Pasig City launched a citizen health information and monitoring system on Sunday which is seen to streamline communication and speed up the medical interventions of the local government.


Mayor Vico Sotto said Monday Pasig Health Monitor, an online-based data management system, was developed primarily to streamline the processes of the local government by setting a dedicated communication line between government health offices and facilities.

“Mula sa testing, sa contact tracing, sa quarantine facilities natin, hanggang sa treatment sa ating mga hospitals ay mas magiging madali silang makapag communicate (From testing, to contact tracing, to our quarantine facilities, to treatment in our hospitals, it will be easier for them to communicate),” Sotto said.

“Sa quarantine facilities natin, pag lumabas po ang test result nila mula sa Pasig Molecular Laboratory, in real time, malalaman po ‘yan ng nasa centralized quarantine facility na staff natin (In our quarantine facilities, when the patient’s test result comes out of our Pasig Molecular Laboratory, our staff in the centralized quarantine facility will know that in real time),” he added.

Another key feature of the Pasig Health Monitor is the Pasig Pass, a QR code-based contact tracing solution specifically developed for the city.

“Ito pong QR code-based na contact tracing natin, online na po ‘yung system niya pero sa Thursday io-open natin ito for public registration (Our QR code-based contact tracing, its system is now online but we will open it for public registration on Thursday),” he said.

The mayor noted that the use of Pasig Pass is not yet required, but he urged residents to download the QR code of the contact tracing system once it will be opened to the public for registration in the coming days.

“Mas magiging efficient, mabilis, at secure ang ating mga datos sa ating QR code-based contact tracing system (Our QR code-based contact tracing system will make our data management more efficient, fast, and secure),” Sotto said.
