InterSystems IRIS for Health eases SATUSEHAT compliance
Mon, 18th Sep 2023

InterSystems, a creative data technology provider, has announced an extension to Indonesia's InterSystems IRIS for Health data platform.

The extension eases SATUSEHAT compliance for healthcare providers and provides them with a repository of clean, normalised data for advanced analytics to deliver a return on investment.

Indonesia's Health Ministry launched the SATUSEHAT platform in 2022 to deliver on the country's health technology strategy. 

As a national integrated health data platform, SATUSEHAT removes the burden of patients taking their records to appointments, reducing the potential for duplicate testing and other wasted efforts. 

SATUSEHAT aims to improve Indonesia's population health and genomics capabilities while providing profound insights through large-scale data analytics to streamline service delivery. 

InterSystems IRIS for Health meets the Indonesian government's interoperability and data quality requirements for SATUSEHAT, which securely captures standardised patient data from healthcare providers using the HL7 FHIR health data sharing standard. 

InterSystems IRIS for Health captures, maps, transforms, and routes cleansed health data to SATUSEHAT, then validates the delivery for peace of mind. It does the heavy lifting to simplify and streamline a potentially resource-intensive and complex process. It can apply the correct medical terminology, for example, SNOMED CT, so health data is clean and ready to be shared and used. 

In addition to enabling SATUSEHAT compliance, InterSystems IRIS for Health creates a repository of clean, normalised FHIR data so healthcare providers can perform advanced analytics. 

Healthcare providers can connect the repository to medical devices, smart watches, mobile apps, insurance systems, and other data sources via FHIR. Using the preferred data analytics solutions, actionable insights can be gained to improve patient care, experience, and engagement and streamline their operations.

Luciano Brustia, Regional Managing Director, Asia Pacific at InterSystems, says: "Instead of seeing digital healthcare reform as a compliance issue, we see it as an opportunity for progressive healthcare organisations to unlock the power of their data."

"As providers invest in connecting to SATUSEHAT and sharing clean, standardised data, we believe it's important to generate a return on investment for healthcare providers and their patients as well."

InterSystems is now recruiting implementation partners in Indonesia to assist healthcare providers. While InterSystems IRIS for Health is pre-configured for SATUSEHAT, every provider has a unique information systems environment and different ways of representing health data. 

Implementation partners can help providers configure InterSystems IRIS for Health to map, transform, and cleanse data from their environments for routing to SATUSEHAT and storing in the FHIR repository. 

Moreover, InterSystems sponsors the FHIR Workshop at the HIMSS23 APAC Health Conference & Exhibition in Jakarta. The company is also an exhibitor at HIMSS23 and will demonstrate InterSystems IRIS for Health and meet with prospective customers and implementation partners.

InterSystems is best known in Asia for the InterSystems TrakCare electronic medical record (EMR) system, which has helped to protect patient safety and improve patient experience at leading private hospitals for decades. 

Over the same period, the company has invested in advanced interoperability and data standardisation technologies that underpin large-scale healthcare transformations worldwide.
