KonsultaMD inks partnership with home care app AIDE for an easy access to health services
The 24/7 health hotline service of Global Telehealth, Inc., (GTI) KonsultaMD, recently inked its partnership with home care app AIDE to give people the medical care they need without having to leave their house.
AIDE is a home care booking app that enables users to choose the best, available health care professional with just a single tap of a button on their smartphone or any portable digital service.
“We’ve already made it easy for Filipinos with medical needs to get access to professional medical care over the phone, but we decided to take it up a notch by partnering with AIDE. Now, they not only get to talk to medical professionals over the phone but also get to see them personally. In addition, they don’t have to brave the horrendous traffic just to get to the clinic or hospital. They can just stay put and let the doctors come to them,” said Maridol Ylanan, Chief Executive Officer of Global Telehealth, Inc. (GTI), an affiliate of Globe Telecom.
"AIDE was created with the dream of providing medical care anytime, anywhere for the Filipino people, and it is through this partnership with KonsultaMD that we take another step closer to achieving this. As partners, we will constantly learn, adapt, and improve as we tackle the various pain points of our health care system together. We, at AIDE, are excited as we believe that the phrase "medical care anytime, anywhere" has never been more possible than it has been with AIDE and KonsultaMD,” Dr. Patrick Bugayong, Co-Founder and Managing Director of AIDE, said.
Right at their doorstep, members of KonsultaMD will have the benefit of having a licensed and qualified medical professional who specializes in medical care, nursing care, physical therapy, diagnostics, and animal care starting August 15 up to September 14.
However, KonsultaMD members get to enjoy one free trial of any AIDE service during the period. They will also get a 10% discount on all AIDE services from August 15 onwards.
To avail of the service, Globe Postpaid subscribers only need to pay a fee of PhP 150 per month, which can be used by up to four additional members. Meanwhile, Globe Prepaid and TM subscribers have the option to subscribe for an individual membership by paying PhP 15 per week or PhP 60 per month.
Users of other networks can also subscribe to KonsultaMD by simply logging on to www.konsulta.md to fill out an online application form, while the subscription payments can be made via Visa, MasterCard, GCash, BancNet, or SMART Money.
