Ascen Plus Pharmacy launches Malaysia’s first e-clinic app

Pharmaceutical company Ascen Plus Pharmacy has just launched the first-ever e-clinic platform in Malaysia that boasts services like replenishing drug prescriptions and access to virtual on-demand medical consultations from verified doctors. These services eliminate the need for patients to split their time between consultations at the clinic/hospital and pharmacy visits separately, making the healthcare process more affordable, convenient, and seamless.

The in-pharmacy platform ensures that patients are properly diagnosed by medically qualified doctors before medications are e-prescribed to be dispensed by licensed pharmacists on the spot. The doctors are on standby for remote consultations at any Ascen Plus location.

Ascen Plus Pharmacy’s e-clinic aims to create stronger and lasting synergies between general practitioners and pharmacists so that clear distinctions can be made to ensure a smoother, more holistic healthcare ecosystem that prioritises the health of the public. It additionally aims to reduce the rate at which patients receive inaccurate diagnoses or prescriptions, pay exorbitant medical fees, and go through further inconveniences at the expense of their health.

The service is accessible to the community at a rate of as low as RM 10 – patients can gain access to the e-consultation service on Ascen Plus Pharmacy’s e-clinic platform.

Leslie Cheng, Executive Director of Ascen Plus Pharmacy, said: “Today, Malaysians are facing inconveniences in terms of time and cost when navigating medical consultations and the inaccurate diagnoses and prescriptions that follow. Very often, physical consultations with doctors to obtain the right diagnoses and the appropriate prescriptions are costly and time-consuming.

“On the other hand, merely visiting a pharmacist to replenish an existing prescription could prove detrimental if a patient’s dosage requires altering – something that can only be determined by a doctor. To make matters worse, there is still a common misconception among Malaysians regarding the role that doctors and pharmacists play when ensuring the overall health and well-being of patients, meaning many patients are still confused as to the right party or channel to consult regarding health-related matters.”

In conjunction with the announcement of its e-clinic service platform, Ascen Plus Pharmacy is also announcing the opening of its 9th and 10th outlets at The Five Damansara Heights and Jalan Telawi, Bangsar, right next to myBurgerLab, respectively. Ascen Plus Pharmacy will be celebrating the inauguration of its 10th outlet at Bangsar with multiple limited time offers and freebies to be taken home with any purchase of their products (T&C applied).

Ascen Plus Pharmacy is also giving out DIY Mushroom Kits to participants and guests attending its outlet launch on the 14th of June. This kit will also be available as a free gift upon purchase of Ascen Plus Pharmacy products throughout June 2022.
