MyPocketDoctor is an extremely innovative and potentially game-changing smartphone app, designed by Denmark-based Mediaxes as a means of making it easier than ever for people in the Philippines to access doctors with minimal hassle, that is the result of decades of telemedical experience and expertise.
Available for download through the Apple App Store as well as Google Play, the MyPocketDoctor app allows users to engage in consultations with doctors through video or audio call, as well as to access free nursing assessments. The doctors who offer consultations through the app are allowed flexible working hours. This allows them to continue working in their regular environments and furthering their skills, while making some extra money.
Described as the 'Uber for medicine', MyPocketDoctor is a great example of how smartphone apps can make it possible for more people to leverage telemedicine for their healthcare needs.
