Medgate Philippines was recently hailed as one of the top 10 companies at the forefront of telehealth solutions in the Asia-Pacific, for their contribution and impact on the healthcare industry.
The recognition was given by Healthcare Tech Outlook, an international publication that highlights key healthcare technologies. Committed to shining a spotlight on how healthcare can be brought to new heights through technology and innovation, Healthcare Tech Outlook singled out Medgate as an important industry player.
“Accessible and empathetic healthcare has always been a top priority at Medgate, it is part of our mission to provide both compelling and personalized medical care to patients across the country and our other markets,” says Stavros Athanasiou, president of Medgate Philippines. “We are honored to be recognized as a leading provider of telemedicine solutions in the region, especially now that so many Filipinos are in need of more convenient healthcare options amid the pandemic,” he adds.
Since its launch in 2016, Medgate Philippines has served over 1.5 million patients, with a roster of doctors in internal medicine, family medicine, pediatrics, and OB Gynecology, among other specialties — allowing for patients to get a holistic form of care. Medgate Philippines is also one of the official telemedicine partners of the Department of Health (DOH). The partnership was forged during the enhanced community quarantine, and Medgate handled nearly 70,000 calls from patients all over the nation, at no cost to either the caller or the DOH.
With this latest award under its belt, Medgate is empowered to expand its operations and reach even more Filipinos. “We are excited to further grow telehealth services in the country,” Athanasiou notes. “We’ve seen the power that telemedicine has to greatly improve the healthcare experience, so the next step is to make an impact on more lives through our strong brand of care that comforts.”
Recently, Medgate Philippines was also recognized by Healthcare Insights and Capital Finance International as the “The Most Trusted Remote Medical Service Provider in the Philippines,” and “The Best Global Telemedicine Provider of 2020.”
