[20 April 2016] PLDT's wireless services arm, Smart Communications (Smart) has partnered with Cebu-based Eversley Child Sanitarium to further improve the delivery of health care to patients in the northern part of the province.

Some 24 hospital personnel of Eversley Childs Sanitarium participated in the SHINE OS+ Users Training
Workshop conducted by Smart early this month. Smart was represented by Atty. Maria Jane C. Paredes,
head of Public Affairs VisMin (seated, rightmost), while Eversley was led by Dr. Lope Ma. Carabaña,
medical center chief (seated, second from right).

Smart recently signed a memorandum of agreement with Eversley to facilitate the referral of patients from the rural health units that are located in the northern part of Cebu to Eversley and if needed, referral from Eversley to Vicente Sotto Memorial Medical Center, which is the regional hospital in Cebu.

This will be made possible via the award-winning mobile health platform Secured Health Information Network and Exchange (SHINE) OS+. It is an electronic medical record platform leveraging on open-sourced technologies developed in partnership with Ateneo Java Wireless Competency Center (AJWCC).

SHINE OS+ has opened its API to provide access to other systems to enable data sharing or data exchange for interoperability that can greatly impact the function of the local government and national health agencies in improving its healthcare services, adhering to its goal on Universal Healthcare program.
