Kalinga Health Mandaluyong was named top performing facility in the National Capital Region for having one of the highest proportions of patients enrolled for treatment who were bacteriologically confirmed in Quarter 2 of 2021. This suggests a high quality of TB care, especially diagnostics, delivered in our facility.
Kalinga Health is a hub-and-spoke social enterprise wherein it acts as the “hub” where a network of private providers (“spokes”) refer patients through a variety of public-private mix (PPM) strategies. These patients would then be able to avail themselves of the services offered by Kalinga Health. Additionally, the Hub acts as an intermediary agency for case registration, reimbursement of public and private health insurance, and treatment support for referral partners in the private sector (Spokes).
The announcement was made in a virtual forum of the 2021 Regional Race to End TB Awards.
