HealthNow, the all-in-one health app developed by AC Health and Globe’s 917Ventures, has noted over half a million users nationwide in its first year of operations.
HealthNow offers different healthcare services, which include easy access to telemedicine services, medicine deliveries, and urgent care hotlines. Within its first 12 months of operations, the healthtech company has onboarded some 600 healthcare providers and more than 60 pharmacy stores to support its operations across the country.
Through its innovations, patients can now easily book consultations with general practitioners and specialists via video calls, purchase over-the-counter and prescription medication for delivery, and centralize all medical records in one easy-to-use app. Soon, users will be able to book diagnostic tests for home service and have their lab test results interpreted online.
“Although the times have been challenging, our focus remains firm and unwavering,” said Susana Beatriz Latay, CEO, HealthNow. “In support of the country’s vision for universal healthcare access, we will continue to extend the medical frontlines and bring our services to more Filipinos.”
Latay also mentioned that HealthNow users can expect more ways to experience quality health services in the coming months.
Since its launch in August 2020, HealthNow has partnered with various firms in the healthcare industry nationwide, including immediate 24/7 health hotlines such as KonsultaMD, Lifeline, Hopeline, and pharmacies like Generika and diagnostics aggregator Dashlabs.ai.
HealthNow also powers the digital touchpoints for Ayala Group’s COVIDShield program, which aims to administer over 1M vaccines to employees and their loved ones across the Ayala Group and its partners.
