The KonsultaMD superapp, a consolidation of KonsultaMD, HealthNow and AIDE, will launch in the first quarter of 2023, packed with first-in-the-market features on end-to-end patient care that’s set to change the country’s healthcare landscape.
This follows the closing on August 18, 2022, of the agreement among Globe Capital Venture Holdings, Inc. (917 Ventures), the corporate venture builder of the Globe Group, Ayala Healthcare Holdings Inc. (AC Health), the healthcare portfolio arm of the Ayala Group, through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Vigos Ventures, Inc., and Salud Interactiva S.A. DE C.V. to consolidate Global Telehealth, Inc. (KonsultaMD), HealthNow, Inc. (HealthNow) and APPPPS Partners, Inc. (AIDE).
The consolidation will integrate the three applications into one superapp, bringing together KonsultaMD’s expertise in on-demand consultations, HealthNow’s strength in medicine delivery, storage of medical records, and implementation of vaccination and other health programs, and AIDE’s mastery of providing health services in the home.
Globe President and CEO Ernest Cu noted how the partnership further elevates the quality and scope of service across the three apps. “The consolidation of KonsultaMD, HealthNow and AIDE is a step towards achieving our shared vision of providing healthcare for all. Through the superapp, Filipinos from across the country will be able to conveniently and immediately access quality healthcare and avail of related services such as diagnostics and medicine deliveries through their phones— an all-in-one digital solution to ensure a healthy nation,” said Cu.
