My Pocket Doctor: First Telemedicine Application in the Philippines

Have you ever experienced being sick but no one was around to drive you to the doctor? What about you went to the clinic/hospital and your doctor was off-duty. I’m quite sure these are very frustrating most especially when you suffer excruciating pain.

Aside from these, a doctor‘s visit can be costly and time consuming. Would you believe if I say that you can have your own pocket doctor? I’m excited to tell you that Medicard, a leading health maintenance organization (HMO) provider, gives a time and convenient option to get medical consultations anytime, anywhere with My Pocket Doctor.
