Soon the tedious manual method of recording, keeping and retrieving patient record in hundreds of rural health units (RHUs) in the country will be a thing of the past. This, as the Department of Science and Technology – Philippine Council for Health Research and Development (DOST-PCHRD) and the Ateneo de Manila University (ADMU) launched the eHATID LGU Project in Region 3 last June 17, 2015 in the City of San Fernando, Pampanga.
The eHealth Tablet for Informed Decision Making of LGUs or eHATID LGU project is envisioned to do away with much of the paper work involved in keeping patients records in RHUs through the provision of tablet devices that can generate Electric Medical Records (EMR). This makes it easier to process reports needed by government agencies such as the Department of Health and PhilHealth through a mobile application that can be accessed through any mobile device.
