Veon’s Bangladeshi subsidiary Banglalink has launched the country’s first integrated digital health platform, branded as Health Hub.
Introduced as part of Banglalink’s MyBL self-care mobile service, Health Hub is a healthcare platform for Banglalink customers that facilitates all aspects of healthcare from initial consultations to medicine planning. Through the platform, users have access to a comprehensive array of affordable digital health services provided by Health Hub partners, including Bangladesh’s leading healthcare providers Daktarbhai, DocTime and Pulse.
In a country with dispersed and sometimes difficult to access health services, Health Hub brings together multiple facilities such as booking doctor appointments, video consultations, insurance claims, a personal health tracking tool, home sample collection, and medicine delivery in one digital portal. The Health Hub platform covers all major health needs and enables users to find medical services at substantially lower costs. Banglalink customers will have access to the facilities through exclusive daily, monthly, and yearly subscription packages.
“Bangladesh is a market with huge potential that is undergoing a transformation through the adoption of digital services. This is digital democratisation of health care that opens the way for customers to find better and lower-cost services,” said Erik Aas, CEO of Banglalink.
