In the future, he hopes that Alinamed can become an app for a sustainable health service provider, which never stops providing services to communities, whether there is a pandemic or not.
Riswanda said, Alinamed is an app in health sector giving consultation or bringing doctors in anytime and anywhere. As stated by Riswanda, one of Alinamed’s strengths is its partnership platform with health facilities.
“So services from our doctors, whether they come to residents or through online consult, have all been standardized by our partner clinics,” said Riswanda.
