MPIC’s mWell sets new standards in digital health apps
Metro Pacific Investments Corporation (MPIC) headed by Manuel V. Pangilinan, popularly referred to as MVP, unveiled a digital health app called “mWell,” an all-in-one app meticulously designed for the Filipino’s holistic well-being, offering professional consultations, wellness programs, products, and delivery services.
In an event dubbed as PH1 hosted by beauty queen, TV personality, and youth advocate Catriona Gray, mWell celebrated the many firsts in a little over a year of its pilot launch and announced other pioneering efforts that help redefine not only telemedicine but the entire healthcare landscape.
“Metro Pacific Group’s mWell is the Philippines’ first fully integrated health app which brings together experts in technology, medicine, wellness, and healthcare in one sustainable living ecosystem. This high-performing platform gives access to quality healthcare and empowers our countrymen to be in control of their health as they rebuild their lives coming out of the pandemic. We shall continue to set the standards in digital healthcare as we build a healthier nation and be recognized as the flag carrier for innovative digital healthcare in the Philippines,” the president and CEO proudly said during the media conference, adding, “we have used technology to break geographic barriers.”
Pangilinan expressed his excitement in the group’s latest foray into digital health care as he believes that through collaboration with trusted health experts, this new milestone will pave the way for creating an ecosystem that brings integrated digital health care closer to every Filipino, even beyond the pandemic.
“We are celebrating so many firsts through sheer dedication, passion, and purpose. We were able to come up with these firsts in terms of product features, and innovations not only for patients but also for doctors. We believe that uplifting the lives of Filipinos is a prerequisite to national progress. That’s why mWell helps uplift lives by providing access to better health, which after all is a basic right. It is both a digital health service and advocacy because at the heart of mWell firsts is our mission to bring healthcare closer to more Filipinos as we make health and wellness available and accessible to anyone, anytime, anywhere,” MPIC Chief Finance, Risk and Sustainability Officer Chaye Cabal-Revilla said.
The culture of innovation continues for mWell—not just as a super app but as a fully integrated healthcare ecosystem that truly responds to the needs of Filipinos.
Another first to be launched soon is the mWell Wellness Wearable. This is designed to democratize and empower more Filipinos by making wellness wearables more affordable, especially in regional areas. Using the mWell Wellness Wearable, anyone can easily and more accurately track steps, physical activity, and sleep time through the mWellness Score on their watch. Soon they can even monitor temperature, oxygen level, heart rate, and other vital signs which will make teleconsultation easier on the app. Another telemedicine innovation in the pipeline is the mWell kiosk to be used by local government units for their medical missions.
mWell is supported by top names in technology, wellness, and healthcare including Microsoft, Highly Succeed, Telus, Maya, Bayad, Aktivo, Active8me, Smart, PLDT Home, PLDT Enterprise, PLDT SME, PLDT Global, PSG Global Solutions, The Solution, Department of Migrant Workers Overseas Workers Welfare Administration, Metro Pacific Health, Cardinal Santos Medical Center, Gabay Guro, Gabay Kalusugan, Department of Migrant Workers, Overseas Workers Welfare Administration, PCCSC, MedExpress, Healthlink, Lifeline 16-911, PhilCare and Generali.
