Innovative online medical service GetMed is connecting patients in the Philippines with doctors, offering access to more than 25,000 doctors spread across 3,500 hospitals and clinics via a new mobile app for Android devices.
GetMed understands that it can be hard for busy people, especially parents, to book appointments for check-ups, and even harder and more stressful to access medical care when it is urgently needed. The service aims to solve the issue of finding an available doctor by connecting people who need health care with physicians in their area. The mobile app is free to download, and there is no fee charged by GetMed for booking appointment. The signup process is designed to be as friction-free as possible, to remove barriers to accessing health care.
GetMed user Alexandra Jiminez of Bauio City is just one of many patients that have successfully made use of the service, and she reports that “As a single mother of 3, GetMed has been a lifesaver for taking the kids to the doctor”.
Why You Should Choose GetMed App?
The service includes a powerful search tool that allows users to search for doctors by their specialism (e.g. dermatology, or paediatrics), the location, and even by name for repeat visits. Each doctor that is signed up to the service can create a profile, including details of where they practice, their working hours, their experience and anything else that they wish to share. Patients can send doctors a message, or use the service to book an appointment with them directly.
For Doctors, GetMed offers a valuable service, allowing them to acquire new patients who are in need of their specialist services. For patients, it is a time-saving tool that avoids issues such as doctors that are fully booked or have long waiting times, and practices that are not accepting new patients. There is no need for an unwell patient to travel to the doctor’s surgery to request an appointment or wait for a drop-in slot to open up. There is no need to sit on hold on the phone for long periods. Patients can simply fill out a form online, and be told immediately if there are slots available.
GetMed wishes to ensure that as many people as possible have the ability to access the treatment they need, when they need it. The GetMed App allows users to find a doctor in the Philippines quickly and easily. The mobile app is available now to download free of charge, and is compatible with most Android devices, as long as they are running Android version 4.0.3 or newer. Users of other smartphones or tablets can still access the GetMed services via their website, using their mobile device or their desktop PC. Creating an account is free.
