As part of the Cisco Corporate Social Responsibility Initiative: Project SPARK, Cisco donated HealthPresence® solutions to the PLDT-SMART Foundation (PSF) for a pilot program that will deliver critical healthcare services and help connect patients out of the Manila metropolis with doctors from the Asian Hospital and Medical Center. The first remote partner identified for this program is the Batangas Medical Center.
The telemedicine enabled by Cisco HealthPresence solutions combines network, mobile, cloud, and video technologies, and links medical providers with patients and colleagues in underserved communities.
Cisco intends to donate HealthPresence technologies, training and services support to PSF as part of the pilot program, which aims to support the Philippine government in transforming the healthcare delivery system. This pilot program also reinforces Cisco’s commitment to combining technology and human creativity to solve social issues and help communities thrive.
