At your regular calling rate, call 0417747000 and doctor consultations, ambulance services, clinic references are now a call away for any health–seeking person in Uganda. At the Health Call Centre, anyone can access a trained and licensed Doctor, Pharmacist and other health professionals at any time.
TMCG Director and the first beneficiary of the Warid Youth Entrepreneur Fund, Dr. Davis Musinguzi said he has partnered with a group of other dynamic Doctors and entrepreneurs to form The Medical Concierge Group (TMCG), a consortium of innovative ventures in the health care industry.
“TMC Call centre offers a significantly different experience to anyone nationwide by providing Immediate quality health care attention, making health care services accessible and affordable by phone call, SMS, Video Chat and Social Media. Our business-to-business arm will be in partnership with hospitals, Insurance companies, Corporates, NGOs and any institution seeking to innovatively expand their services to a wider section of the public through telemedicine and remote medical monitoring services,” explained Dr. Musinguzi.
The TMC Call Centre is currently located at Plot 1390, Nabunya Road, Rubaga. This is where callers advised to have physical medical assistance can walk in if they so wish or be referred to where they can access similar services in the public or private health system.
Dr. Elioda Tumwesigye, Minister of State for Health in charge of General Duties presided over the Launch and applauded TMCG stating,
“The bulk of Uganda’s disease burden is a result of preventable disease resulting from lack of information and education. Innovative solutions like TMC Call Centre improve accessibility of health services and improve access to health information and education anytime, anywhere ultimately improving health outcomes. The Ministry of Health is promoting e-health to ensure that government and our partners obtain value in innovations in this digital age.”
The Medical Concierge Group’s commitment to promote access to health services to all Ugandans was demonstrated through their recently concluded annual Medical Camp for Street Children. Over 500 children received free health services, food and new sets of clothes on the day.
