Fully integrated health app mWell unveils many firsts in PH digital healthcare

In just a little over a year after its launch, health app mWell has transformed into the first fully integrated health app in the Philippines. In a recent event dubbed as ‘PH1,’ hosted by parent Metro Pacific Investment Corporation (MPIC), mWell showcased its newest features, which are mostly groundbreaking firsts in the local digital healthcare landscape.

PH1 facilitated a full display of mWell app features that highlight its holistic approach to telemedicine—from doctor consultation to e-pharmacy, emergency services, home care, and fitness and nutrition programs. mWell also proudly revealed its cutting-edge Electronic Medical Records and clinic management system for partner-doctors that further enhances the functions and services provided through the app.

“Metro Pacific Group’s mWell is the Philippines’ first fully integrated health app which brings together experts in technology, medicine, wellness, and healthcare in one sustainable ecosystem,” said MPIC President, Chairman, and CEO Manny V. Pangilinan.

“This high-performing platform gives access to quality healthcare and empowers our countrymen to be in control of their health as they rebuild their lives coming out of the pandemic. We shall continue to set the standards in digital healthcare as we build a healthier nation and be recognized as the flag carrier for innovative digital healthcare in the Philippines,” he added.

In August, mWell set a record by staging the biggest nationwide online medical mission through its National mWellness Day. The simultaneous event brought together hundreds of volunteer doctors and health practitioners from across Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao to offer free consultations.

Just recently, mWell launched its mWellness Score through the mWell Fitfest Tour Zumba challenge that kicked off in Cebu. The mWellness Score is the country’s first personal in-app health tracker that measures an individual’s amounts of exercise, light activity, sedentary behavior, and sleep on a daily basis using data-driven methods. Through the feature, mWell users can get access to guidance toward a healthy lifestyle without having to spend on extra gadgets or wearables.

“We are celebrating so many firsts through sheer dedication, passion, and purpose. We were able to come up with these firsts in terms of product features, innovations not only for patients but also for doctors,” said MPIC Chief Finance, Risk, and Sustainability Officer Chaye Cabal-Revilla.

“We believe that uplifting the lives of Filipinos is a prerequisite to national progress. That’s why mWell helps uplift lives by providing access to better health, which after all is a basic right,” Cabal-Revilla continued.

mWell, according to Cabal-Revilla, is both a digital health service and advocacy “because at the heart of mWell firsts is our mission to bring healthcare closer to more Filipinos as we make health and wellness available and accessible to anyone, anytime, anywhere.”

Since last year, mWell has introduced many firsts in the country, including the following:

  • First health app accessible to migrant workers or OFWs
  • First to offer the most affordable telemedicine with free accident insurance package via its Healthsavers Plan
  • First to provide a cutting-edge, full-suite clinic management system designed by doctors, for doctors (mWellMD)
  • First to facilitate a portable mobile digital clinic to remote communities (mWell OnTheGo)

The culture of innovation continues for mWell—not just as a super app but as a fully integrated healthcare ecosystem that truly responds to the needs of Filipinos. Another first to be launched soon is the mWell Wellness Wearable. This is designed to democratize and empower more Filipinos by making wellness wearables more affordable especially in regional areas. Using the mWell Wellness Wearable, anyone can easily and more accurately track steps, physical activity, and sleep time through the mWellness Score on their watch. Soon they can even monitor temperature, oxygen level, heart rate and other vital signs that will make teleconsultation easier on the app. Another telemedicine innovation in the pipeline is the mWell kiosk to be used by local government units for their medical missions.
