By striving to deliver highly accessible medical services while sustaining quality healthcare, Qualitas remains steadfast in providing quality primary healthcare to communities across the Asia Pacific. This commitment was further reinforced during the Covid-19 outbreak that reached pandemic proportions in March 2020.
Acutely aware of their responsibility to carry their frontline role through their wide network of GP clinics across Malaysia, where communities have come to rely on its doctors and healthcare staff to provide reliable diagnosis and treatment, Qualitas took the initiative not just to play its part, but to lead the country in their Covid-19 testing.
This has led the Group to once again stands out among other healthcare leaders with two wins at the Healthcare Asia Awards 2021. The two accolades are Primary Care Provider of the Year and Covid Management Initiative of the Year.
When there is a communicable disease outbreak, the definitive response is for testing to begin early. This leads to quick identification of cases, rapid treatment of patients and immediate isolation to prevent its spread. Testing also plays a major part in the bigger picture of public health – in mitigation efforts, helping investigators characterise the prevalence, spread and contagiousness of the disease. Ultimately, testing reduces the enormous burden on public and private clinical facilities in treating positive cases.
Due to its decades-long role as a healthcare company, Qualitas Medical Group was able to immediately strengthen its existing facilities within its network last year, upscaling quickly to cope with the pandemic, including being able to access adequate testing kits, laboratory time and by deploying doctors, nurses and auxiliary medical teams across the nation.
