Regional telehealth platform Doctor Anywhere (DA) and Philippine conglomerate Equicom Group announced a joint venture to launch a telemedicine platform and develop a comprehensive digital healthcare ecosystem in the Philippines. Key features include on-demand virtual consultations with healthcare providers and chronic care services.
The joint venture will build on Equicom Group's extensive healthcare network in the Philippines, together with Doctor Anywhere's track record of successfully delivering integrated telehealth solutions to millions of users in Southeast Asia.
Doctor Anywhere's telemedicine platform allows users to skip the clinic waiting time, and video-call a licensed doctor in five minutes, with medication delivered to them within one day. Medication delivery is free, covering Metro Manila. Medical history, health reports, and other documents are stored in-app for easy access. The platform also supports mental health counselling with trained counsellors and therapists.
The partnership successfully launched the platform to Equicom Group's employees earlier this year, and is extending the services to the general public. App users may enjoy a cashless doctor's consultation, and obtain medicine prescriptions and referral letters electronically in-app. They can also book mental wellness counselling, and speak to an experienced counsellor through the app.
