CMP signs MOA for better hospital services
The Sangguniang Panlalawigan (SP) on July 3 has agreed with the intention of Governor Carlos M. Padilla to sign a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with the Department of Health (DOH) for the installation of the Integrated Hospital Operations and Management Information System (IHOMIS).
IHOMIS is the software developed for electronic medical records and hospital information system for effective and quality health care by providing timely, relevant and reliable information. This system satisfies the Philippine Health Insurance Corporation (PhilHealth) requirements for electronic claims and member verification, and DOH reporting necessities implemented in 100 government hospitals.
The provincial government manages 5 hospital facilities in the province. IHOMIS is provided for free to interested government hospitals including the training and technical support subject to compliance with standards of Health Facility Development Bureau of the DOH, acceptability of ICT infrastructure in place and commitment for hospital management and operation support, and availability of at least two IHOMIS system administrators.
The use of information and communication technology (ICT) enables the health sector an equitable access to health care services most especially those in geographically isolated and disadvantaged areas, easier access to secure real-time and quality health data and information for evidence-based decision making.
This plan helps hospitals facilitate service delivery, make processes and management more efficient especially for populace seeking services.
The Veterans Regional Hospital (VRH) in Bayombong is already equipped with IHOMIS and provides e-claims. #bg
