Jakarta (ANTARA) - PT Pertamedika IHC, as a holding company for state-owned hospitals, along with Google Cloud launched an Integrated Health Service System called One Solution System (OSS) for the entire hospital network comprising 73 state-owned hospitals.

"The Pertamedika IHC OSS system’s ability to synchronize various data sources, earlier scattered, will help doctors make better medical decisions and will enable us to confidently advance our digital innovation strategy in terms of data compliance and security," President Director of Pertamedika IHC Fathema Djan Rachmat noted in a statement received in Jakarta, Tuesday.

Rachmat pointed out that for decades, healthcare data had been stored and scattered across various locations despite interoperability of health data being crucial for offering better quality of care, particularly in the current scenario when virtual care is increasingly in demand.

"Working closely with Google, we also had the opportunity to explore how their smart data analytics, artificial intelligence solutions, and also Google Maps and YouTube can help us advance the operations and services offered to patients," she remarked.

The OSS system, hosted on Google Cloud, is the main pillar of Pertamedika IHC's digital transformation and has made the largest hospital network in Indonesia at the forefront of healthcare technology innovation to improve patient experience and advance medical research.

This implementation is wholly supported by Google Cloud Indonesia by offering technology assistance through EBconnect.

Moreover, digitizing patient data and treatment outcomes through the OSS system will provide additional benefits in advancing the efforts of IHC's Pertamedika Digital Research Center.

With the increasing use of IoT devices and digital health applications, Pertamedika IHC will explore how Google Cloud's artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) solutions can accelerate the rate of discovery by running algorithms on disguised patient data to uncover new treatment methods and protocols for patient care.

“We are proud to be Pertamedika IHC's digital transformation partner and to be able to help this forward-looking hospital organization to restructure healthcare services along the way. In this way, we can also help improve the healthcare experience for Indonesians," Country Director of Google Cloud in Indonesia, Megawaty Khie affirmed.
