Metro Manila (CNN Philippines) — In a landmark moment for the healthcare industry, Tamang Alaga is happy to unveil its latest venture — a strategic partnership with leading corporations to enhance employee health and wellness benefits.

This partnership aims to change how we approach healthcare within corporate settings. Companies are tying up with Tamang Alaga to offer employees a range of medicines and supplement benefits while initiating a new way to cascade health-related information.

Tamang Alaga: Where big companies turn for health benefits

“With the help of Tamang Alaga, we were able to strengthen our advocacy of promoting health and wellness among our customers. Allianz PNB Life is committed to providing a holistic approach to health and wellness through Allianz Healthbox. This program supports the wellness journeys of all Allianz PNB Life policyholders by giving them perks, freebies, and discounts for prioritizing their health. Tamang Alaga is one of our most generous partners and happily supports our advocacy,” states Allianz PNB Life on how Tamang Alaga transformed their company’s healthcare.

Tamang Alaga is a consortium of healthcare companies that would like to offer more health benefits to employees. It includes RiteMed, MSD, Mt. Grace Hospitals, and Unilab, among others. It establishes a strategic partnership with the human resource departments of organizations that have existing medical programs, ensuring a seamless integration of its platform into their healthcare system.

At the moment, Tamang Alaga boasts prestigious partnerships with renowned companies, including Allianz PNB Life, Phil. Gold Processing & Refining Corporation, Filminera Resources Corporation, and Medicare Plus Inc.

Here’s how these companies stay on top of their game:

- Allianz PNB Life is a well-established life insurance company in the Philippines. Whether individuals are starting their financial journey, preparing for retirement, or looking to grow their wealth, Allianz PNB Life offers a comprehensive range of insurance policies.

- Filminera Resources Corporation (FRC) is the largest operational gold mine in the Philippines, with mineral tenements along the branch of the Pliocene Philippine Fault System, known for several significant gold deposits.

- Philippine Gold is part of the B2Gold Corp., one of the world’s biggest operators of mines based in Vancouver, Canada.

- Medicare Plus Inc. is recognized as one of the leading healthcare providers in the country, offering accreditation with over 500 hospitals and clinics, as well as a vast network of over 10,000 medical and dental practitioners nationwide.

A shared vision in promoting employee health

While acquiring Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) coverage and securing medication benefits are undeniably crucial for employees, it is equally essential to underscore the importance of awareness. With the help of Tamang Alaga's platform, corporations can provide access to high-quality and affordable medications while promoting health literacy within their institution.

The partnership ensures employees are well-informed about health conditions, helps them manage and prevent diseases, and encourages medication compliance. Ultimately, the end goal of this collaboration is to keep the Filipino workforce healthy.

When employees are well-informed about health-related matters, they not only experience a sense of security but also make better, more informed choices for themselves and their families.

Co-creating an online pharmacy for employees through Tamang Alaga

Companies can have their own branded microsite where employees can conveniently purchase their medications and supplements, either partially or fully subsidized by the HMO or employers. Employers and HMOs can choose to extend a special rate for out-of-pocket medicine and supplement expenses for their employees for their personal use or for their family members. Of course, Tamang Alaga ensures rigorous quality control testing to guarantee top-quality medications from its partners.

Working together to craft exclusive employee perks

Through the platform, partner companies have the option to provide benefits. Rewards may help contribute to employee satisfaction and even boost morale. These benefits may include discounts, vouchers and other freebies.

Access to prescription medicines

“Tamang Alaga makes healthcare accessible and convenient to our customers by allowing them to purchase vitamins, supplements, and even maintenance medicines in the comfort of their own homes. An online pharmacist verifies the purchase of maintenance medicine — a game-changer in healthcare,” says Allianz PNB Life on how Tamang Alaga made prescription medicines accessible to their employees.

Employees or patients gain access to a wide range of prescription medications through the platform. They can conveniently upload their prescriptions for verification.

The uploaded prescriptions are promptly reviewed and verified by Tamang Alaga's Online Pharmacist, ensuring compliance with medical guidelines and safety measures.
