Startek Employees Get Maxicare Health Pod

In partnership with Maxicare, one of the pioneers in the Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) industry, employees at Startek’s Iloilo campus are the first BPO industry in the Philippines to gain access to a Health Pod. This is in response to a clamor for easy access to healthcare. Startek Philippines Inc led by Parry Nagpal, COO for the Philippines, has provided our Iloilo employees with easy access HealthCare right at our office doorsteps.



The Startek Maxicare Health Pod is a fully automated, self-service system where employees can consult with a care coordinator or doctor through the pod’s telemedicine interface. The pod is specially equipped with medical devices that allow for basic diagnostics, such as blood pressure, temperature and BMI, which are integrated with the pod and provide initial test results to a doctor for immediate reference during the tele-consultation. Additionally, employees will be able to secure a letter of authorization via easy access to the Maxicare portals making scheduling for healthcare visits faster, quicker and more accessible than ever before.

“Through our partnership with Maxicare, we are leveraging cutting-edge technology to provide employees with a state-of-the-art healthcare tool,” said Pete Martino, Startek’s COO of the Americas and Philippines. “This new generation of self-service healthcare brings significant value to our campus in Iloilo as employees can now access a wide range of health-related resources directly at their workplace. Going forward, we will continue to look for unique and beneficial ways to further enhance the strong and supportive culture we have created at Startek across all of our campuses, as our employee satisfaction is an important component that drives the exceptional service we provide for our clients.”
