An Overview of e-Health in Indonesia: Past and Present Applications
- Dwi Cahya Astriya Nugraha
In this paper, we describe the eleven month encouraging clinical implementation experience of our e-prescription system in a community health center and further development activities of a mobile e-health system for mother and childcare. The e-prescription system has been developed for supporting the patient and medicine data recording, retrieving and reporting systems, as well as for minimizing the possible medication errors through improving the prescribing process. Several months of clinical experience have been used to enhance further development activities in our m-health system dedicated for supporting mother and childcare (especially the safe motherhood program). The m-health system consists of an SMS (short messaging system) manager module which is responsible for sending short messages with four different operating modes.
