Assessing eHealth Technologies Contribution to Health Governance and Program Management in the Philippines: Philippine Component of the Health Technologies for Informed Decision-Making of Local Governments (HATID ASEAN) Project in Three ASEAN Countries

The HATID ASEAN Project supports the national thrust for the advancement of eHealth and the initial attempts of forming a regional framework for eHealth governance in the Southeast Asian region. The project addresses cross-cutting issues regarding program management and service delivery done via existing eHealth technologies. It also involves the sharing of best practices and research findings on the development of eHealth technologies in the three participating countries of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), namely the Philippines, Thailand, and Indonesia. 
 
HATID ASEAN is an ASEAN Network for Drugs, Diagnostics, Vaccines and Traditional Medicines Innovation (ASEAN NDI) project for the ASEAN Committee on Science and Technology (COST) that aims to establish a convergence platform for the sharing of information and strategies on Information Communication Technology (ICT) for health in the ASEAN region. This initiative was launched during the culminating event (“Learning Interaction on eHealth Technologies in ASEAN”) of the 50th anniversary of the ASEAN and the ASEAN chairmanship of the Philippines in December 2017 at Sofitel Manila. 
 
The overall goal of the project is to develop a governance framework on local eHealth systems based on the results of an assessment of local health units’ implementation of eHealth technologies. The results of this assessment will also inform strategies 1) to develop the capacity of health staff to use eHealth systems for improved service delivery and enhanced health program implementation and management; and 2) to optimize the use of selected ICT programs for data collection, reporting, and analysis in order to automate processes, enhance completeness, coverage, and quality of information, and streamline performance tasks.
