Looking back on 2018: Mednefits year in review

January 9, 2019

2018, what a year it was. Uber merged with Grab, Trump and Kim had their historical meeting on our sunny island and we found out not all asians are actually crazy rich. But as we took some time to pause and reflect (before we repeat) here at Mednefits, we have actually accomplished quite a bit! From product updates to new teammates to events and M.A.D (Mednefits Active Day) outings - check out our favourite moments from each month of 2018!


  • We kicked off 2018 with the ‘Employer-Provided Healthcare Platform’ strategised and planned in mind.
  • Hadi was on a mission together the interns to train all our health partners on the new product.
  • Huei Min joined the team, our longest 8 months internship programme.
