Social media app for doctors launched in PH

Docquity, an Asia-based social media app for medical professionals, has expanded its presence in the region by officially unveiling the mobile app in the Philippines.

Docquity has been giving doctors, nurses, and medical technologists the chance to advance their respective careers by offering continuing medical education (CME) and continuing professional development (CPD) units on the go.

The startup, which also provides clinical discussions, peer consultations and medico legal support for doctors, has a huge influence in Indonesia, Thailand and Singapore, with over 60,000 practicing doctors currently in the network.

“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,” said Amit Vithal, chief operating officer of Docquity Holdings.

Mobile phone loading app Vireo Loadworks is assisting Docquity app with the technical expertise and marketing support to build the application in the country.

“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,” said Dr. Loysa Orense, president of Vireo Loadworks.

“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,” added Orense.
