This is done through deep-linking of its mobile app with Google Maps and Waze for navigation, Grab and Uber for land transport, AirAsia for air transport and Agoda for hotel accommodation.

This is in line with BookDoc’s goal to enhance the access of healthcare in the Asia region. The public, via BookDoc, will be able to access qualified practitioners in the field of physiotherapy who have been certified by MPA and have proper practice facilities.
