We don’t want you to waste time looking for the medical products you need, and we certainly don’t want you to waste money buying the wrong item.
That’s one of the reasons why we introduced 24/7 Live Chat on our website last year. By giving quick answers to your questions, we’re making it easier for you to buy what you want and need.
To help you further, we’re now introducing #askMedisave online broadcasts, using the latest streaming technologies. You can now hear from, and ask questions of, our product experts as they talk about and demonstrate some of the medical equipment we supply.
#askMedisave on Periscope
The #askMedisave broadcasts use the Periscope app, which is part of Twitter. Periscope allows us to talk to you and demonstrate our products in an excitingly interactive way.
When you join a Periscope broadcast (generally referred to as a ‘scope’) you not only see and hear the presentation, you can also ask questions and give feedback.
This interactive element makes a scope more than just a one-way presentation – it means you can ask the questions you want. You also benefit from the questions being asked by others, and, of course, from the answers provided by our experts.
#askMedisave on YouTube
We’ll also be streaming the #askMedisave broadcast live through the Medisave YouTube channel.
How do I watch an #askMedisave Periscope broadcast?
Download and install the Periscope app for your mobile device and open a Periscope account. Periscope is part of Twitter, so it’s really easy to set up Periscope if you have the Twitter app running on your device.
If you miss the #askMedisave broadcast, you can watch it on replay for up to 24 hours afterwards.
