The city government is reviving the Tawag kay Doc telemedicine program which ended recently after three months of implementation.
On Monday, Mayor Sara Duterte said over the city government-run Davao City Disaster Radio the city government will partner with the Family Medicine practitioners for the renewed implementation of the program.
During its first implementation, the city government partnered with the Philippine College of Physicians and the Philippine Pediatric Society.
Duterte said that just like in its first implementation, the second round also aims to cater to residents of the city who need medical attention that, instead of going to a hospital or clinic, they just have to call the central 911 and ask to be connected to the telemedicine.
Residents have been urged to skip hospitals and clinics amid the coronavirus pandemic unless in cases of emergency to avoid contracting the virus.
“Duna tay Tawag ka Doc Part 2. Ang atong mga kaigsuonang Dabawenyo di na kinahanglan moadto og hospital, pwede na sila motawag sa 911, then ang 911 i-link sila sa correct nga doctor, then ang doctor ang motubag kung unsa imo kinahanglan, and padalhan ka og 911 prescription,” mayor said.
