Homedika

Abstract

Homedika is a platform which allows patients to be treated at home with qualified and well experienced health workers. This high quality program aims to make a meaningful impact on the Indonesian society by extending the medical assistance from the richest to the poorest, and from the urban zones to the rural ones. We want also to change the behavior of health workers toward their patients, and incite them to work more on this essential relationship of trust that should exist between them. We aim thus Indonesian people to feel the difference, value it, and make a greater use of our unique healthcare services in a country still on the road to development.

We believe health care is a fundamental human right and thus nothing should be a barrier to its access. We would like our country to be as equipped and as safe as the other developed country as our neighbor countries or the ones far in the west. The quality of health services of a country is one of its most important indicator of its population well-being. With Homelike we aim to make a meaningful impact on Indonesia and thus reducing medical errors, improving the quality of health cares, and thus the comfort of its population are our priorities. With a total population of 250 million, improving Indonesia's well-being will definitely improve the world's one, and make Indonesia as the world a safer place for its inhabitants.

With the Homedika program, we are committed in improving the Indonesian healthcare services.To this end we are committed to: ➢ Provide high quality health cares: Patients will not have anymore feel scared to be heal by unqualified health workers, which will guarantee them to obtain the most accurate cares and increase their chance of recovery. ➢ Provide in-home medical services: Until now, Indonesian could be treated only at hospitals.

Receiving healthcare directly at home is something widespread in the world and seems to be anchored as a basic services in many people's mind. Nevertheless, in Indonesia in-home healthcare is a totally new way for people to be treated. Our project will thus definitely be a turning point in the Indonesia's healthcare system history. The biggest barrier we could thus encounter would be that people will be afraid to try something totally new. However, we believe our medical services to be the best the Indonesian people could benefit from in term of quality, access and reliability. Many, and not negligible, difficulties they have encountered to access to medical cares can now be solved with our program -unskilled health workers, time wasted, no emergency services reliable...-. Therefore we are confident that Indonesian people would be interested by our service for their greater good and at the end the one of Indonesia.
