Make a reaction why we have to start the course in PAS with knowing our Country’s history and culture roots.

The Republic of the Philippines is a constitutional democracy, with the President as head of state. The Philippine Constitution is the fundamental basis of the laws of the land. The country has had several Constitutions, but the current one was adopted through a nationwide plebiscite in 1987. It is supported by other laws, such as the Civil Code, the Labor Code, the Omnibus Investments Code, and the National Internal Revenue Code, as well as by rules and regulations passed by government bodies. The latter include rulings, letters or instructions, circulars, memoranda, administrative orders, judicial orders, and pronouncements, as well as laws adopted by local government within the scope of the Constitution.
In PAS course, there are approaches taking within its purview all aspects of administrative activities. The goal is to find out and enunciate the principles or ideals underlying these activities.
Administrative behavior is part of behavioral sciences and the study of public administration cannot be complete without the study of individual and collective human behavior in administrative situations.
These approaches made more sense and had greater relevance than other approaches as it took into consideration the fact that political, social, economical and psychological environments have effect on human motivation and which ultimately has an effect on the work output of an individual. These also helped to develop an understanding of what, how and why the way public administration act. These showed that the way administration is conducted is influenced by human sentiments, presumption biases and perceptions, which many of us may have experienced first-hand during our interaction with government organizations and public…...

Comparative Research on the Development and Implementation of Philippine Health Information Systems

...information systems (Health professionals should be closely involved in implementation)Joel Ladner Editor—Littlejohns et al identified the reasons for failure to implement a hospital information system in South Africa,1 but they do not emphasise the need for health professionals to be closely involved. In 1997 we conducted a field test of prototype tools and information flows over six months, with the overall goal of developing a computerised health information system at the three university teaching hospitals (totalling 1500 beds) in Abidjan, Côte d'Ivoire. In each hospital the system was managed by a team from the administrative department, without a hospital doctor or trained epidemiologist. Before the field test, in five voluntary clinical departments in each hospital, administrative staff underwent intensive training for three weeks. Project presentation workshops with clinicians and nurses were organised in all hospitals, and a ministry of health supervisory team (epidemiologists) was responsible for technical implementation and follow up. After six months the assessment showed a major failure in implementing the system for three main reasons: * Heavy administrative workload generated by management's inadequate medical and epidemiological education * Limited involvement of medical teams, possibly because of the responsibilities attributed to the administrative departments * Difficulty perceived among practitioners of implementing a health information......

E-Voting System of Panpacific University North Philippines

...The College of Computer Studies of the Panpacific University North Philippines is conducting elections for the Computer Wizard Society (CWS) officers every year. Paper-based voting system is currently used in electing officers for the CWS elections, which is laborious, time consuming and is unsecured in terms of the accuracy of the election results. The effectiveness of e-voting system compared to the manual voting before, the CWS advisers will encode the names of the candidates with a circle before it, which will be shaded by the voters in a piece of small paper. These papers will be the voting paraphernalia that will be distributed in each classroom of the CCS students by the CCS faculty members. After the election, all the distributed paper ballots will be collected by the CCS faculty members and they will tally the number of votes gained by the candidates through manual counting and after that, the results will be given to the CWS Adviser who will then announce the newly elected officers. In order to resolve these situations, the technology of electronic voting (e-voting) comes into existence. By using information technology, e-voting system can cast and count votes with higher convenience and efficiency, even make the electoral procedures simple and reduce the mistake rate of ballot examination. The studies show that there are lots of advantages through the use of e-voting system. Some of its advantages are; it is faster and convenient to use, e-voting has higher......

Will it affect the contents of a certain information when it comes to originality and reliability? What will happen if plagiarism is applied in the Philippine Judicial and Legal System?

...Administrative Ethics Jennifer Coetzee 11/26/12 HCS/335 Susan Morgan Administrative Ethics: There are so many issues in today’s society of administration in the health field. As technology progresses more and more issues continue to arise. Among the many issues in current administrative ethics the healthcare field faces today the most common issue that I found in my research is the issue of confidentiality and privacy of the patients. Even more today than there has been before keeping patients records private has become more and more difficult. There are different levels of information that can be affected. According to nursingworld.org the administrator protects information that is private, secret or privileged. This means that not all information is medical information about the patient but also information about the payroll or other contact information about the patient and the staff. This also would include information the patient does want their doctor to know about them which would be more privileged information and things they do not want their doctors to share with others. One of the main issues with keeping such information confidential according to the article Administrative Ethics and Confidentiality/Privacy Issues on nursingworld.org is that most often younger people are working in offices that do not respect or have accurate knowledge of the privacy laws such as HIPPA. Hippa is a government list of regulation and rules to abide by in any medical......

Acceptability of a Low-Cost Medical Diagnostic Test System in Philippine Barangay Health Centers

...Recoletos de Bacolod Graduate PhD-Business Management University of Negros Occidental-Recoletos Bacolod City Business Research NAME: Evans B. Sansolis Acceptability of a Low-Cost Medical Diagnostic Test System in Philippine Barangay Health Centers CHAPTER I INTRODUCTION Project Context The Philippines is a third world country wherein a large number of its citizens living in urban and rural areas subsist below the poverty line. Millions of people are unemployed, and countless citizens earn an income below Php 5,000 a month. In fact, a lot of families in the country have been struggling to survive. According to the book, "Poverty in the Philippines" published by Asian Development Bank, "Economic growth has gone through boom and bust cycles, and recent episodes of moderate economic expansion have had limited impact on the poor. Great inequality across income brackets, regions, and sectors, as well as unmanaged population growth is considered some of the key factors constraining poverty reduction efforts.” This idea tells us that a lot of families in the country are suffering from extreme poverty which eventually affects their health and medical needs. Thus, our government is lacking in an adequate, systematic, elaborate collection and storage of medical data for our underprivileged countrymen. In light of this, open-source hardware that is open for modification can easily be converted to form a new machine, gadget, or instrument, wherein its hardware......

...Philippines Ask any Filipino how many islands there are in the Philippines and you will invariably receive the answer in the form of another question, “High tide or low tide? The most common figure given is 7,107 during low tide and 7,100 during high tide, but nobody knows where these numbers come from. The official figure from the Department of Tourism is 7,107 islands. Known as the “Pearl of the Orient Sea” and the “Green Necklace of the Pacific” for the natural beauty of its string of islands sprawled like a necklace of gems against the backdrop of the vast blue Pacific Ocean, the Philippines was named Islas Filipinas (Philippine Islands) by Ruy Lopez de Villalobos when he claimed the group of islands for Spain in 1543. The name is in honor of Prince Phillip, who would later become Prince Philip II of Spain. The Republic of the Philippines (Fig.1) is an archipelago of more than 7,000 islands located southeast of mainland Asia and positioned along the Ring of Fire on the southwestern edge of the Pacific Ocean. Different bodies of water surround the country - South China Sea to the west, Sulu Sea to the Southwest, Celebes Sea to the south, and the Philippine Sea and Pacific Ocean to the east. The country is separated from Taiwan on the north by the Luzon Strait and from Malaysia on the southwest, by the Balabac Strait., The country’s overall land area is slightly larger than the size of Arizona.
