The digitalization of health services could help Type C hospitals in Indonesia save up Rp2 billion yearly, Setiaji, Chief of the Digital Transformation Office of the Ministry of Health stated at a webinar held by Katadata and Dell Indonesia in Jakarta on “Building the Healthcare of the Future” (19/1/2023). Furthermore, he said, digitalization can improve the delivery of healthcare services such as by reducing patient registration waiting times, or enabling the patients access treatment anywhere. With these digital solutions, hospitals can reduce administrative costs, improve patient healthcare outcome, and increase efficiency by streamlining and automating various processes, such as appointment scheduling, electronic medical record, and inventory management. In addition, digitalization can also help with remote consultations, which can minimize the travel and accommodation costs for both the patients and the doctors.

  • Increased efficiency: Digitalization can automate many administrative tasks, such as appointment scheduling and medical billing, thus saving time and reducing errors.
  • Reduced costs: Digitalization can help reduce costs associated with paper records, mailing, and travel, as well as lowering the risk of medical errors which can be expensive.
  • Better communication: Digitalization can improve communication between healthcare providers, enabling them share patients’ information more easily and collaborate more effectively.

  • Personalized medicine: Digitalization can enable personalized medicine by using big data and machine learning techniques to analyze patients’ data and provide tailored treatment.
  • Population health management: Digitalization can enable tracking and monitoring of population health and identify trends and patterns that can guide making public health policy decisions.
