MANILA, Philippines – President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III’s hometown gets first dibs at what may be the start of the country’s automated health care system.

The pilot phase of the “Wireless Access for Health” (WAH) project, which created an electronic health record system, was recently completed in Tarlac province.

He added: “By using technology efficiently, we will improve the lives of more Filipinos.”
