Health Information Systems (HIS) are vital in making or developing the policies of health programs in the Philippines. The HIS is broadly defined as a system that integrates data collection, processing, reporting, and use of the information necessary for improving health service effectiveness and efficiency through better management at all levels of health services. This study is conducted to visualize the current situation of the health information system users in public health facilities in the Province of Bataan. It endeavors to answer on how the health facilities in the Province are described based on their report platform, the number of personnel, trained and untrained per facility, and the needs of the facilities when it comes to the training of the encoders. The researchers used the descriptive method specifically the Dashboarding, Analysis, and Reporting or DAR method for this study. This study focused on the data gathered from the Health Information Systems Assessment Tool. The assessment was conducted with 24 different health facilities in the Province of Bataan. The study revealed that 14 out of 24 (58%) of the Rural Health Units (RHUs) in the Province of Bataan used paper-based reporting while 10 out of 24 (42%) of the RHUs used a health information system. Twenty one out of 48 encoders (44%) are untrained while 27 out of 48 (56%) are trained. Capability training in each health information system used is proposed. In conclusion, the Province of Bataan is supporting the implementation of the use of health information systems (HIS) by designating encoders for every public health facility.
