Borderless Healthcare Group Supports Malaysian Doctors to Develop ‘COVID-19 Heartware’ for Migrant Workers and International Students in Malaysia and Beyond!
Malaysian doctors transform existing practice into clinic-of-the-future via the Borderless.clinic platform
14 May 2020 – Borderless Healthcare Group supports Malaysian doctors to implement a total wellness program for migrant workers and international students in Malaysia and beyond.
The lockdown has not only created inconvenience for many but has also stranded communities like the migrant workers and international students who may have to go through lots of anxiety for not having their family around during this COVID-19 pandemic. Migrant workers are usually confined in dormitories with more than ten beds in one room and may not have the comfort of communicating in their own language during the mass screening. Furthermore, the confinement process may have totally neglected their mental wellness. Needless to say, the news of death of their friends caused by COVID-19 can further aggravate their psychological impairment. International students, on the other hand, may not only be isolated from their families, there are those who are trapped in countries where there are looming xenophobia like Australia, Europe and America and are gradually facing fear of being targeted for verbal abuse and violent attacks.
“We need more ‘heartware’ for certain compromised groups in the world amidst the uncertainties caused by the pandemic. I like to thank all our Malaysian doctors who stepped forward to help make the world a more caring place! Borderless Healthcare Group is here to drive this total wellness program with them to bring healthcare professionals, migrant workers/international students and their family members together via the Borderless.clinic platform,” says Dr Wei Siang Yu, founder and chairman of Borderless Healthcare Group.
More than two million migrant workers and more than 100,000 international students will be eligible to join the multi-lingual interactive COVID-19 education program conducted by participating Malaysian doctors and their counterpart from the country of origin of the migrant workers and international students. This will be followed by proprietary co-care consultation sessions with COVID-19 experts, Malaysian doctors and the patients’ family members which will be made available at selected locations in Malaysia and other countries via the Borderless.clinic platform. Migrant workers in other countries and non-Malaysian international students are also welcome to join.
The Malaysian doctors are led by Dr Liew Kong Fui, a Borderless Medipreneur who will be working with other Borderless Medipreneurs in other countries like Myanmar, Indonesia etc to expand the Borderless COVID-19 fighter network throughout the world.
“We are not limiting the function of the doctors in a small screen mobile marketplace. Borderless.clinic allows family physicians, specialists, nutritionists, fitness coaches, nurses, counsellors etc around the globe to co-care just like an actual hospital setting without geographical barriers and device limitation. One can even use the TV for big screen telepresence. That’s how we will be enjoying hospital-at-home experience which is hard to achieve even in the actual hospital!” says Dr Liew Kong Fui, a family doctor in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Borderless.clinic is the first-of-its-kind clinic-of-the-future platform with device-agnostic telehealth engine, supported by a multi-lingual video call centre with blockchain and facial recognition capabilities. The platform is already integrated with more than twenty thousand pages of easy-to-understand, medically audited content and a global panel of renowned medical experts from Australia, Singapore, China, Hong Kong, Europe and America. The development of ‘heartware’ will see Borderless.clinic dotted in many non-clinical locations as well universities, dormitories, transport hub, border crossings etc.
Migrant workers are encouraged to sign up at www.borderless.clinic to join our first interactive health education by top COVID-19 experts and local doctors on 30th May 2020. The interactive health education session will be conducted in two separate sessions: Bengali and Burmese languages.
