The Department of Health-Metro Manila Center for Health Development (DOH-MMCHD), the principal health agency in the National Capital Region (NCR), and MYEG Philippines (MYEG PH), a market leader in electronic solutions championing government services online automation both in the Philippines and in Malaysia and a leading e-payment processing provider with 90,000 payment channels nationwide from cash payment options, credit cards, e-wallets, bank transfers etc., recently inked a memorandum of agreement to provide citizens with a more efficient, secure, hassle-free, and reliable online payment system for DOH transactions.
The partnership will allow payments for permits, licenses, accreditation, authorization, registration, certification, clearances, violations, and other DOH transactions that will benefit hospitals, health facilities, health workers, and other clients of DOH in Metro Manila.
The memorandum of agreement was signed by DOH-MMCHD’s Regional Director (Director IV) Dr. Gloria J. Balboa, Assistant Regional Director Dr. Aleli Annie Grace P. Sudiacal, and MyEG Philippines Chief Executive Officer Ann Margaret Saldaña on July 12, 2022, at the DOHMMCHD Office in Mandaluyong.
Regional Director Balboa emphasized that the MMCHD is the first DOH Office to make online payments available, saying that “leading in the digitalization effort shall make our processes more efficient and effective.”
MyEG PH CEO Ms. Ann Saldaña on the other hand commended the fast business processes of the regional office and committed that MyEG shall provide the same speed with their services. She added that technical, promotional, and customer support in using the new online payment system shall also be provided.
Also present during the ceremony were DOH-MMCHD Legal Affairs Unit’s Atty. Deane Denesy Jao and other office representatives, as well as managers from MyEG PH.
The online payment system through the MyEG platform www.myeg.ph supports the Republic Act No. 11032, also known as the Ease of Doing Business and Efficient Government Service Delivery Act, and Former President Rodrigo Duterte’s Executive Order No. 170. These issuances mandate all government departments and agencies to adopt a digital payment system for government disbursements and collections to promote efficient delivery of services, expedite transactions, boost revenue and reduce the risk of graft and corruption.
