Technology indeed makes life easier in different aspects of life. Moreso interestingly when it comes to medical applications as it impacts many lives, be it for the medical professional or the patients.
Such it the case for the Docquity Mobile App which we were recently acquainted with in its launch at the Discovery Primea Hotel last week.
Docquity Mobile App Launched
Docquity, Asia’s leading network app for medical professionals, was officially unveiled last April 27, 2018. Considered as the application to go to for continuing medical education (CME) and continuing professional development (CPD) units. CME and CPD are needed by doctors and other medical professionals like nurses, medical technologists to advance their careers.
Currently with a strong presence in Indonesia, Thailand and Singapore, Amit Vithal, Chief Operating Officer of Docquity Holdings Pte. Ltd., the company that owns the app, says they are now aggressively expanding their operations in the Philippines since it has around 60,000 practicing doctors at any given time.
“We want to serve the huge market here in the country since according to our extensive research, it’s difficult for a doctor to acquire CPD units because of their very busy schedule and limited options. Docquity addresses that specific need by providing an easily accessible, safe and trusted learning environment in the convenience of their smartphones and other portable devices,” Vithal explained during the launch.
Docquity has also partnered with Vireo Loadworks Inc. (vireoloadworks.com), a leading mobile phone loading app, to provide the technical expertise and marketing support to grow the app in the Philippines. Vireo also provided a top-notch team of doctors who will comprise a medical board that will provide sound advice and direction to Docquity’s efforts.
“Our vast local experience and expertise in technical mobile platforms were the primary considerations for Docquity to partner with us, not to mention our good relationships with leading doctor communities here such as the Philippine Medical Association and the Philippine Hospital Association among others,” says Dr. Loysa Orense, president of Vireo Loadworks Inc.
Aside from CME, the Docquity Mobile App also offers clinical discussions, peer consultations and medico legal support for doctors. It functions like a dedicated and exclusive social media app for doctors.
“This partnership is a first and a pioneering project in the country. The medical doctor community will be the primary group to try an app-based CPD units registration. We recognized it’s potential to help all doctors in the country wanting to renew their medical licenses through additional CPD units from the App. Docquity is accredited by the Philippine Regulations Commission,” added Orense.
