Now more than ever, the telehealth industry, which includes startups like SeeYouDoc, is answering the call to deliver health care services from a distance. With their recent partnership with the Department of Health (DOH), a number of doctors are now offering free online consultation using the SeeYouDoc platform.
SeeYouDoc made a lot of improvements as a telehealth platform that will enable patients and doctors across the Philippines to be more connected and to experience safer and convenient medical appointments and consultations.
It has been three (03) months since Metro Manila was placed under a “community quarantine,” prohibiting non-essential activities and forcing communities to stay home to reduce the risk of contracting the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19). SeeYouDoc has shown the significance and impact of providing remote health care services to the general public. The startup is streamlining telehealth services for patients, doctors, medical facilities, and medical societies through its web and mobile apps.
There are now three easy ways to consult with SeeYouDoc partner doctors in its mobile app for patients:
- Book online consultations in advance
- Make direct pre-consultation advice via video call
- Book medical appointments
With the new “Online Consult via appointment,” patients can now set a schedule ahead for their online consultation. This feature, together with the “Online Consult via direct call” and “Book Appointment,” which are already featured in the SeeYouDoc mobile app, are displayed in the doctor’s SeeYouDoc profile.
In addition to the advance booking of consultations that can be done using a mobile device, SeeYouDoc also set up its e-prescription feature to complete the telehealth experience for patients. In this way, patients can now download authenticated prescriptions from the startup’s partner doctors. This feature can be accessed anytime by patients by going through their appointment details.
These new features benefit patients as these are more convenient and safer for those who have health questions and common illnesses and who would want to avoid leaving their homes and are concerned about their safety.
The goal of the SeeYouDoc platform is to build an innovative solution and comprehensive access for healthcare providers and patients to their medical needs whenever and wherever they are.
