Watch: “Covid-19 was a catalyst for the necessity of telehealth services” – Michael Psaila Debono, Tabib.mt

Have you ever been sick at home and have had to drag yourself out of the house to visit a doctor? Or been in a waiting room and shuddered at the thought of the amount of germs that the other patients may have?

Maltese digital platform Tabib.mt was launched in response to the constraints of the Covid-19 pandemic measures, with the purpose of bridging the gap between practitioners and patients whilst safeguarding social distancing rules.

Michael Psaila Debono, Tabib.mt’s business unit leader, explained to Newsbook.com.mt that, through Tabib.mt, video appointments can be made with specialised practitioners from different medical backgrounds.

“It’s a very simple process. On the homepage, you have a different choice of medical practitioners coming from different backgrounds… for example, we have pediatricians, GPs, physios and so on. Once you’ve made your choice, you click on that practitioner, book a slot and that’s it basically,” he said.
