Mommies, did you know that Generika Drugstore and FamilyDOC are under Ayala Corporation?
Generika, the pioneer in the retail of generic medicines, kung saan kami palagi nabili ng gamot dahil mas mura talaga tapos may reward points pa. And Family DOC, a 3-in-1 primary care facility: clinic, diagnostics facility and pharmacy in one mommies.
With almost 800 stores nationwide, Generika Drugstore provides greater access to affordable yet quality generic medicines. If familiar kayo sa post ko before, sabi ng pharmacist friend ko, same lang ang effect ng branded sa generic medicine, so sa generic nalang ako dahil mas mura mommies, upto 85% ang savings on generic medicines.
Generika customers can also avail additional in-store services like free blood pressures (na suking suki ako, haha), and I also appreciate the “Gamot Guide” especially for mommies with “momnesia” nakakalimutan ano ung guidelines ni Doc during check-up, big help ito right?
Plus, there are also scheduled free consultations. And Mobile Lab, mas mura yung laboratory fees mommies compared sa regular hospital rates.
The pharmacy chain is also active in reaching more communities nationwide, through its series of community events, Gabay Kalusugan.
Gabay Kalusugan promotes the value of preventive health and wellness, and communicates the efficacy of generic medicines in the prevention and cure of certain diseases. Dahil ika nga “prevention is better than cure”.
On the other hand, FamilyDOC is also reaching more communities. I’m surprised to know that they have a doctor from 8 am to 8 pm, laking gulat ko mommies, when I’ve also discovered na as low as Php 350 per consultation plus free pa ang follow-up check-up sa Family Doc.
Kasi di ba normally sa mga budgeted, kapag nagpacheck-up, hindi na nabalik kay Doc dahil another consultation fee, kaya big help yung free follow-up check-up sa Family Doc.
Family Doc’s new services such as vaccination, 2D echo, and OB sonogram are now being offered in all FamilyDOC clinics.
Tipid Tip: Alam nyo ba mommies, mas mura ng almost 30% off ang vaccines sa FamilyDOC kaya doon nalang kami magpapavaccine for my little boy.
Family DOC also aims to promote preventive health and wellness. Clinics hold a series of community events entitled “Ministry of Moms” Community Outreach like this will surely help mothers, especially the first time moms on proper nutrition, importance of breastfeeding as well as preventing sickness at home.
They also have a Kiddie Club, wherein pediatric patients can avail discounts and promos. Care Club, discounts and promos for patients with chronic disease like diabetes and hypertension. I also love how they promote tips and educational resources online, with a long term goal for families and communities to become healthier.
“Generika and FamilyDOC are the first touch points of healthcare in the community, and serve as the gatekeepers of health. By making services more accessible and affordable for our patients, we are contributing to the overall health and wellness of the communities” Mr.Paolo Borromeo, AC Health President and CEO.
Aside from Generika & FamilyDOC, they are also investing in various health technology solutions through Vigos. Vigos developed a proprietary electronic medical record system called Vigos EMR, which is being used across all Family DOC clinics and their mobile app Vigos Care is now being used in several coporations. Ito yung system nila na, kahit saan kang Family DOC clinic mag-visit makikita nila mga previous records mo.
They also have the MedGrocer, an FDA-licensed online pharmacy provides greater convenience for its patients and customers through its medicine delivery platform. Pwedeng i-order na online ang gamot, and next day, delivery na sa bahay ng patient.
Helpful ito sa mga may maintenance na gamot, or sa mga OFW na gusto masigurado na sa medicine fund napupunta ang pinadala nila para sa mga nanay,tatay or kamag-anak na may sakit.
I commend, Ayala Corporation for doing something in bringing convenience, affordable health care and medicines for more Filipino Families. It is indeed a big help for many, especially in today’s economic status of our country na halos tumataas ang mga bilihin and often neglected na ang health area, kapag may affordable na healthcare and medicines, marami na talaga ang hindi titipirin ang kalusugan.
