4,000 Paranaque educators get free telehealth services from KonsultaMD, Zeal
KonsultaMD and ZRewards by Zeal partnered with the Department of Education–Paranaque (DepED Paranaque) in honoring the heroes who are at the forefront of public school education by providing some 4,000 teachers, school administrators and staff, with free one month subscription to telehealth services.
The two companies gave out personal subscriptions to KonsultaMD’s 24/7 telehealth hotline during the virtual World Teachers Day celebration in Paranaque recently. The digital vouchers contain a custom registration link to the Zeal platform. Those who register may avail of medical consultation with licensed doctors for non-emergency cases whenever they want to and wherever they may be.
“With the current pandemic, access to reliable healthcare is vital. KonsultaMD recognized this need so we continue to build partnerships across the Philippines to make healthcare more affordable and accessible to every Filipino,” said Cholo Tagaysay, Chief Operating Officer of Global Telehealth, Inc. which operates KonsultaMD.
By having access to telehealth services, educators no longer need to visit a hospital or clinic. This will save them time, money, and effort as well as protect them from exposure to the COVID-19 virus.
KonsultaMD is equipped with modules and internal protocols in handling different health issues and provides a telephone triage or a means of determining the urgency of the caller’s condition.
Its team of doctors can also provide general health information, guidance and specific measures, interim care and self-care recommendations, reading of laboratory and diagnostic results, health coaching, and nutrition counseling, and prescribe medication.
“As part of our vision to make sure that no Filipino is left behind, we give back to our modern day heroes in the classroom, who are the pillars of this country’s public school education. We are proud to share this opportunity to secure the health of our public school teachers and staff on this global celebration of teachers,” shared Zeal Entrepreneur in Residence, Glenn Estrella.
