It’s just barely a year, but this Clinic located in Ortigas Area is making waves in pioneering medical and diagnostic needs in a 24 hour operation, yes you read it right, they are in 24 hour open to all your medical emergency needs, and it is Aster Medical and Diagnostic Clinic located at the Ground floor of St. Francis Square, Dona Julia Vargas Avenue in Ortigas Center (Back of SM Megamall).
Aster is the first branch in South East Asia by Aster DM Healthcare, one of healthcare providers in the Middle East and India, founded in 1987, this Dubai headquartered health institution now operates a network of more than 290 establishments such as Clinics, Hospitals, medical centers, pharmacies, and even medical college they have.
In Metro Manila, most of Clinics don’t have a 24 hour operation, so in times of medical urgency your only choice is an Emergency Room of any Hospital near you, but what about those cases that it is not needed an ER function, you have to wait for the sunrise until some Medical Clinics open. Good thing Aster realize that and wholeheartedly they will assists you.
“Ensuring high quality healthcare has always been at the forefront of our group’s objectives. Expanding the hours of our first clinic in the Philippines will allow us to provide Filipinos with the quality medical services that they need, when they need it.” Explain by Joyce Alumno, Aster Country Manager.
Alumno during the blog conference last May 4, 2016 inform us, that what they are really proud of in Aster is their paperless system called Electronic Medical Records technology. This system is the first in this industry to which patients have log in or access to their medical records, it will be very helpful especially in collating all your files in terms of analyzing for any health issues you may undergoing.
Upon registration with Aster, an automatic SMS note thru your mobile phone will be sent containing your log in information, meaning you can also download those data after your check up, plus those medications you underwent. But Alumno stress that besides its accuracy, this EMR thing is 100% safe in going to public, the information is only with Aster and the patient only and nothing else.
“This technology streamlines the flow of information across our network. Check ups, as it is, is already stressful and we from Aster, are committed to delivering our promise of treating patients well. From the moment they are welcomed in our reception area and throughout the process, we want to make it as convenient and stress free as we possibly can.” Alumno said in closing.
