1st Philippine eHealth Summit

 

The  Department  of  Health   (DOH)  and  the Department of Science and Technology  (DOST)  are hosting the First Philippine eHealth Summit on 4 February 2014, 8:00 AM to 8:00 PM at Sofitel Philippine Plaza, Manila, with the Theme: eHealth Innovations for Universal Health Care.

The Summit aims to be a platform for exchange of information and expertise on what has been done and what is currently being done on eHealth in the country. The forum will also be a venue for presenting the Philippine eHealth Plan and Deliverables, to gather stakeholders’ inputs, and to engage them, for better buy-in, to achieve the vision of a widespread access to health care services and health care information in support of a safer, better, more equitable and responsive health system.

Part of the program is an eHealth Marketplace and Poster Exhibit. The latter is a contest on eHealth research, projects and applications for undergraduate students and professionals.  If interested, kindly contact the secretariat.

We envision the eHealth Marketplace to be vibrant with ideas, products and services on eHealth innovations from the public and private sectors as well as international development partners.

Cagayan Valley researchers, scientists and experts attended a one-day seminar workshop on Basic High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) Seminar Workshop at the Cagayan State University – Carig Campus, September 16.

The seminar was collaboration between the Department of Science and Technology Region 02 - CVHRDC, Cagayan State University – Carig Campus and the DKSH Group of Companies.

“Researchers and scientists too can now be rich and famous” stressed Dr. Maria Nilda P. Muñoz, Department of Science and Technology (DOST) Balik Scientist on her talk about Quality Control and Instrumentation during the said seminar.

Dr. Muñoz said that by exploring research, one can be famous of producing good and quality products. Thus, she encouraged the country’s scientists and researchers to write more proposals specifically focusing on the priority areas for research of the Cagayan Valley Health Research and Development Consortium (CVHRDC) which includes herbal medicine. She then mentioned the main difficulties faced by researchers in herbal medicine research including the lack of equipment or facility, lack of research data, lack of appropriate control mechanisms, lack of education and training and lack of expertise.

The Diethelm Keller Siber Hegner or popularly known as the DKSH is situated at Zurich, Switzerland is known in the Philippines as one of the leading distributors of High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) machines which Dr. Muñoz mentioned in her talk is essential in performing more quality and significant researches. HPLC is an analytical process to separate compounds dissolved in a solution.

The seminar was an answer to the problem on the lack of equipment in herbal researches which then featured the use of the High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) and its various applications on analyses.

Ms. Lisa T. Capsa, Account Executive on Life Sciences of DKSH, introduced the vision and mission of the company while Ms. Eileen Valeri P. Cruz, Applications Specialist, differentiated Gas Chromatography (GC) and High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC). She said that a right configuration is needed due to the high cost of HPLC.

“Teach everyone what you know” a tip shared by Dr. Muñoz to the participants on how better researches can be developed in the Region 2. Dr. Muñoz added that there should be no secrets within the consortium and that whoever knows a certain analyses technique should share within the members.

UNDERSTANDING THE BASICS OF HPLC. Ms. Eileen Valeri P. Cruz, DKSH Applications Specialist, shows to the participants the basic usage of the High Performance Liquid Chromatography machine.

 

Still winners at heart.
