MedHome - Startup Weekend Shanghai November 2011

  1. 1. Do you know a friend or family member who’s a Dr? Have you ever asked them for advice? As a practicing Dr, I have lots of people who ask me for simple advice, and I’ll tell you one of the stories - tonsilitis
  2. 2. Unsure about the Chinese healthcare system Wasn’t sure whether she could communicate with a Chinese doctor or even trust them Didn’t want to spend a lot of money to have an unnecessary consultation
  3. 3. That patient isn’t alone. There 210,000 registered foreigners in Shanghai now and growing at over 12.5% yearly. And like anyone some are bound to fall ill and want to have a quick chat with a western doctor to get more information to decide whether they really need to go and see a doctor in Shanghai which could be scary, a hassle, and very expensive.
  4. 4. Solution has been with us for over 10 years since Skype was born!
  5. 5. By reaching out to me for medical advice by simple smartphone technology, she benefitted from: Speaking to a doctor who was trained from the UK Saved her time, money & hassle And was FREE
  6. 6. But she could have chosen other competitors, but if she could, would she? Trust - patients I’ve treated so previous personal contact - word of mouth within expat communities Price - FREE to begin with - can be monetised later
  7. 7. But she could have chosen other competitors, but if she could, would she? Trust - patients I’ve treated so previous personal contact - word of mouth within expat communities Price - FREE to begin with - can be monetised later
  8. 8. Imagine a secure facebook type platform but home to your own personalised medical record. Users register with medhome and each consultation is recorded together with any pictures taken or blood test of medical images that are uploaded by the user. The mobile app is an add-on feature that allows registered users of medhome to easily access medhome doctors.
  9. 9. An average call for advice is 5-10mins, so approx 6 consults per hour. If dr incorporates 1 hour per day for advice giving, then in one year he can give just over 2,000 advices. Charged at 100RMB, that 200,000RMB extra income per annum.
