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.
