In the course of the program, the MyMedicalBank team participated by pitching our core product MMB HomeCare – a digital platform that connects healthcare professionals and patients and facilitates the delivery of health services at home, office or another location of the clients choosing. The nurses were glad to have the MMB team at the event, informing them of the opportunity to earn additional income as they care for patients in the spare time. According to some of the nurses, they have been looking out for platforms that can grant them the opportunity to make extra money in their free time. They were quite happy to hear about MMB HomeCare.
As nurses have ensured that their voice is heard as they play a pivotal role in healthcare delivery, MMB HomeCare has emerged as a voice in the health sector to advocate for the right of patients, a voice to lead and campaign for our clients and stakeholders to live a healthy life.
