The Philippines is one of the most technically savvy nations in Southeast Asia and was once considered the 11th most technically advanced country in the region in 2015. The 2017 NDHS reported that the top source for family planning information is sourced from the internet. However, the Philippines lags in turning these advantages into modernizing the health care system in the Philippines access to real-time information for decision making is a big challenge. In 2015, the Department of Health (DOH) together with other national agencies started the eHealth program, a national program “guided by the Philippine eGovernment Master Plan of linking government data centers and databases to create a secure network for government information systems, and harmonize information technology systems, programs and projects in the public sector through the Medium-Term Information and Communication Technology Harmonization Initiative (MITHI)”. Since 2015, there are very few public and private health facilities prioritize and allocated resources to institutionalize any form of Electronic Medical Record (EMR) to record patients’ personal history. This reality can be attributed to the following: (1) Internet connection in the rural areas where the Rural Health Units (RHUs) are located is often slow and with limited area coverage. At present, the health data of a patient remains in the health facilities where services were rendered and no possibility of sharing thru online exchange to other facilities; (2) Lack of funding for training of encoders and IT personnel managing the EMR at the municipal/provincial/regional levels; and (3) Low technical know-how of retirement age health professionals.


But modernizing the health system should not only be limited to recording and archiving of patient health information but should include equally important issues of privacy, survival and protection. There are no known EMR-based that include a Gender-based Violence (GBV) referral system in place for the detection, reporting, recording and referral of GBV cases in any health facilities in the country. This is although abused women would be more likely to see a health professional to seek treatment for concussions and injuries than talk with a law enforcer to file a complaint against their perpetrator.


In practice, when GBV cases are reported to or by health professionals, service providers routinely collect anecdotal information to obtain pertinent information. This information is normally collected using pens and paper forms. Once the information is completed, the GBV victim-survivor is to the next service provider until reaching the last person involved in data collection that involves a long ordeal of repeated narratives, often in a place where there is no privacy, and made the GBV victim-survivor emotionally and physically exhausted.


The EMR-based and expanded digital platform is envisioned to become an integral component of gender-responsive and respectful care for handling cases involving GBV victim-survivors. The digital platform will improve the efficiency and reliability of communication among service providers, promote the improvement of GBV referrals, and ensure gender-responsive and respectful care while safeguarding the right to privacy of every GBV victim-survivors.
