Medgate: Bridging Filipinos To Medical Professionals for Professional Consultation

Medical Consultation in the Philippines is really a big headache for the Filipinos. There are so many problems with having to consult with a doctor. You will be facing traffic jams and long lines of queue in our trains.

You will be facing more problems during rainy season as you need to get past those flooded areas just to reach the nearest hospital!
When you finally arrive at the hospital or clinic, you will also wait in long lines just to consult a doctor and sometimes the doctor would not arrive. Sometimes, you will be cut-off because the doctor needs to go somewhere else.
The price of medical consultations is also expensive even though you would only have around 5-10 minutes to talk to the doctor. The situation is far worse in public hospitals.
There are some companies that provide telemedicine here in the Philippines. However, these companies simply connect the doctor to the patient (much like an Uber or Grab app) and the applications they developed don’t use encryption so there are higher risk of your information being taken by others.
The other problem is that these companies are not ready to cater to service the Filipinos as they are owned by foreigners and they had not designed their system to help diagnose and treat the diseases that are frequent in the Philippines.
Now, Medgate Philippines is here to solve these problems. Medgate has especially modified their service to the needs of Filipinos.
Their app, Medgate PH, keeps your information and the data you send (such as photos) safe and secure via encryption.
Medgate Philippines’ doctors are actually in the office, ready to give consultation 24/7. You can also request a call back from them.
