JAKARTA -- Indonesian conglomerate Lippo Group plans to give a shot in the arm to its core health care business with a revamped telemedicine app next year that it says will improve patients' access to doctors.

The app will primarily target people who exhibit zero to mild symptoms, John Riady, CEO of the group's flagship company Lippo Karawaci, told Nikkei in a recent interview.
