The Philippines’ #1 health and fitness app makes its way to the global stage
mWell continues to blaze trails in digital healthcare as it becomes the #1 health and fitness app in Google Play Store starting February. In its awards entry, mWell showcased its winning edge.
In a country like the Philippines where access to basic healthcare is a privilege rather than a right, Filipinos are still considered as the unhealthiest in Asia. Believing that uplifting the lives of Filipinos is a prerequisite to national progress, mWell, the country’s first fully integrated and fully digital health and wellness app vetted by data privacy and cybersecurity experts, brings healthcare closer to Filipinos wherever they may be. At their fingertips, users have access to quality but affordable healthcare and wellness programs anytime, anywhere. It breaks down geographic boundaries through technology, giving 24/7 access to primary care doctors, specialists, mind health experts, home care experts, emergency services, fitness, and food and nutrition programs.
Through the mWell ecosystem, doctors can serve patients beyond their geographic areas. To consult, patients simply need to download the app and sign in. After the video consultation, they will receive the doctor’s notes, medical certificate, and e-prescription. They can even have the medicines delivered right at their doorstep.
With the health and well-being of Filipinos in mind, mWell promotes preventive healthcare. It has an mWellness Score developed by data scientists, which measures your physical health based on your activities – exercise, light activity, steps, sleep. It has specialized fitness programs, including diabetes prevention and post-partum exercise designed to assist new moms to get back in shape safely and healthily; and nutrition programs designed by experts.
Both a digital health service and an advocacy, mWell’s line-up of firsts covers product features, innovations not only for patients but also for doctors. For example, it launched the biggest nationwide digital medical mission where Filipinos can consult for free with hundreds of volunteer doctors and mind health experts during the mWellness Day.
For affordable consultations, mWell was the first to offer telemedicine through a sachet health pass– the Healthsavers Plan P399 which comes with one consult and free accident insurance worth P20,000. This may also be sent as a gift to loved ones and friends, allowing mWell app users to easily be agents of good health.
Breaking barriers through digital healthcare, mWell has made the Healthsavers Plan available globally to over 10 million Filipino migrant workers who sacrifice being away from families to provide food on the table and education for their children. They may easily send their families the health pass as a gift and allow them to conveniently consult with mWell partner-doctors.
mWell is the only healthcare app among the convenor organizations and supporting companies in the GoDigital Pilipinas movement which advocates digitalization initiatives to empower Filipinos through technology.
