Mayapada Group's Deputy Chairman, Jonathan Tahir said, since the inception of Mayapada Healthcare, we were committed to becoming a leading health care provider and meeting the needs of quality health services in Indonesia.
Synergizing with GE Healthcare in this development is very important because we want to ensure Mayapada Healthcare provides international standard health services for our patients throughout Indonesia. Strategic support from GE Healthcare who is experienced in the field of global health services, we believe will contribute positively to the achievement of our vision, he told the media on Friday (08/24/2018).
President & CEO of GE Healthcare ASEAN, Korea and ANZ, Myra Eskes said in his speech, GE Healthcare is proud to be a strategic partner for Mayapada Healthcare in its efforts to provide the latest health care solutions and technologies in Indonesia. This cooperation agreement is part of the collaboration that has been established between GE Healthcare and Mayapada Healthcare. We have understood the vision of Mayapada Healthcare from the collaboration that has been established for 10 years. And I believe, this strategic collaboration will bring positive changes to health service standards in Indonesia by improving access, quality and affordability, he explained.
The Indonesian government is currently working on improving health services by ensuring that every citizen is protected by JKN-KIS and continues to increase the number and quality of facilities in the health sector. Currently JKN-KIS membership has exceeded 198.8 million people, which means nearly 80% of the total population. With this amount, the government welcomed the existence of a hospital that provides health services for JKN-KIS participants. This is also part of efforts to improve health service standards and significantly contribute to the progress of the overall health care system. (Kormen).
