e-Swabhimani awards, the nation’s premier digital, social impact awards 2018 was held recently at Galle Face Hotel, Colombo. This prestigious national event celebrating the outstanding digital impact solutions organised by Information & Communication Technology Agency of Sri Lanka (ICTA), is an annual event since 2009. The awards nominees were considered under nine different categories and were adjudged by a grand jury comprising of eminent experts drawn from various fields of expertise. Surpassing all the nominees in the Health & Well-being category, MyDoctor.lk emerged as the winner. 

MyDoctor.lk is a digital platform created with a vision to amalgamate the eco-system centred on the patient, thus providing an end to end connectivity and digitisation of key stakeholders in the healthcare eco-system. The solution allows individuals to maintain their own health profile in the cloud and link up with various professionals and services such as medical professionals, laboratory services, pharmaceutical services and hospital and other healthcare centres. The aim of MyDoctor.lk platform is to empower the users and bring together the healthcare services which are currently functioning in silos thus providing a holistic and an integrated type of care. The founder of MyDoctor.lk, Dr. Harsha Jayakody says, “MyDoctor.lk also aims to act as a knowledge hub for individuals who have just been diagnosed with pre-existing medical conditions and direct them to connect with the portal of information and guidance via mobile application as well as the website. Sri Lanka as a country has not yet seen digital solutions fully integrated into the healthcare services of the country and in fulfilling the everyday health and well-being needs of a person. According to ICTA Juror’s Evaluation, “Allowing people to take control of the eco system around their health and well-being would be a key step in integrating different health and well-being related services and professionals involved in providing such services. The MyDoctor.lk platform and app seem to have embarked on creating this integration using modern technologies and have reached considerable heights over a short period of time.” 

The jury further mentioned that the effort taken by MyDoctor.lk as a pioneering step in the Sri Lankan context having potential to streamline the healthcare service delivery driven by the needs of a person rather than by the terms dictated by the system or context.
