Telehealth service KonsultaMD has released a mobile app that allows customers to engage in 24/7 teleconsultation with a licensed doctor via voice or video without leaving the comforts of their own homes.
This contactless approach to health services is endorsed by the Department of Health as a way to relieve hospitals with non-critical cases and to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus especially among vulnerable members of society.
“We understand how difficult it is for people with medical concerns to go to the doctor and face the risk of COVID-19 infection. Yet there are instances when doctors and patients need to see each other to exchange information especially if visual assessment is necessary such as in the case of skin diseases.
“Through the app, we’re giving our customers a viable alternative to face-to-face consultation,” said Maridol Ylanan, CEO of Global Telehealth, Inc., the company which operates KonsultaMD.
KonsultaMD offers four affordable plans to choose from ranging from Php 15 per week to Php 150 per month. These plans are called the Starter Plan, Personal Plan, Partner Bundle Plan, and Group Bundle Plan. The plan may be used to seek advice on primary care, first aid, health and wellness, nutrition, mental health, and even for the issuance of e-prescriptions and interpretation of lab results.
Subscription may be done through the KonsultaMD app which may be downloaded from the App Store for iOS or Google Play Store for Android or by calling 79880 via mobile or (02) 7798 8000 via landline. Calls to the mobile hotline are free for Globe and TM customers.
KonsultaMD is an affiliate of 917Ventures, a corporate incubator and wholly-owned subsidiary of Globe Telecom.
