Global Virtual Care

Introducing Global Virtual Care

At Bupa Global, we know how important it is for our customers to get the healthcare they need, when they need it. So, in addition to the worldwide, world-class network of doctors and facilities available on their health plan, we’ve teamed up with Advance Medical to bring them ‘Global Virtual Care’ – a new smartphone app that provides confidential* access to international doctors by telephone or video call.

With Global Virtual Care, customers can speak to a doctor at a time that suits them, without worrying about work, holidays or family commitments. And because consultation notes are stored securely on the app, they’re ready to share with their regular family doctor next time they visit.

Please note that this app is available from 1 September 2019 to SME and Corporate customers, with access to MembersWorld, only.

Key features

At the touch of a button, Global Virtual Care provides customers with access to:

  • A global network of doctors, via phone or video
  • Medical guidance and consultations (for non-medical emergencies), to help customers better understand their symptoms
  • Same-day virtual appointments, available 24/7
  • Multiple language options
  • Consultation notes sent directly to their phone
  • Prescriptions and referral letters (subject to local regulations)

How do customers get the app?

Global Virtual Care app is available from the App store and Google Play.

Once downloaded, customers can log in using their MembersWorld login email address and password. Dependants under the age of 16 are automatically added to the primary policyholder’s account.

How can we support you?

We have a range of assets to help your customers learn more about the Global Virtual Care app including a flyer, introductory presentation and an FAQ document. Speak to your Bupa Global representative to find out more.
