Allianz Life launches home care package for COVID-19 patients

This is in partnership with medical home care provider Speedoc.

Allianz Life Insurance Malaysia Berhad (Allianz Life) is working with medical home care provider Speedoc to introduce the first of its kind, Allianz Care@Home, a service to its customers who are COVID-19 patients, to seek medical attention from home.

With this one-stop medical care solutions, patients with COVID-19, classified under Category 3 and above, may be provided medical care at home whilst they wait for hospitalisation. 

A medical team is dispatched to the customers home to provide preliminary medical attention and support and at the same time assist in facilitating admission to designated medical centres for further treatment.

In early September, Health Ministry Director General Tan Sri Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah said some states have exceeded the capacity of COVID-19 wards including Penang at 117% capacity, Perlis at 102% and Johor 101%.

States that are close to reaching the capacity for COVID-19 beds are Kelantan at 95%, Kedah at 94% and Sabah at 92%. Meanwhile, Selangor’s bed capacity was at 66% and Kuala Lumpur at 58%.

“What we can do as a company which provides protection is to bring professional medical care to our customers’ homes to give them some reassurance, peace of mind, while waiting to secure a bed in hospitals. This is crucial as COVID-19 continues to test hospital preparedness in handling an influx of critically ill patients,” Allianz Life CEO Joseph Gross said.
