Philippine Health Research Registry

 

The Philippine Health Research Registry (PHRR), managed by the Philippine Council for Health Research and Development, is a tool for good governance to promote transparency and accountability in health research. PHRR is a publicly accessible database on newly approved health researches. It includes clinical trials and non-clinical studies conducted in the Philippines. The registry is compliant with the World Health Organization (WHO) standard for clinical trials registry. 

 

 

Objectives of the Registry

 

  • To track ongoing and newly-approved research; on what, by whom
  • To avoid duplication of research
  • To know who funds what kind of research

HERDIN Plus is a health research information management system and collaboration platform for Higher Education and Research and Development Institutions to collect, organize, and disseminate research information.


Our story

The Philippine Health Research Registry: A Journey from Vision to Reality
 
With the vision to improve the flow of health-related information in the country, the Philippine Council for Health Research and Development (DOST-PCHRD), in partnership with the Department of Health and University of the Philippines Manila, established the Health Research and Development Information Network (HERDIN) in 1986.


In 2013, the Republic Act 10532 institutionalized the Philippine National Health Research System (PNHRS) and officially recognized HERDIN as the National Health Research Repository. It was stated in the law that all health researches shall be registered in the Philippine Health Research Registry (PHRR) and when published, to the national repository (HERDIN).


Today, the HERDIN Plus continues to evolve as a one stop health research information management platform, increasing access to health research information systems for better health and better quality of life for Filipinos.

Our Goals

  • To assist higher education and research institutions organize and manage their health research/institutional information
  • To improve access to [health and health related] research information
  • To generate a comprehensive report on [health and health related] research information from PNHRS implementing institutions, consortia member institutions, research-generating institutions

The Registry


The Philippine Health Research Registry (PHRR) http://registry.healthresearch.ph, is a publicly-available database of newly-approved health researches from 2012 onwards. It is different from HERDIN, another PCHRD-developed database, as HERDIN is a compilation of all completed researches.


Account Application Process


Organizations and researchers must first request for an account by writing a letter addressed to Dr. Jaime C. Montoya, Executive Director, PCHRD. The letter should be signed either by the head of office or the Director for Research of the Institution. The letter should specify the following:


1.    name of person who will be authorized to input to the database;
2.    email address; and
3.   title/s of approved research projects and the Implementing Agency or scanned letter of approval to conduct clinical trial issued by FDA/ERB.

PCHRD will send a temporary password to the nominated email address, which will also be used as the user name. Once, logged-in, the account holder has the option to change his/her password.

If an account holder forgets his/her password, click on the “Forgot your password/username?” link on the Account page at registry.healthresearch.ph and we will email instructions on how to regain access to your account.

Uploading to the Registry



To upload research information to the registry, log in using your email address as user name and the password assigned to you (or your nominated password, if you have changed the temporary password in the account page). Once logged-in, click on “My Researches” to add new research studies.

Once the required entries are completed, click on the “Register” button on the “My Researches” page, and your entry will be automatically emailed to the Registry Officer for checking. You will be notified if your uploaded researches are already registered. Once, registered, research studies cannot be deleted. It can, however, be edited, for updating purposes.

It is important that research topics be uploaded to the registry only once. Hence, institutions are encouraged to have an internal policy on whether each researcher will upload his/her own study or allow the Research Unit of the Institution to upload all the researches of the Institution.

For clinical trials, sponsors and investigators should agree on who should take the responsibility to register the trials, especially for multi-site and multi-sponsor trials. It is recommended that whoever is responsible in securing registration of the trial with FDA be the one to upload the trial in PHRR.
