Farmaku Acquires DokterSehat to Improve Quality and Service Range
Digital health is one of the sectors that is experiencing rapid development, including in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic. Considering this, Farmaku (PT Solusi Sarana Sehat) acquired DokterSehat (PT Media Kesehatan Indonesia).
Farmaku is a pharmaceutical eCommerce that provides medicines, health care products, and beauty products. Throughout 2020, Farmaku claims to have scored a 4-fold increase in transactions.
As for Healthcare Doctor, it is a company that provides health articles, health consultations, and makes appointments with doctors and hospitals. Since its establishment in 2016 until now, DokterSehat claims to have served more than 180 million users.
Farmaku has previously collaborated with DokterSehat, so this strategic merger is expected to provide more comprehensive health services to the Indonesian people. The hope of this acquisition is that it can complement the wider ecosystem in terms of transactional and providing health information in Indonesia.
“Farmaku has previously collaborated with DokterSehat, so this strategic merger is expected to provide more comprehensive health services to the Indonesian people,” said Iswandi Simardjo as CEO of Farmaku.
Improved Quality and Range of Services
Meanwhile, Indra Adam Darmawan, who previously was the CEO of DokterSehat, hopes that the acquisition can complement the wider ecosystem in terms of transactions and provision of health information in Indonesia. After the acquisition, Indra assumed the role of CMO at Farmaku.
Farmaku in the future plans to improve the quality and range of services. So far, both Farmaku and DokterSehat will continue to provide health services on the previously available portal. In other words, users will still be able to access both platforms as usual.
“Users will still be able to access Farmaku and DokterSehat platforms as usual,” said Indra Adam Darmawan, CEO of DokterSehat, who is now CMO Farmaku, in a written statement, Saturday (19/12/2020).
