The Rise of Telehealth in the Philippines
The rise of teleconsultation in the Philippines started when the Philippine Department of Health and National Privacy commission collaborated to provide free telemedicine services to the people which help in reducing health center occupancy thus preventing the spread of the pandemic. From the start of the partnership, it already helped more than 70,000 individuals with its virtual consultation. In order to address patient concerns, it utilized a medical co-management method, in which medical doctors collaborate to develop a diagnosis and give the best available therapy. Despite the travel and movement restrictions, we have been able to provide healthcare solutions to people because of our expertise, resources, and collaborations.
These telehealth platforms have recently been rapidly integrated. A collaborative venture was announced in the Philippines between a local telehealth platform and a Philippine multinational corporation to build a telemedicine platform and develop a comprehensive digital healthcare ecosystem. Virtual consultations with healthcare specialists on demand and chronic care services are just a few of the highlights. Users can avoid health facility lines and video-call a licensed health practitioner in 5 minutes, with medication administered the next day, due to a local telemedicine platform. In Metro Manila, medication delivery is absolutely free. The software saves medical histories, health reports, and other information for simple access. The platform also allows experienced counselors and therapists to provide mental health counseling.
As AI’s applicability in telemedicine expands, clinicians will be able to easily assess, screen, and diagnose a variety of illnesses from afar, according to OpenGov Asia. When remote checking and AI are combined, tremendous progress can be made with less skilled labor. This is a good thing because AI has the potential to reduce hospital wait times and other processing annoyances.
Konsultamd and Bizbox Partnered with Qualimed to Deliver Telemedicine Services to the People
QualiMed has established four hospital teletriage teams, with bases at Daniel O. Mercado Medical Center-Batangas, QualiMed Hospital-Iloilo, QualiMed Hospital-San Jose Del Monte, and QualiMed Hospital-Sta. Ana. Rosa, as well as one teletriage team for surgery centers with a base facility at QualiMed Surgery Center-Manila and one teletriage team for clinics with a base business unit at QualiMed Corporate Health Solutions.
Patients are connected to doctors affiliated with the base facility closest to them by each teletriage team. Once the ECQ order has been withdrawn, people can physically confer with their doctors as needed.
QualiMed Health Network launched TeleCheQ, a telemedicine solution given in conjunction with KonsultaMD and BizBox, more than two months after Metro Manila implemented enhanced community quarantine (ECQ). Patients can now get online doctor consultations from the comfort of their own homes thanks to TeleCheQ.
