Again, the strongest, the biggest always gives you heads-up on what is going to happen.
PHIC Advisory 2016-0040 mandates the use of an EMR by all public health clinics beginning January 1, 2017. Failure to do so would lead to non-renewal of PhilHealth accreditation.
The advisory also advises facilities using the UPCM (HCI Portal) to shift to an EMR before January 1, 2017 since the PCB module in the HCI Portal will be discontinued in favor of the chosen EMR of the Rural Health Unit.
Clinics are required to choose ONLY ONE EMR to partner with.
