This AI-Powered Health App Can Double As Filipinos' Personal Doctors During The Pandemic And Beyond

It's the first of its kind in the digital health industry, and best of all, it's absolutely free

They're pressing health concerns that many Filipinos have today: as the pandemic rages on, will there be enough hospital resources to allocate to patients who don't have COVID-related concerns, yet still need medical attention? More so, how safe is it, really, to go for a physical doctor's appointment at this time? 


The answers are unfortunately not as straightforward as we wish they were. Entire healthcare systems have been disrupted by the health crisis, and medical institutions are struggling to win the race of evolving with the times be able to serve all people, and not only COVID-affected patients. No one can truly answer those questions with full certainty. 


But amidst the bleakness of the present is a scientific and technological breakthrough that could very well be the modern solution Filipinos seek: a user-friendly mobile health app powered by artificial intelligence

More so, Pulse doesn't only benefit patients. Doctors and other healthcare workers are as much on the receiving end of the app as much as its users. 


In a time when human resources are scarce in hospitals, Pulse holds the potential to free up doctors' time spent treating mild cases. It allows them to focus on patients with more serious health problems, and even gives them the chance to be less tired when they do (less patients in a day means more energy to reserve for major cases, after all), thus having positive implications on human error in healthcare, too. 


Having an AI-powered "doctor" in the palm of patients' hands will prove especially powerful once again as the country continues to grapple with COVID-19; patients can significantly lessen the frequency of physical check-ups thanks to Pulse's accuracy and specificity, safeguarding themselves and their families from the possibility of infection.

In a related vein, Pulse also gives users access to AI-powered knowledge from all kinds of doctors (e.g.: the combined knowledge of oncologists, pulmonologists, dermatologists, cardiologists, neurologists, and more). This lessens the need to have to schedule multiple doctor's appointments, a situation where COVID exposure is always a risk. 


Last but not least, Filipinos will be happy to realize that medical-related expenses can significantly be reduced with the help of Pulse. If the app can give them the answers and medical advice that they need without having to pay for a doctor's visit, their wallets will surely thank them for the newfound way to save! 


In the end, Pulse aims to empower the Filipino to be proactive with their health through a safe, affordable, well-researched, and modern way. It's definitely a great strategy in improving Filipinos' conscientiousness when it comes to their health, and at this point in history that's proven that health is indeed wealth, Pulse couldn't have arrived at a better time.
