A Premiere Authority On Healthcare in Iloilo City

TMC

The Medical City of Iloilo held a forum on the prevention and treatment of coronary artery disease entitled, “A Healthy Heart for the Busy Man,” at Hotel Del Rio, Iloilo City. It also served as an opportunity to market their new service in the hospital, the Cardiovascular Centre.CareNow

The Medical City Hospital, formerly known Great Saviour International Hospital, with their slogan “Where Patients Are Partners”, is considered as one of the country’s premiere authorities on healthcare. Equipped with state-of-the-art medical innovations and competent healthcare team, the hospital truly pushes itself on becoming the country’s most trusted healthcare facility for everyone, regardless of social status. More complex medical services, usually available only in developed countries like the US and Germany, are being made available and reachable for the Filipino people.

Interesting news during the forum was the announcement of the “CareNow Healthy Heart System.” It is a system which involves the utilization of a CareNow ECG mobile device. Yes, a device, not an app. It is truly a mobile phone where you can call and text using any telecom network but with an added ingenuity. The device, which came from Singapore, allows the user to record his heart rhythm and transmit this recording to the TMC’s 24-hour concierge, who can determine if medical assistance is needed. Every time a patient uses the ECG reading feature, the result is transferred to a CareNow Virtual Health Folder that can be accessed from anywhere in the world through the internet. Truly a first in the Philippines!
