|Consultative Planning on the Electronic Health Record System (EHRS) Validation
12-14 September 2018
Guided by the Philippine eHealth Strategic Plan for Universal Health Care as embodied in the DOH Strategic Framework and Policy, “Fourmula 1 Plus: Boosting Universal Health Care,” one of the identified policy and strategic activities to help drive timely, evidence-informed, data-driven decisions is through the implementation of the National eHealth Electronic Health Record System Validation (NEHEHRSV). The NEHEHRSV is envisioned to serve as the policy arm to implement national systems conformity assessment protocol for national health data reporting requirements of DOH and/or PhilHealth. Specifically, the NEHEHRSV shall confirm if an EHRS measures up and conforms to defined reporting requirements and submission protocols. Further, it is envisaged that its implementation will improve data capture, processing, aggregation, exchange and reporting on national health data requirements and standardize submission protocols among implementing health facilities and other health reporting institutions/organizations.
In line with this, the interagency National eHealth Governance Committee through the Knowledge Management and Information Technology Service (KMITS) shall be conducting the Consultative Planning on the Electronic Health Record System (EHRS) Validation. The aim of the workshop is two-fold: (a) review and refine the online registration form and interface, manual of operations and procedural guidelines; and (b) finalize the registration requirements for NEHEHRSV.
