PH Army launches information system project for COVID-19 monitoring
PASIG CITY, Aug. 2 (PIA) — The Philippine Army on Friday launched its COVID-19 Telemedicine Information System (PACTIS) Project.
Philippine Army Commanding General Lt. Gen. Gilbert I. Gapay led the launching of the project at the Army Headquarters in Ft. Bonifacio, Taguig City.
“We stress the importance of preserving the force so that we could focus on accomplishing our various missions. Through this system, we will be able to further protect our men and women working in the frontlines as well as their families from the onslaught of this pandemic,” said Gapay.
According to the Army, the project aims to systematically record and consolidate detailed information of identified Army personnel and their dependents that have been tested positive for COVID-19 in order to efficiently monitor and manage human resources in the midst of the pandemic.
Likewise, the PACTIS project aims to eliminate the manual collection and encoding of data from different Major Units and to systematically record the data of probable, suspected, cleared, recovered, and death cases within the Army.
The project was initiated by the Office of the Army Chief Surgeon and Office of the Army Chief Nurse through the Army Signal Regiment. (PIA-NCR)
