CYBERJAYA, 14 MARCH 2024 – TM via its Unifi Business segment, today unveiled its latest digital business offering called the e-Pharmacy Solution, a mobile application that enables e-prescriptions via teleconsultation for pharmacists and their walk-in patients.

Bundled with Unifi Business’ fixed broadband plans from 100Mbps up to 2Gbps, this offering in collaboration with Teleme Technologies, Malaysia’s leading telemedicine platform, includes access to over 500 licensed healthcare professionals for teleconsultation, e-prescriptions, customised Digital Signature, e-health articles and a repository for patients’ medical records.

Harnessing TM’s networks and its approximately 600 nationwide Unifi Business consultants, the offering aims to help pharmacists dispense essential medications and pharmaceutical services, especially among rural and underserved communities. Through e-prescriptions, these communities will be able to access prescribed medications seamlessly, enhancing adherence and improving health outcomes.

Launched by Minister of Communications YB Fahmi Fadzil, TM’s e-Pharmacy Solution aligns with the collaboration between the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) and Malaysian Pharmacists Society (MPS) during the Persidangan PEDi MADANI, to accelerate the digitalisation of healthcare services, and bridge the urban-rural gap in equitable access to quality healthcare.

This offering is also eligible for the Government’s Geran Digital PMKS Madani (GDPM), ensuring pharmacists from the micro, small and medium enterprise segment (MSME) receive the support they need to embrace digitalisation and enable a more inclusive healthcare system for all Malaysians.

Amar Huzaimi Md Deris, TM’s Group CEO said, “TM is pleased to introduce its e-Pharmacy Solution which empowers pharmacists to provide quality healthcare services and medications to walk-in patients through teleconsultations and access to licensed medical professionals. By integrating connectivity and technologies into patient care, our e-Pharmacy Solution aims to support healthcare professionals and the Government in providing efficient and beneficial services for all Malaysians, especially among communities where healthcare access remains a challenge.

“This new offering also reflects TM’s continuous efforts towards becoming a Digital Powerhouse by 2030, leading industry growth through digitalisation and sustainability, and strengthening our digital ecosystem to benefit communities and businesses,” Amar explained.
