BOI approves ₧26-M health tracking system software project


The Board of Investments (BOI) has approved the P26-million health tracking system software project by Pivotal Peak Digital Health Solutions Inc. (PPDHSI), a spin-off company of UP Manila for the Community Health Information Tracking System (CHITS) technology.

The BOI noted that PPDHSI was categorized as a new developer of software under innovation drivers based on Executive Order 226 or the Omnibus Investments Code.

The company, which is applying for the commercialization of CHITS technology, will build its facility in Barangay Moonwalk, Parañaque City. Operations are slated to begin in April 2021, employing 48 workers in its full capacity.

CHITS is a certified electronic medical records (EMR) system, a crucial information system tool of health facilities and practitioners.

PPDHSI has obtained copyright protection for CHITs as it intends to continue to develop, maintain, upgrade and commercialize the software. “The use of EMR would allow healthcare facilities, both private and public, to provide faster and quality health care services, especially now that every Filipino is entitled to them under the Universal Health Care Law.  EMR systems are useful in identifying Covid-19 trends and potential cases, while aiming to limit the spread of the virus by measuring the number of beds being used,” Trade Undersecretary and BOI Managing Head Ceferino Rodolfo said.

The company seeks to craft an integrated platform connecting patients, doctors, clinics and hospitals. Currently working with government agencies, PPDHSI wants to establish a universal healthcare system through its platform.

The company and SeeYouDoc Corp. recently inked a partnership for an integrated telemedicine system.

This is the third project the BOI has approved this week. Earlier, it greenlighted a P919.4-million biomass plant in Zamboanga del Sur and a P549-million irradiation facility in Rizal.
