Find Out More


The eHATID LGU project (eHealth TABLET for Informed Decision Making of LGUs) is one of the eHealth and Community Empowerment through Science and Technology (CEST) projects of Philippine Council for Health Research and Development (PCHRD) of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) with Ateneo De Manila University.

It provides health Information system and decision-making support to LGUs through an Electronic Medical Record (EMR) that generates particular health reports for the Department of Health (DOH) and the Philippine Health Insurance Corporation (PhilHealth). It aims to improve efficiency and transparency among stakeholders using an enhanced health information system (HIS) model that promotes health information convergence and informed decision-making.

The project supports and is compliant with the information technology requirements of the PhilHealth Outpatient Benefit Package Plus (OPB+) otherwise known as the TSeKAP – Tamang Serbisyo para sa Kalusugan ng Pamilyang Pilipino. The TSeKAP will cater primarily to the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps) beneficiaries


For 2014-2015, the eHATID LGU project will deploy the application to 450 cities and municipalities nationwide. Two (2) tablet devices per city/municipality will be given to the selected sites. As of 28 January 2015, the project already received 132 Letters of Intent (LOI) to join the project from various Local Government Units (LGUs) of the country. Of the 132 LOI from LGUs, 43 are from Luzon, 66 from the Visayas and 23 from Mindanao. The province of Marinduque is expected to have 100% EMR adoption through the eHATID LGU project while province of Antique currently has 83% of the LGUs participating in the eHATID LGU through their LOI.

The deployment of the eHATID LGU devices and application will be part of the roll-out for PhilHealth Outpatient Benefit Package Plus (OPB+) otherwise known as the TSeKAP – Tamang Serbisyo para sa Kalusugan ng Pamilyang Pilipino which starts on February 2015.


The main product of the project is called the eHATID LGU Application, a software application currently designed for mobile android devices. Its main feature is an Electronic Medical Record (EMR) system that can function whether or not you have Internet connection. The application also aims to conveniently provide analytical information about the health status of the local area of its users as well as have integrated functionality within the LGU and between Rural Health Units (RHUs) and other government entities.

All the eHATID LGU data are synched to a central database via the government cloud facilities of the Advanced Science and Technology Institute of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST ASTI). Security protocols are also strictly implemented to comply with the policies and program requirements for data security, privacy and confidentiality purposes.
