VieVie’s workshop on managing health worries
On Saturday 6th October 2018, VieVie Healthcare, an online health platform in Vietnam hosted a workshop “Stop Worrying, Start Living Healthy” at Van Hanh Mall in Ho Chi Minh City to talk about how to reduce health worries and manage one’s healthcare with our increasingly modern and busy lifestyles. Joining the event, were famous celebrity couple Ly Hai – Minh Ha, who, well known for successfully raising their four children while leading a busy life, shared their experience of managing family healthcare. Leading psychologist, Associate. Professor. Dr. Huynh Van Son also attended the workshop and talked about stress management.
The event “Stop Worrying, Start Living Healthy” hosted by VieVie Healthcare was joined by 200 guests including VieVie patients and doctors, media and partners
Vietnamese people have a lot of health worries but often chose to ignore them
The event discussed strategies and tactics on how to manage health worries and showed research from leading research company, Decision Labs that showed that 45% of Vietnamese worry about their health every day, and 6% worry about their health three times a day! The research also identified the habit of people to ignore their health worries due to lack of time, money and a lack of understanding about how to address a medical problem and what to do.
In many hospitals in Vietnam visiting a hospital or clinic can often be inconvenient with travel and waiting time making up 2-3 hours for a 3-4 min doctor consultation. That is not a sufficient amount of time to get enough advice about treatment and managing illness and has become a barrier to getting good health advice. As a result, many Vietnamese people self medicate by obtaining medical information online.

VieVie doctors also shared their experience of using the App:
Dr.Trang shared: “As pediatrician working in a big hospital, I have come across many cases of parents that took their kids to hospital too soon or too late, because they were either they over-reacted or chose to handle the health problem themselves, without doctor’s advice. This lead to unexpected consequences for their kids.”
“I saw a child who was suffering convulsions. His family put an iron spoon in his mouth without asking for medical specialist advice from a doctor. As a result the child broke many teeth and injured their jaw. If the parents had received medical advice instead of taking this action, the child would not have become injured.
“Joining VieVie has been the right decision for me. I can help many patients on time when they need me wherever they are and reduce their health worries”
Dr.Trang and Dr.Thai, two VieVie doctors share about how they help patients on VieVie
Dr.Thai, another doctor working at VieVie commented:
“In hospital, I often don’t have much time for patients, as we can only spend 3 to 5 minutes with each patient, because hospital is always crowded and overloaded. If I spend more time for a patient, other ones need to wait longer. So, when I heard about VieVie app, I was so excited and decided to join.”
“Since joining, I have consulted and helped more than 1,000 patients all over Vietnam. As well as provide medical advice, I also try and show them care and empathy to understand what they need. Talking to patients on VieVie App is different to working at a hospital, as consulting on the VieVie app makes me feel like talking to friends, teach them about their health, how to take care of their health. I’m happy when working with VieVie”.
