2,000+ doctors, healthcare workers and volunteers offered to help run the project ‘e-Konsulta’.
Vice President Leni Robredo launched an online platform that aims to provide medical consultation to residents placed under the enhanced community quarantine.
The Bayanihan E-konsulta Facebook page can be accessed using only free internet data and will provide medical consultation for people with COVID-19 and other illnesses.
Robredo said her office worked during the Holy Week, after being “blasted” with calls for help.
“Iyong gusto po naming i-target dito ay ‘yong mga pasyente na hindi maka-access sa mga existing platforms, either because walang pambayad sa doctor… o dahil wala silang data,” Robredo mentioned in a Facebook Live video.
Over 2,000 doctors, healthcare workers and phone operators offered to help run the program ‘e-Konsulta’.
However, the program has its “limitations.” The Office of the Vice President must follow protocols and talk with the One Hospital Command for admitting patients to COVID-19 facilities.
For those who need medical assistance should proceed to the Bayanihan E-konsulta page, tap the Message button, type in the word “KONSULTA” or “TULONG,” and wait for the Office of the Vice President to reply back.
