CEBU, Philippines —  The Metro Pacific Investments Corporation (MPIC) officially launched mWell, an all-in-one app designed for Filipinos’ holistic well-being, providing professional consultations, wellness programs, products and delivery services.

“Through a collaboration with trusted health experts, mWell will develop an ecosystem to bring integrated digital health care closer to every Filipino, even beyond the pandemic. mWell will empower every Filipino to be in control of their health with just one app,” said MPIC chairman Manny V. Pangilinan in a virtual press conference held Friday, July 23, 2021.

Operated under Metro Pacific Health Tech Corporation (MPHTC), a wholly-owned subsidiary of MPIC, mWell aims to transform the digital health care ecosystem in the country post pandemic.

According to Pangilinan, mWell is a high-performance mobile app backed by a powerhouse of top names in the healthcare, wellness and tech industries, such as, CareSpan’s Clinic in the Cloud™ integrates digital care tools and data for mWell doctors and patients; LotusFlare’s multi-awarded cloud-native, IT digital enablement platform ensures a seamless, end-to-end customer experience; Ping An’s healthcare technologies enables mWell to address Covid-19 concerns, diagnosis, care, and treatments.   

Complementing the technology partnerships, mWell teams up with award-winning fitness experts like Active8me, for personalized daily fitness, nutrition and wellness programs; and theAsianparent, for smart parenting solutions from pregnancy to family health management.

Powered by PayMaya for fast, secure, and hassle-free transactions, over three thousand health and wellness product SKU’s are available for mWell app users at the online health shop by Adobomall.

MPIC president and chief executive officer (CEO) Joey Lim expressed confidence that this fully-integrated healthcare management is a game changer. 

“Together, we will build an ecosystem that will provide easy access to integrated digital healthcare. We invite doctors and health practitioners to digitize their practice, partner with us and be part of mWell’s mission. With our combined strength, we can empower our countrymen to be in control of their health,” Lim said.

The mWell launch today signals the opening of this new digital health ecosystem. 

Currently in partnership with CareSpan, Philcare and Keralty Clinic, a whole gamut of doctors and health practitioners have joined the mWell roster comprising of general practitioners and specialty doctors to enable much needed access to health professionals during this pandemic, Lim said.

Doctors are able to easily manage digital appointments, keep patients’ confidential medical records and issue e-prescriptions. And with the partnership of Medicard, users can book COVID-19 testing services.

Lim further explained that doctors, clinics, and hospitals all over the Philippines are welcome to be part of mWell.

Doctors can set up their own mWell virtual clinic for free. “There are no set-up or membership fees. Doctors will be given a quick and easy training to be able to access the mWell suite of services and can immediately digitize their practice, reaching more patients nationwide,” he added.

“Through telemedicine, accessible healthcare can be promoted and the anxiety of going outside would be reduced, not only for us doctors, but for patients as well,” shared Dr. Lovely Garcia adding that clinics and hospitals can set up virtual labs and accept booking via the mWell app.

“At the heart Gabay Kalusugan’s advocacy to bring healthcare to our kababayans,” stated Chaye Revilla, Chief Finance & Sustainability Officer of Metro Pacific Investments Corp.

“mWell is our response to Filipinos’ call for a better, more responsive, highly convenient healthcare platform. It is a fully integrated ecosystem that will deliver their health and wellness needs.” Revilla added.

Starting August, mWell will provide a more enriching journey as users can access the e-Pharmacy service that will allow them to buy South Star Drug OTC and Prescription medicines and have these delivered to their homes, or buy PhilCare health insurance products for dengue, accidents, and emergencies. Also in August, mWell will launch a nationwide medical mission, an unprecedented first telehealth virtual event in the Philippines highlighting partnerships and collaborations with clinics and doctors nationwide.

Come September, mWell, in partnership with Aktivolabs, will enable its users to monitor, track and improve their Wellness Score through Aktivo’s® proprietary algorithm that weighs a user’s physical activity and sleep daily and provides personalised information on what an ideal healthy physical lifestyle is, to improve health and longevity.

For its initial offering, PLDT Home customers may avail of a free consultation with mWell doctors.

In the next months, Lim said there are more services to be launched with each new feature adding concrete benefits to the health of every Filipino.

mWell is the health technology platform developed by Metro Pacific Health Tech Corporation that offers telemedicine, e-pharmacy, health and wellness programs, e-commerce, among others, in an integrated, tech-based healthcare digital ecosystem.
