Globe Business, the enterprise arm of Globe Telecom, said Tuesday it is innovating hospital records systems to unburden healthcare frontliners and provide better care for patients.
Maridol Ylanan, Globe Business MSME group strategy and marketing head, said the healthcare crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic propelled the digital shifts of many hospitals in managing medical records amid the challenges of maintaining synchronized data and paper-based manual recording.
Globe Business is at the forefront of digitization and a trusted partner of micro, small and medium enterprises in their digital journey.
Globe Business’ Hospital Information System, developed by HYBrain, was made available to the public and supported the digitization of medical laboratories of private companies such as San Miguel Corp., Suyen Inc., Manila Diagnostic Center for OFW and Manila Healthtek Inc.
Globe Business also takes pride in providing support to the digital journey of several hospitals including Bacolod Adventist Medical Center, Dadiangas Medical Center in South Cotabato, Corazon Locsin Montelibano Memorial Regional Hospital in Bacolod City, Tarlac Medical City and Premiere Medical Center-Nueva Ecija branch.
This integrated hospital information system promotes seamless collaborations between departments and physicians while keeping patient records up to date. It also eases up the hospital’s accounting, finance and total hospital management tasks by digitizing clinical records, laboratory information management up to back-end processes.
The Department of Health is requiring hospitals to have at least an electronic medical records system but most hospitals, especially level 1 institutions in the provinces, still resort to doing manual paperwork as part of their documentation process.
This upgrade may become a hospital standard in maintaining a manual records system because manual encoding puts patient records at risk of loss or mismanagement and is very tedious and time-consuming for our healthcare professionals.
Globe Business offers a wide range of digital support to hospitals in managing medical records as part of the overall aspiration of empowering businesses through digital solutions, expanding networks and owning their success.
The digital solution for hospitals is cost-effective and accessible, as Globe Business teamed up with BPI Business Banking to offer the business technology loan program, an exclusive term loan facility specifically built to make Globe Business digital solutions accessible through flexible payment terms.
Through Globe Business UPSTART loyalty program, MSMEs including hospitals that rise to the challenge of digital transformation can be rewarded with free training and certificate courses on information and communication technology for their staff.
