Malaysia’s Selgate Partners Indonesia’s Prixa On Medical Tourism
JAKARTA, Sept 5 – Prixa has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Selgate Healthcare which will enable Prixa to provide a full international medical experience for corporations and individuals that is seamless and accessible, via teleconsultation and on-site medical services internationally.
This strategic collaboration will accommodate patients from Indonesia and Malaysia to consult remotely with doctors from both countries. Furthermore, patients can be reciprocally referred to either Selgate’s health care provider network in Malaysia or Prixa’s health care provider network in Indonesia.
The collaboration will also provide patients with a complete treatment package. Prixa will facilitate patients from Indonesia who require medical treatment in Malaysia with plane tickets, accommodation, and any necessary doctor appointments and medical treatment.
Prixa chief operating officer Handry Mulyo said that the collaboration serves to realise Prixa’s vision to transform the individual medical experience to one that is more patient centric, easier to access, and affordable, while maintaining a high standard of care.
“Prixa is committed to becoming a leading healthcare provider. Our vision is to provide better health care services for corporations and employees. Thus, we envision our collaboration with Selgate as an integrated health care solution that provides international accessibility for patients. With this collaboration, Prixa will manage patients’ travel for their medical care, from departure to return, so patients no longer need to worry about searching for accommodation or finding the right doctor,” said Handry.
For Selgate, this collaboration is expected to expand their network and health services beyond Malaysia into other Southeast Asian countries.
“Our goal is to further strengthen our competitiveness by maximizing our respective competencies and comparative advantages to complement each other’s strategic work, and ensure the most efficient and probable business deliveries for our customers. We also hope that this partnership will lead to the extension of other services with PRIXA for other SELGATE’s subsidiaries,” said Noor Hisham Mohd Ghouth, executive director of Selgate Healthcare.
