All-in-One Healthcare Application Deployed in the Philippines

Healthcare organisations are developing long-term strategies to fully digitise their operations. Digitisation in the healthcare industry has aided health-care providers in developing a robust and critical infrastructure by focusing on the needs of the patient. The digital future of healthcare appears promising, as patients become more comfortable using digital services for complex and sensitive issues such as health care and medicine. It is an unequivocal signal for providers and payers to embrace healthcare’s digital future by embracing the third wave of digitisation.

Digitisation enabled by Health Information Technology (HIT) has transformed people’s perceptions of health care and altered how end-users’ approach and interact with the subject of health and medical services. The adoption of IT and technology in the healthcare industry has transformed the relationship between a patient and a provider, empowering people to participate in personal and family health management actively.

With healthcare being a top priority these days, a new all-in-one mobile application designed specifically for Filipinos is almost ready to launch by the Philippines health-tech company.

The Philippines health-tech company’s “one-stop health and lifestyle app” aims to transform healthcare delivery through online doctor consultations, health education, wellness programmes, online pharmacy services, and more.

Application users can also gain important health information about topics from Covid-19 to chronic disease management, pregnancy issues, online fitness, and other programmes.

The President and CEO of the company mentioned that they had developed the app since Filipinos have been needing better access to health care even before the pandemic. The mobile application will be powered by top names in the healthcare, wellness, and tech industries to address Covid-19 concerns, diagnosis, care, and treatments.

OpenGov Asia reported that there is an increasing global demand for smart healthcare, which includes telehealth and telemedicine. Telehealth is one of the newest industries to make extensive use of AI, from the distribution of electronic medical cards to personal consultations. The role of AI in telemedicine will grow significantly as the field of telemedicine and telehealth evolves with increased adoption.

Healthcare organisations are gradually embracing digitisation, with healthcare executives frequently citing the sensitive nature of medical care as an excuse for the low consumption of digital healthcare services. In reality, patients are willing to use digital services if they meet their needs and are of high quality. Another reason cited for the slow rate of adoption is that most health-care providers frequently feel the need to be innovative in terms of design and features. Patients, on the other hand, do not anticipate innovative features. Instead, they seek efficient processes, improved accessibility, and human interaction.

Similarly, the Philippines had also launched another healthcare platform which is the first healthcare app to be developed as of last year, allowing users to consult a doctor via video, order medication for delivery, and schedule clinic and lab appointments.

“With the current pandemic, it’s not easy for Filipinos to take care of their health. There have been delays in seeking medical help due to fear of contracting the virus when they go out to visit a doctor’s clinic or a pharmacy,” said the Philippines leading network operator.

“Healthcare providers, on the other hand, are also facing a challenge, as they have to handle a tremendous volume of patients while making sure that everyone receives the appropriate help at the right time,” it added.

As per the network operator, the Department of Health supports contactless delivery of health services via telemedicine as a way to relieve hospitals of non-critical cases and prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus, particularly among vulnerable members of society.

Mobile apps like these, which are only a sliver of the diverse landscape available in app stores and on the Web, exemplify the dramatic changes that the healthcare industry is undergoing as a result of technological influence. The main thrust of this digital transformation, which is currently reshaping medicine and other healthcare sectors, is to make things smarter, more connected, accessible, easy, and comfortable to use.
