 Telehealth service KonsultaMD has launched a program that allows customers to engage in teleconsultation via video with a licensed doctor anytime without leaving the comforts of their own homes.

In partnership with the Department of Health (DOH), customers of KonsultaMD may now enjoy unlimited video consultation with any of the 30 telemedicine doctors who have volunteered in the department’s Healthcare Warrior Program. This service is available until June 22.

Subscription may be done through the KonsultaMD app, which may be downloaded from the App Store for iOS or Google Play Store for Android or by calling 79880 via mobile or (02) 7798 8000 via landline. Their plans range from P15 per week to P150 per month.

The company was also tapped by DOH earlier to provide free telemedicine advice to individuals who need non-emergency medical assistance.

“We are glad to be chosen by DOH as one of their platforms to reach out to people who are in need of medical advice,” said Maridol Ylanan, chief executive officer of Global Telehealth, Inc. “Telemedicine is a viable alternative to face-to-face consultation and is one way of decongesting our hospitals so that the medical staff can focus on critical cases.”
