Senator Richard Gordon stressed the need for a national health information system at the Department of Health that could help authorities and medical workers monitor patients’ medical records. | BLozadaINQ

Gordon, who is also the chairman of the Philippine Red Cross and also of the Senate Blue Ribbon Committee, said the national health information system would make it easier to monitor the progress of one patient’s diseases, the number of people vaccinated and those who’ve already been tested in the case of COVID-19.

“Mas madali nating ma-monitor kung ilan na mga nagagamot natin, o nababakunahan, o ilan na ang mga taong na-test na natin. Napakahirap gawin niyan kung ngayon pa lang natin gagawin, dapat noong araw pa nagawa na,” said Gordon.For more information on COVID-19, call the DOH Hotline: 86517800 local 1149/1150.
