The Quezon City COVID Telemed program is an online system dedicated to addressing the needs of confirmed COVID-19 patients
The Quezon City local government unit (QC LGU) is introducing a new way for COVID-19 patients to consult with their doctors. The city announced on August 27 the launch of a telemedicine system solely dedicated to addressing the needs of confirmed COVID-19 patients.
The QC COVID Telemed program is an online system where patients who are undergoing home quarantine or admitted in the city’s Hope community-caring facilities can consult their doctors without having to personally meet them.
This new program also helps the city’s medical frontliners reduce their risk of exposure to the virus. Among those who will benefit best from it are doctors who are high-risk as it allows them to continue fulfilling their hospital duties. The Department of Health (DOH) donated 15 laptops and desktops to be utilized for the program’s operations. These will be distributed to the city’s HOPE facilities and selected health centers.
