Regional Telemedicine Center of ZCMC signed MOU with Languyan Tawi-Tawi
July 6, 2022
 
ZCMC has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding with the Languyan Local Health Board to establish telemedicine services in the said area. A team of doctors led by the Medical Center Chief, Dr. Afdal B. Kunting, traveled to the Languyan Municipality of Tawi-Tawi on July 4, 2022, to sign the MOU. ZCMC, as the first party to provide quality health care through accessible specialty service referrals through the Regional Telemedicine Center, and Languyan Mayor Abduhasan Ismail I. Sali, as the second party representative, agreed to promote cooperation and complementation of the agreed health services. Languyan is also the first BaSulTa area to partner with the ZCMC Telemedicine Center. The Telemedicine Center will provide ICT (information and communication technology) equipment to Languyan that will be utilized by doctors and other healthcare workers to refer patients with complicated cases. Different specialists will attend to the referrals and guide the referring doctors in managing the patients.
The medical team, which was composed of doctors with different specialties, had the opportunity to conduct a medical check-up, minor surgery, and the operation "tuli." Dr. Aeesha Y. Pingli, a toxicology specialist, and two (2) toxicology nurses trained local healthcare workers on how to respond to poisoning from marine toxins, chemical ingestion, and exposure. The team also conducted a lecture on HIV awareness delivered by nurses from the ZCMC Treatment Hub.
The visit was concluded with the commitment of cooperation and logistical support from the Mayor of Languyan to ensure the delivery of quality health services to the constituents. On the other hand, ZCMC commits to bridging the gap between people's health needs and specialty services.
