Shaina Teope - January 18, 2021

Manila, Philippines – Locally-developed telemedicine app KonsultaMD in the Philippines has taken its services up a notch by bringing its benefits closer to those who need it – the app has partnered with Shopee to spread more awareness on the technology of teleconsultation, specifically for moms. 

KonsultaMD will be launching a live stream on the Shopee app which aims to promote telemedicine, being the next best thing to face-to-face consultations due to its easy access, for moms who juggle daily all-around tasks. It will be called ‘Shopee MomDays’.

“These days, it’s a big challenge for mothers to balance work and household demands, especially with all the health and safety protocols. For them, a top health concern is the possibility of someone in the family getting sick and needing immediate doctor advice, but going to the clinic or hospital already poses a big health risk in itself,” said KonsultaMD in a press statement. 

The live stream will be every Monday from 3 to 4 pm, slated to kick off today, January 18, of the same time. It will be hosted by Dr. Alyxandra Kim Sangel, MD. Through the live stream, viewers will learn how to do check-ups via telemedicine.

“KonsultaMD is excited to partner with Shopee for MomDays. Moms want the option of consulting health professionals without having to leave the safety of their homes, and KonsultaMD conveniently provides 24/7 access to doctors through video or voice calls,” said Cholo Tagaysay, KonsultaMD’s COO.

During the live streams, there will be weekly games that will give five moms a chance to win KonsultaMD Family Annual Plan. The plan includes a 12-month membership for five people, unlimited voice consultation, 48 video consultations, as well as e-Prescription, e-laboratory request, e-medical certificate, and access to partner benefits.
