The GMDC Telemedicine is an online consultation service which uses a video conferencing platform where clients can virtually ask doctors about their non-urgent health concerns while in the safety and comfort of their homes.
“We have seen how telemedicine is an extraordinary tool,” says President Richard S. Lim of Grepa. “By extending our telemedicine services outside our employees, people who are experiencing medical ailments and illnesses during this time can receive appropriate and timely medical advice without necessarily going to hospitals, minimizing the risk of being exposed to COVID-19,” he added.
