“  It even has BP [blood pressure], ECG [electrocardiogram], temperature, and blood sugar tests that doctors can see in real-time,” it added.

Evangelista also hoped that the telemedicine services would be available to other areas in the Philippines.

⁣The ECG that Evangelista was referring to measure electrical activity, rate, and regularity of one’s heartbeat, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention defined telemedicine as a process where doctors give diagnostics and therapeutic services through communication technologies such as two-way video, e-mail and smartphones.
