eHATID LGU holds signing ceremony with City of Cagayan de Oro at 37th PCHRD Anniversary
PASAY CITY, Metro Manila – The eHealth TABLET for Informed Decision-making of Local Government Units (eHATID LGU) held a signing ceremony in the 37th Anniversary of the Department of Science and Technology – Philippine Council for Health Research and Development (DOST-PCHRD) at the Philippine International Convention Center (PICC) on 15 March 2019 for the signing of the conforme document between eHATID LGU and the City of Cagayan de Oro. The conforme document stipulated the provisions that will be used in the granting of an exclusive limited license for the use of eHATID LGU electronic medical record (EMR) system.
The partnership with CDO is part of the ongoing technology process through the Technology Innovation and Commercialization (TECHNICOM) Program of the DOST Technology Adoption and Promotion Institute (TAPI) with support from PCHRD. The TECHNICOM program is currently facilitating the ongoing transition of eHATID EMR to a ‘Software as a Service’ model for public and private health facilities in support of the National eHealth Program (NeHP) of the National Unified Health Research Agenda (NUHRA). The technology transfer process is also mandated by Republic Act No. 10055, also known as the Philippine Technology Transfer Act of 2009.
CDO Mayor Oscar Moreno was present to sign on behalf of CDO as well as Dr. William Bernardo, Department Head of the CDO City Health Insurance Office (CHIO). Dr. Dennis Batangan and Dr. Maria Elissa Jayme-Lao signed on behalf of the eHATID LGU project, the Institute of Philippine Culture and the Ateneo de Manila University. Mayor Moreno also gave a short message after the signing ceremony.
The eHATID LGU team conducted the training and deployment of the EMR for the Justiniano R. Borja General Hospital (JRGBH) last 26 February 2019 in Cagayan de Oro City. The partnership with CDO came through a referral from Total Transcriptions Solutions, Inc. (TTSI) whom eHATID is currently partnered with for the integration of its EMR with eClaims.
