The Quezon City Government moved to facilitate access to maternal and newborn information as it launched an “online information exchange database” aimed at allowing the city’s health centers to gain access to the medical records of mothers who gave birth at private lying-in clinics for faster delivery of health services.
The program, called the Seal of Excellence Plus (SOE Plus), is expected to eliminate delays in accessing information about mothers and infants and ensure quicker response or delivery of health services such as immunization or vaccination of newborn.
Mayor Herbert M. Bautista said during the 5th Maternal and Neonatal Health Summit at Sequioa Hotel that the most important objective of SOE Plus is to protect the mothers, pregnant women and their children by ensuring their safety and the quality of service provided by private lying-in clinics in terms of maternal and child care.
The move also aims to reduce the number of death among mothers and infants, in line with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDG).
SOE Plus Program
The program requires private lying-in clinics in the city to submit the medical records of mothers who give birth at their clinics and data on their infants to the city’s health centers.
Using a computer application developed by the Information Technology Development Office (ITDO), the medical and health information are encoded and transmitted online to the city health center.
The information would enable the city’s health centers to identify and locate the mother and her newborn in an area and provide them the health services they needed.

The SOE Plus complements the city’s policy on private lying-in clinics, called the Seal of Excellence, which was implemented last year. The Seal of Excellence program, undertaken in partnership with United Laboratories Inc. (Unilab Inc.), monitors and recognizes private lying-in clinics which have fully complied with the standards set by the Department of Health (DOH), PhilHealth, and the city’s regulations. At least 44 private lying-in clinics were given awards for meeting the quality healthcare standard.

In addition to these programs, the city health department also presented a website to help mothers locate the nearest quality lying-in clinics in their areas or near their residences.

Aside from facilitating health services, the data recording aspect of the SOE Plus would also help the city government in creating plans on health policies, such as the quick registration of newborns.

Mayor Bautista said that the city government is looking into expanding the online database to include hospitals in the city to allow doctors to have immediate access to medical records in cases of emergency.

The mayor said the city could adopt the same strategy for other health services especially for senior citizens clinics, therapeutic clinics, chemotherapy clinics, or dialysis centers, if the Seal of Excellence proves successful. scroll back to top
