CHITS @ 10: A Decade of People-Centric eHealth

from: http://chits.ph/@10/

This month of May marks the 10th anniversary of the implementation of the Community Health Information Tracking System or CHITS. The homegrown electronic medical record system developed by the University of the Philippines Manila in 2004. Over the years, this single “seed” of innovation has come a long way since its implementation at the Elvira Lagrosa Health Center in Pasay City.

From its humble beginnings as a “Child Health Injury Tracking System” spearheaded by Dr. Herman Tolentino, Dr. Alvin Marcelo and the Pasay City Health Department through Dr. Marie Irene Sy, CHITS has become an eHealth tool that can improve health information system in the country.
