Batam and dClinic partners to lead Healthcare Blockchain technology by bringing together a significant number of global partners to help deliver a blockchain solution for Batam citizens. The aim is to have this solution eventually cover entire Indonesia.
The primary partnership is between BP Batam, through BP Batam Hospital, and dClinic, who have engaged Deloitte South East Asia and JP Consulting to provide project management and clinical governance expertise. dClinic's Public Healthcare Blockchain ("PHB") will be a private healthcare blockchain leveraging data analytics tools supplied by world-class partnering companies. The PHB will be implemented at a secure data centre in Batam operated by BP Batam Authority and dClinic.
"Bringing these companies together shows how exciting blockchain can be for healthcare. We aim to show the rest of the world how blockchain can be leveraged to offer proactive and positive outcomes for consumers across Indonesia" said, Dr Richard Satur, CEO of dClinic.
The Indonesian government is following this project meticulously to eventually deploy a successful solution across Indonesia. The dClinic will be implementing its PHB with the central goal of proving its effectiveness for providing a secure, dependable and flexible Longitudinal Electronic Health Record ("LEHR") for patients and consumers
Once the PHB has proven its effectiveness in Batam, dClinic will partner with other governments and organisations to implement this blockchain solution in other regions around the world.
"Batam is excited about being a leader in healthcare. We believe dClinic's solution coupled with the expertise and facilities the BP Batam Authority and BP Batam Hospital brings to the project, offers Indonesia, an opportunity to advance the delivery of effective healthcare services for all Batam and eventually, Indonesian patients" said, Dr Sigit Riyarto M. Kes, Director of BP Batam Hospital.
"BP Batam Authority is proud to participate and promote this advance in healthcare, especially for Batam. The group which has been assembled to provide this solution indicates how prestigious Batam is seen as a location for technology advancement. We invite other governments to visit our region and to meet with this exceptional group of companies" said, Edy Putra Irawady, Chairman of Batam Indonesia Free Zone Authority.
dClinic, Batam Indonesia Free Zone Authority and BP Batam Hospital is open to provide regular project updates and invites 3rd party application providers to initiate discussions with them to integrate one’s respective solutions with this PHB.
