Week 1: E-health in the Philippines

Driving Question

In the Philippines, are free market forces, unfettered by government intervention or regulation, adequate for providing appropriate deployment of the national information infrastructure (aka the Philippine Health Information Network) in support of health and health care?


Compose an infographic showing the role of free market forces OR government in deploying the Philippine Health Information Network. The intended audience is the Department of Health Secretary.

The driving question is borrowed from an AMIA debate published by Shortliffe H. et al in JAMIA 1996 Jul-Aug;3(4):249-57, “The federal role in the health information infrastructure: a debate of the pros and cons of government intervention.”

The infographic will be evaluated using the rubric by Kathy Schrock.
