Create better healthcare in Indonesia

Requested by

PT. Karisma Aradi Healthcare (KAHC)

Who are you trying to help? What issue are you trying to address?

Indonesia, a country with the fourth largest population in the world, has vast healthcare problems. The country has one of the highest maternal mortality rates in South East Asia, with an estimated 470 maternal deaths per 100,000 live births, compared with 9 deaths for every 100,000 live births in Singapore and 39 in Malaysia. World Health Organization (WHO) designated Indonesia a "high burden country” for tuberculosis. There are roughly 500,000 new cases of TB annually, 175,000 attributable deaths, and TB is the the second major killer of adults after cardiovascular disease. The HIV epidemic in Indonesia is one of the fastest growing in Asia. The latest U.N. report in 2012 mentions Indonesia as one of nine countries with at least a 25% increase in infection rates.

There is a need for Indonesia to restructure the healthcare system but healthcare is not our government’s priority. Indonesia’s planned healthcare expenditure for 2013 is only 1,9% of total government spending, far less than our neighbours. The Health Department still doesn’t have a programme, incentive, or even regulations in regard to electronic medical records (EMR), the most efficient way of keeping records related to health care.

We are currently building a small hospital in Cimareme, West Bandung, Indonesia, and we want to use a healthcare information system (HIS) that integrates electronic medical records (EMR) as part of this. However there is no EMR system suitable for our needs available here.

What is your project and how will it help?

Our project aims to create a secure, reliable Healthcare Information System (HIS) with an integrated Electronic Medical Record (EMR) System with International Certification from the Commission for Health Information Techology (CCHIT) or Health Level Seven (HL-7). The system database will be hosted on an affordable server that will be accessible though mobile device applications on an affordable Android Tablet / Workstation.

We want to make this system available to all Indonesian hospitals, private clinics, and community health centres at an affordable subscription.

EMR adoption in Indonesia would mean a better healthcare system that will help millions of people in Indonesia have access to a better, safer healthcare.

Our main organization, PT. Karisma Aradi Healthcare, has already borrowed a large sum of money to build our hospital. At best we can only allocate 20.000$ to the planned EMR system development. Since our goal has a non-profit aspect, we plan to seek out grants to fund our project. If we can secure a grant, we will form a non-profit entity called PT. Wirawijaya Informatika Nasional (WIN) that will develop and market the HIS & EMR system.

How can other people partner with you on your project?

We need funding in the form of grants or partnerships to support our project.

Please detail the resources that you need.

We have estimated that to develop the programme we need at least 200,000$ for the first year. In the second year, we’ll need additional funding for marketing, technical support, PR, further investment to buy new vehicles, etc. We estimate that if we want to provide the first annual subscription free – which means better distribution of EMR and a better, wider healthcare impact – at the very least we would need 1.000.000$ to cover investment and operating costs until the second year before we reach sustainability and profitability.

We are thus looking for a grant of 200.000$, however a smaller amount would also help us to get going. If you or your Foundation can provide us with a grant we will add you or your foundation name as one of the contributors that helped us to make the system possible in every application we provide to the healthcare provider. Your name or your Foundation’s name will also be available amongst other supporters in a website we plan to create, that aims to provide support and educational material about Electronic Medical Records.

A 1.000.000$ grant means that we don’t have to secure further funding from any other organization, therefore we will name you or your Foundation as the sole contributor to our project that can be seen in the apps and on the website. As partner to our project, however small the contribution is, we will provide a copy of our financials every month.
