The Importance of EMR in Healthcare Sector

The healthcare landscape in Indonesia is undergoing a transformative shift towards digitization, driven by the government’s commitment to enhance the quality of healthcare services for its citizens.

Spearheading this transformation are various policies, and a pivotal one is the introduction of BPJS (Badan Penyelenggara Jaminan Sosial) in 2014—a social security organization aimed at providing more comprehensive healthcare coverage to the Indonesian population.

A crucial next step in this evolution is the implementation of Regulation Permenkes No. 24 of 2022, designed to realize the sixth pillar of Health Transformation. This regulation prioritizes health technology, primary service, hospital referral services, health resilience, health financing, and health human resources transformation.

Central to the health technology transformation is the digitization of medical records through an electronic patient medical record system across all healthcare providers, a process slated for completion by the end of 2023. This EMR platform is poised to grant citizens access to their medical records, necessitating hospitals, clinics, and healthcare providers to integrate an EMR/EHR platform within their facilities.

The advantages of EMR are manifold and impactful. Digitizing medical records enhances the accuracy and completeness of patient information, leading to improved diagnosis and treatment outcomes. It mitigates the risk of errors and duplications in patient records, contributing to heightened patient safety. Furthermore, EHR facilitates better communication among healthcare providers, fostering enhanced care coordination and improved patient outcomes.

Yet, the implementation of EMR is not without its challenges. While financially stable hospitals, especially those within hospital chains, may seamlessly integrate their EMR with SATUSEHAT (the Indonesian government’s integrated platform), numerous hospitals in Indonesia might encounter obstacles for various reasons.

To gauge hospital digitization, the Ministry of Health has introduced a Digital Maturity Index, evaluating hospitals in terms of governance, organization, and human resources’ plan in allocating resources to network or IT systems.

Addressing the need for compliance with Permenkes No. 24 of 2022, Ksatria Medical Systems (KMS) presents a solution for hospitals, clinics, and healthcare facilities.
