IUVO team


CHOO WEI CHIEH, MBBS

CHOO has been on the road since 2006, traveling across the island to see patients in their homes as a fulltime house-call doctor. The clinical situations he encounters are varied, ranging from acute emergencies, routine elder care, palliative care, etc. He is fortunate to have so much road time (and traffic jams) to reflect on and find innovative solutions for the patients he sees.

EUGENE LOKE, MBBS

EUGENE is a general practitioner who loves tech. Having successfully developed, marketed and sold electronic medical record (EMR) systems in the past, he remains active in the health – IT field and continues to do consulting work. Despite his love of tech, he does not write lines of code in his clinical entries (he's still able to write meaningful sentences that make sense to people).

ZHENG HUI, M. ENG

ZHENG straddles the bridge between biology and hard data, having worked in scientific research involving sleep, EEG and the brain. Having to deal with so much data daily, he has grown to look at machines and algorithms as his friends (next to us).

GWEN, JACK and MUM

GWEN, JACK and MUM live together in a 3 room apartment. MUM's got chronic diseases that require constant monitoring and medical reviews, and has some difficulty walking. As a result, she occasionally needs a wheelchair to get around. GWEN and JACK share care-giving responsibilities while juggling full-time jobs. The going gets tough for them occasionally. Fortunately they know how to use tech to help make their lives easier.

About IUVO HEALTH

IUVO HEALTH was founded by CHOO, EUGENE and ZHENG, simply because none of us could create innovative healthcare solutions by ourselves. For a start, we've focused our energy on helping (IUVO = "to help" in Latin) patients that we care for directly, thus our special PHR for home care. We make an effort to restrain ourselves from over-indulging in tech and numbers (even though we like this a lot!) to come up with "right-tech" (rather than purposely "hi-tech").
