This Friday, there’s going to be a roundtable aka chat room hosted by Exist and HP in cooperation with Mediag8way featuring key figures from PhilHealth, metro hospitals, and health maintenance organizations.
This time, the participants will tackle PhilHealth’s eClaims project and be given the opportunity to share their views, insights, and experiences on the following issues:
Digitizing the paper trail and advocating its adoption;
The current state of the relationship of HMOs with hospitals and the direction this would take as a result of this digitization initiative;
Adhering to a standardized methodology for delivering healthcare services to enable rapid and efficient scaling up;
Optimizing ICT and leveraging emerging technologies in changing healthcare delivery dynamics, such as the use of cloud-based solutions to address interoperability issues that hinder efforts of hospitals and insurance companies to share patient information; and
Reducing complexities for patients and other stakeholders (i.e. overcoming accounts receivables challenges, promoting information sharing among stakeholders, etc.)
The event is exclusive “on the ground” to participants, but I invite those who are interested to listen in to the discussions via our UStream.
You can also follow @ExistHealthIT for live updates.
I haven’t been very proactive lately with sharing what I’ve learned from the past healthcare events that I’ve attended, but just bear with me and I’ll make sure to publish the materials I’ve gathered soon enough.
UPDATE: Folks, here is a link to video clippings of the roundtable. I’m really satisfied that we were able to go through the bullets … watch out for the follow-up cover stories at ComputerWorld Philippines.
