PhilHealth XII has also distributed three Plaques of Recognition to RHU Polomolok for being the first Health Care Facility to be accredited as KONSULTA Provider in the Region; RHU Sto Niño for having the highest number of first patient encounter and RHU Surallah for having the highest percentage (61%) of registered beneficiaries from its committed patient load.

PhilHealth XII Regional Vice President, Dr. Hector Zenon Leonardo P. Malate said that the nature and sources of primary health care is somewhat inadequate, imperfect but not hopeless.

“We need to strike the balance between the public’s quality of life and the connectivity to primary health care anywhere in the Philippines. By supporting  KONSULTA program, we will also be supporting better quality of life for Filipinos,” Malate added.

In conclusion, he challenged the participants to synchronize our efforts across all levels and policy domains to empower each one of us in the coming years.
