KonsultaMD unites with AC Health’s Generika and Healthway to expand healthcare services for Filipinos
KonsultaMD, the Globe Group’s innovative healthcare SuperApp, in partnership with AC Health, has joined forces with its sister entities, AC Health’s Generika Drugstore and Healthway Medical Network, to expand healthcare services for Filipinos nationwide.
The partnership was launched recently in an event at the Makati Stock Exchange, bringing together AC Health President and CEO Paolo Borromeo, Healthway Philippines President and CEO Jaime “Jimmy” Ysmael, Generika Drugstore President and CEO Atty. Yet Abarca, KonsultaMD CEO Cholo Tagaysay and KonsultaMD COO Beia Latay.
Through the integration of AC Health’s comprehensive ecosystem with KonsultaMD, patients now have the convenience of connecting with a wide network of medical professionals, hospitals, clinics, and an assortment of health services using online and offline platforms.
KonsultaMD members can now order medicines directly from Generika Drugstore and access the Healthway Medical Network’s comprehensive suite of in-clinic diagnostic services such as laboratory, imaging, and rehabilitation. The app will also soon feature a convenient hospital appointment booking feature.
“The launch of this partnership encapsulates the ecosystem and synergies that AC Health stands for. By linking Generika Drugstore and the Healthway Medical Network’s services to KonsultaMD, we enable more Filipinos to conveniently access healthcare through different touchpoints,” said AC Health President and CEO Paolo Borromeo.
