Digital health marketplace wins in Globe’s first-ever 5G Hackathon

Social innovation “Alaga Health”, the first digital health marketplace and health service hub, won big at the recently concluded Globe 5G Hackathon.

The team behind the said platform, Dexter Galban, Von Payumo, and Bon Dela Cruz, received the top prize of P200,000.

They also got the special recognition of the 5G Globe of Good Award for their idea’s alignment to three United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and the Environment, Social, and Governance.

In their pitch presentation, Alaga Health showcased their mobile application’s interface that catered to three stakeholders, namely patients, healthcare workers, and administrative assistants within the healthcare industry.

“From the limited access to resources, and the unaffordable quality healthcare services, to the maldistribution of health professionals and the low integration of new technologies, we recognize that there are still several concerns that our country’s healthcare system needs to address,” said Galban.

Through the power of mobile tech and with the integration of 5G Technology, Alaga Health aims to make health services more accessible to anyone with a mobile phone and internet connectivity.

The Globe 5G Hackathon is a competition hosted in partnership with Animo Labs where the telco challenged students, professors, and professionals, from all over the Philippines to make their life-changing ideas a reality with 5G.
