MediCard introduces Fast online approval for laboratory requests in 5 easy steps

For some, part of having an HMO is securing a letter of approval (LOA) for laboratory tests requested by doctors to help them diagnose health problems accurately. These tests include blood tests, urinalysis, chest x-ray, among others. 

A letter of approval basically confirms that such tests are indeed part of a member's HMO coverage and authorizes the diagnostic clinic to proceed with the requested tests. However, securing an LOA may mean going through a process that can be slow and inconvenient sometimes: A medical attendant gets your card, then calls the HMO provider to advise them of the laboratory test that needs to be done. Afterwhich, the patient waits for the approval. 

Now, Medicard, a leading health maintenance organization in the Philippines, takes the hassle out of getting LOA as it introduces Medicard Online LOA -- an online application that allows you to easily request for a letter of approval for your laboratory and diagnostic tests in the comfort of your own home or straight from your mobile phone on the go. 

"MediCard constantly aspires to make quality healthcare accessible and more convenient for our members because we value their time. With innovations such as the Medicard Online LOA, we are able to eliminate a lengthy and time-consuming wait period to get your LOA since online application allows quick user convenience," said Dr. Nicky Montoya.

Getting an LOA for laboratory and diagnostic tests can be done in five easy steps. 

1. Go to  www.medicardphils.com  and click the MediCard Online LOA tab.
2. Fill out the online form with your MediCard ID number and upload a copy of your doctor's request. 
3. Choose a MediCard free-standing clinic or any accredited clinic/hospital where you wish to avail of the test, 
4. Your LOA and instructions will be sent via e-mail. 
5. Lastly, submit the LOA to the hospital together with a copy of your doctor's request and a copy of the email. 

Save yourself the inconvenience of waiting or long procedures and prioritize your good health now with the MediCard Online LOA. 

Issuance of the LOA and access to select providers are dependent on the existing plan and coverage.

San Pedro Barbeque Sauce Atbp.!

Were you like me who grew up in a family who loves to eat marinated grilled/fried food? Ever since I was a child, we would always buy grilled food on the streets. (Ihawan sa kanto. Ganyan!) Grilled food has been and is always part of our daily lives with or without special occasions. Summer outings, Christmas, New Year, birthdays, anniversaries, Sundays ..oh we just love our mom's barbeque. And the secret... will stay secret! ✌🏻

Recently,a friend gave me this San Pedro Barbeque Sauce ATPB! to test. Guess what? It's almost the same as what my mom's preparing to marinate meat. Malasa! Salty and sweet with a kick of pepper is the best way to define the experience. It's now a staple in our home. It's not only use to soak in food, it can also be a sauce "sawsawan".  I tried it with fried Dory...masarap!

To give you a brief background of this "divine" sauce I will share with you the owner's story.

It was initially an attempt to come up with a small business of selling barbeque on the streets until people started requesting to buy marinated meat whenever the BBQ store is closed. This triggered the idea of selling the yummy fusion in a bottle.  

After 10 years of testing, San Pedro BBQ Sauce at Iba pa! has finally engaged in sharing their delicious blend to the public.

So, what are you waiting for? Timely and  Perfect for the festive season. Like and follow them on Facebook San Pedro Barbeque Sauce Atbp! for more information.

Grab a bottle now!

One2Shop: Making e-Commerce Fast and Easy for Today’s Market

Contrary to what you might have read or heard, the oldest profession in the world is none other than trading. And thanks to the Internet, its impact on our lives only gets bigger and bolder every year. There are a lot of e-commerce websites that now cater to the needs of online shoppers everywhere. Surprisingly, there are none that cater specifically to the tastes and wants of Filipinos.

Enter One2Shop, the newest e-commerce destination for Filipino online shoppers located all over the Philippines. Up until now, the bulk of the "online shopping malls" available in the country have been mostly foreign. But with One2Shop, these e-commerce websites will finally have the much-needed local touch that users will love.

According to a recent research conducted by Google, more than half of the population in the Asia Pacific region prefer to shop through mobile apps. Meanwhile, over 40% like to use their browser to visit their preferred e-commerce web sites. This is also very reflective of the recent Black Friday shopping spree where 40% of the purchases were all done online.

The opportunity to capture a meaningful portion of the market is definitely hard to pass on, especially since the coverage of shopping sites just keeps on growing. 

One2Shop aims to grow right alongside the growing e-commerce market, harnessing the power of both the web and various social media channels to better engage its target audience. 

One2Shop’s advantage over competing digital platforms is its use of the latest high-tech solutions available for e-commerce websites. Its back-end is built on top of Amazon Web Services, and it relies on various social media channels and advertising networks to deliver its content and offerings to its users.

One2Shop will first be available through its official web site, one2shop.com, and then through the One2Shop mobile app for Android.
