Medgate Telemedicine Center Opens in the Philippines

Earlier this year, Medgate Philippines started operations. The Philippines are already the third country outside Switzerland, where the successful telemedicine concept of Medgate takes root, after the opening of the Abu Dhabi Telemedicine Center in the United Arab Emirates in 2014 and the Telemedicine Center ReadyCare in Australia in 2015.

At Medgate Philippines, 25 doctors and 8 telemedical assistants currently provide advice and diagnosis around the clock, 365 days a year, for patients with acute and general medical questions. Patients are treated according to the high quality guidelines as developed and implemented by Medgate in Switzerland. Doctors at Medgate Philippines can also provide their patients with medication prescriptions and a certificate of inability to work, if necessary.

The Medgate concept has established itself over the last 16 years in Switzerland and is attracting a lot of interest abroad. A further expansion of Medgate International is therefore planned and negotiations for further countries are already underway. Medgate is convinced that through the exchange of experience at international level, new impulses can also be set in Switzerland.
