PT. Daya Medika Pratama (DMP) wants to develop innovative solutions based on openEHR with a vision of creating an environment where healthcare data is not only long-lived and computable but easily understood, facilitating seamless information exchange across the different healthcare landscapes. The company currently offers a comprehensive hospital information system (AFYA-HIS) that includes electronic health records (EHR), and they want to leverage the Better digital health platform and explore large-scale developments.
The aim of the partnership is to establish an open, interoperable ecosystem in the Indonesian market, ensuring that healthcare data is both persistent and easily accessible. Better, with its dedication to transforming healthcare organisations and simplifying the work of care teams, is uniquely positioned to offer its expertise. The Better digital health platform, based on the openEHR standard that assures clinical data persistence and offers a path from silos of data to longitudinal, patient-centred care for life, will serve as a foundation for the future data-driven health ecosystem.
Daya Medika Pratama will use the full spectrum of the Better platform, encompassing the clinical data repository, Better low-code Studio, and Better portal. This strategic adoption will enable PT. Daya Medika Pratama to achieve standard-based data persistence and empower the rapid development of new clinical use cases. Additionally, it will provide a seamless web-based portal framework with a unified, personalised application experience.
Petar Abadžić, International sales manager at Better, said: “We are thrilled to collaborate with PT. Daya Medika Pratama to elevate the healthcare standards in Indonesia. By leveraging our platform’s robust capabilities, including the clinical data repository and low-code tools, we aim to enhance DMP’s existing hospital information system by integrating comprehensive EHR functionalities. The openEHR foundation ensures that healthcare data is not only accessible but also aligns with global standards to provide a truly interoperable healthcare ecosystem in Indonesia. After Thailand and now Indonesia, we will look for more partners and opportunities in the region to expand our business and, together with them, change how care is delivered across Southeast Asia.”
Ricky Gunawan, Director of PT. Daya Medika Pratama (DMP), said: “The market always pushes you to be on the edge of technology, and we are looking to achieve this together with Better. The clinical domain is something we have not stepped in before, but with a robust platform, open data, and a set of tools for development, we believe this process will be much smoother. Joining the openEHR community and leveraging the community’s built models will only further enhance this journey. We believe openEHR is the future for Indonesia, and we are excited about the collaboration that will elevate healthcare standards and empower healthcare providers across the market.“
The collaboration between Better and DMP will work in the direction of advancing the HIS sector in the region by leveraging the power of the Better platform, aligning its efforts to comply with national regulations and requirements within the Indonesian healthcare landscape, ensuring adherence and effectiveness of healthcare solutions. And it will try to modernise the existing systems by utilising the open platform approach as a foundation for new development. This includes a strategic shift towards large hospitals and national use cases while enhancing the existing hospital information systems with new EHR functionalities.
