To become the biggest Preventive Healthcare Provider and B2B2C genomic sequencing platform in Southeast Asia that integrates technology in the healthcare industry.


To create the simplest and user-friendly online platform for Healthcare Providers, so that they are able to deliver precision healthcare solutions to customers, in order to prevent the onset of any diseases.


Genecare Sdn Bhd, an integrated healthcare solutions company incorporated in 2017, aims to connect customers with Healthcare Providers and Academicians through its NexTx mobile app, a single online platform which provides one-stop solutions from genomic screening packages, healthcare management plans to clinically-based products.

Founded by Lew Hon Kean, the company began as a retail pharmacy in 2003 in a town called Bandar Bukit Tinggi in Klang, Malaysia. The year 2004 marked a turning point in Lew’s career when he decided to rebrand the pharmacy by renaming it Revive Pharmacy (Formerly known as Farmasi Bukit Tinggi). The name change proved a good move and an instant success. In response to consumer demand, Revive Pharmacy began to expand to other vicinities in the Klang District. While the business recorded double digit growth annually, Lew never let complacency set in. He took his pharmacy business to new heights, through a major transformation exercise which ultimately resulted in a stronger identity in the “trustz” brand name.

In 2016, however, Lew was faced with the sad loss of six of his very close customers who were diagnosed with various types of cancer i.e. colon, salivary glands, ovarian, breast and cervical. Within just three months of their diagnosis, they passed away. Lew was devastated. One of his biggest questions was: ‘Couldn’t pharmacists play a larger and more effective role in preventive healthcare?’ As the saying goes, “Prevention is better than cure”. What can pharmacists or other healthcare providers do to help more people? There had to be a better way! He pondered over this for some time. Eventually, his questions were answered when he discovered Next Generation Sequencing (NGS). He then invested a lot of time and research on how to apply NGS into Malaysia’s Preventive Healthcare Industry.

Armed with this knowledge and ready to kickstart the project, Lew invited a group of customers who had experienced the ineffectiveness and shortcomings of a hit-or-miss healthcare system to join him in forming Genecare Sdn Bhd.
