Jebhealth began with one mission – to empower the delivery of important medical services to the community through innovation. Disheartened by the lagging adoption of technology in the healthcare sector, which has led to significant inefficiencies and rising costs, Mr Jimmy Boey, Founder & CEO of Jebhealth left a successful career with a leading, global pharmaceutical company to pursue his goal of solving this problem.
Having personally witnessed how unnecessary lead-times in healthcare have rendered treatments ineffective for patients, especially when it came to diagnosing diseases, Jimmy sought to leverage digital technologies to create a solution that could provide rapid access to early detection and quality preventive care at affordable rates.
Working at the intersection between healthcare innovation, entrepreneurship and technology, Jimmy gathered a team of equally passionate individuals and used the remainder of his life savings to develop and launch Jebhealth on World Doctor’s Day – a digital platform that connects users to an extensive and curated medical and wellness network in Asia.
Since its creation in 2016, Jebhealth now houses a network of about 10,000 doctors and therapists, providing high-value preventive care services to users including comprehensive health check-ups, preventive dental treatment, physiotherapy, family and specialist care services, as well as medical and dental aesthetics and online marketplaces such as Health Screening, Dental Services and Vaccination.
