May 22, 2020 | 11:23 AM
Telehealth service KonsultaMD has released an app that allows customers to engage in teleconsultation with a licensed doctor anytime via voice or video without leaving the comforts of their own homes. The app keeps the customer’s account information such as check-up history and remaining subscription balance and lets the users top up their subscription as well as request e-prescriptions, e-labs, and e-referrals. This contactless approach to health services is endorsed by the Department of Health as a way to relieve hospitals with non-critical cases and 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 a visual assessment is necessary such as in the case of skin diseases. Through the app, we’re giving our customers a viable alternative to a face-to-face consultation,” said Maridol Ylanan, CEO of Global Telehealth, Inc., the company which operates KonsultaMD.
