~NEXT Stage ER is driving the digitalization of emergency room operations in Indonesia~
TXP Medical Co. Ltd.(hereinafter "TXP Medical"), which provides the emergency medical data platform NEXT Stage ER, has been selected by the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare for the "Project for Strengthening the Emergency Department Operation System in Indonesia Using NEXT Stage ER, a Data Management System Specializing in Emergency Department Treatment", a provider of emergency room care in Indonesia, has been selected by the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare to participate in the FY2022 Project for the Promotion of International Development of Medical Technology, which is led by the National Center for Global Health and Medical Research (contract period: from June 2022 to February 2023).
This adopted project aims to improve the quality of emergency outpatient care operations at two hospitals on the island of Java, the University Hospital of Indonesia, and Muhammadiyah Lamongan Hospital, by introducing NSER, an emergency medical data platform already in place in Japan, customized for local use.
The project to promote the international deployment of medical technology, for which TXP Medical was selected, aims to share knowledge and experience of Japan's medical system, and to promote the international deployment of Japanese medical products and technologies that are of high quality and meet the needs of partner countries. The purpose is also to contribute to the improvement of public health and medical standards in the partner country, to enhance the trust of Japan in the international community, and to bring about a virtuous circle for both Japan and the partner country.
In Indonesia, the rate of Hospital Information System implementation in all hospitals is estimated to be as low as 50% or less (estimate), and even lower in emergency departments. The use of paper medical records is still common, and the medical staff is still burdened with the task of filling in the documents in their medical work. In addition, the operation of paper medical records makes it difficult to collect high-quality data related to emergency medical care at each hospital, and the data on emergency medical care necessary for visualizing social problems and making policy decisions are not being collected even at the national level.
In the Indonesian medical community, where the increase in medical staff is said to be outpacing the growth in population and patient numbers, there is an urgent need to supplement the shortage of manpower and improve data collection systems by promoting the digitalization of the medical system.
Under these circumstances, TXP Medical will promote the digitalization of emergency room operations using NEXT Stage ER to solve issues related to manpower shortages and data collection systems.
Rachmad A. Pua Geno, Vice President of Muhammadiyah Lamongan Hospital, one of the pilot sites of the selected project, said, "We hope that the collaboration between Muhammadiyah Lamongan Hospital and TXP Medical will result in a new information system in the emergency department and a stronger emergency care system for the local population."
