PH’s 1st fully integrated health, wellness app set to transform healthcare delivery

WITH the goal of making healthcare in the Philippines more accessible to people, mWell is the country’s first fully integrated, one-stop health and lifestyle app aimed at transforming the way healthcare is delivered through online doctor consultations, health education, wellness programs, online pharmacy services and more.

Soon to be launched by Metro Pacific Health Tech Corp. (MPHTC), a wholly owned subsidiary of Metro Pacific Investments Corp. (MPI), mWell is an all-in-one app designed for every Filipino’s demand for treatment and care during this pandemic where connecting patients with doctors and medical professionals has become very challenging.

PLDT president and chief executive officer (CEO) Manny V. Pangilinan said, “Even before the pandemic, Filipinos needed better access to healthcare. Many challenges and limitations hinder medical care and treatment, more so during this Covid-19 crisis. We are truly excited with mWell, the MPIC group’s investment in digital health care."

Aside from online video consultations with licensed doctors from different specializations, mWell app users can gain valuable health information about a wide range of topics from Covid-19 to chronic disease management, pregnancy issues, online fitness, nutrition and wellness programs. The mWell app also provides patients with the option to order medicines and healthy products via its e-pharmacy and online shop.

MPIC’s president and CEO Joey Lim added, “The fully integrated experience empowers patients to be in full control of their health and well-being with just a few clicks, in the comfort of their own home. It truly is a game changer in healthcare management.”

A One-stop Health and Wellness Shop

mWell partnered with dedicated specialists for a comprehensive care and support like active8me, an award-winning all-in-one digital health and wellness platform for personalized daily fitness, nutrition and wellness programs, and theAsianparent, a go-to platform for smart parenting solutions from family health and wellness to pregnancy development articles. mWell users can shop in over 3,000 health and wellness products at the e-shop by Adobomall and powered by PayMaya for fast, secure and hassle-free transactions.
