse of all, language barrier can be a big obstacle too, ” Dr Wei Siang Yu.

Singapore is not the only country with more than a million migrant workers. Malaysia has more than two million and Saudi has more than four million migrant workers. A global effort to partake in the inclusive stakeholdership model spearheaded by Dr Wei Siang Yu can potentially lead the world to create a new unprecedented sustainable total wellness program for all the migrant workers in the world.

The unique Borderless co-care model does not only allow doctors from different countries to work together but has also allowed allied health professionals like fitness coaches, nutritionists, counsellors, psychologists, social workers and volunteers to all inter-operate and make the world a better place.
