Today at the Fullerton Hotel, dignitaries from Batam, and the Indonesian Government met
with dClinic to sign, what is arguably, the largest Blockchain project for the South East Asian
region: a USD $140mil contract which will greatly influence the role Blockchain will play in
Healthcare, especially for providers and consumers. dClinic has engaged Deloitte & Touche
Financial Advisory Services Pte Ltd as its key advisor for this project.
BP Batam Hospital, BP Batam and dClinic have officially signed contracts to deliver a number
of projects in Batam, Indonesia. This will include the delivery of BMB (Batam Medical
Blockchain) leveraging dClinic’s PHB (Private Healthcare Blockchain) to be hosted at the
upgraded BP Batam Data Centre. As part of the above projects, dClinic and BP Batam will
also engage in a partnership to deliver dClinic’s program for Wellness and Vitality at a
number of retreats around Batam. The overall goal is to roll this technology across the
whole of Batam and eventually, Indonesia.
Batam is well placed to be the centre of excellence for Blockchain and in particular for
Medical Technology service advancements. This is very much in line with the Indonesian
government’s plan to create Medical and Digital Economic Zones in Batam.
Dr Sigit Riyarto ( Director of RSBP Batam ) proudly announced, “RSBP Batam has already
won a number of awards for its innovation. Working now with dClinic we aim to introduce
the BMB to Batam and then to the greater Indonesia. What we can achieve through better
communication with our patients will only assist the healthcare system and help bring
change to way we communicate and encourage our consumers”.
Dr Edi Pambudi (Deputy Assistant Ministry of Monetary and Balance of Payments) added,
“Indonesia is bold and mature enough to pursue its position as the leader of Blockchain
excellence in this region and to bring leadership and digital innovation to rest of the world.
This agreement between RSBP Batam and dClinic is another major step towards our plans to
open up Batam and Indonesia to co-investment projects in Blockchain”.
Edy Putra (Chairman of BP Batam) agrees, “BP Batam wants to develop new regulations to
enable BP Batam to develop a special Medical Economic Zone. These new regulations are
designed to create new innovative models of health service delivery especially for medical
tourism, and we see this contract between dClinic and RSBP Batam as certainly furthering
Deloitte & Touche Financial Advisory Services Pte Ltd is the key advisor for this project. Chris
de Lavigne, Executive Director at Deloitte & Touche Financial Advisory Services Pte Ltd, said,
“Exponential technologies such as the Internet of Things, blockchain and artificial
intelligence have the potential power to transform the healthcare sector. Around the world,
healthcare stakeholders are looking for innovative, cost-effective ways to deliver patient-centered,
technology-enabled “smart” healthcare, both inside and outside hospital walls. Communities can take advantage of such digital and exponential technologies on data to
make informed decisions.” See here
Deloitte & Touche Financial Advisory
Services Pte Ltd will also be assisting dClinic with corporate governance and investment
(including fund raising) strategies.
"JP Consulting is proud to provide Clinical Governance and Services Development Advisory
Services for the BMB Program", said Jeff Parker, Managing Director of JP Consulting (Aust)
“For too long, organisations and governments have pursued static Electronic Health Records
as their preferred solution to answer the complexities of their patient’s healthcare journeys.
There is more evidence being compiled daily that these are restricted and often don’t work.
The answer to healthcare worldwide is a dedicated Healthcare Blockchain. dClinic can
provide such a solution and in Batam, Indonesia, we will. Coupled with our own Vitality
Retreats, we will work with RSBP Batam to demonstrate the clear benefits of Blockchain for
Healthcare”, said Dr Richard Satur (CEO of dClinic).
As part of its project reporting commitments, dClinic and BP Batam will make regular
announcements in the media to update the Blockchain, Health and Wellness communities
about progress in this region. BP Batam and dClinic also invite other companies to explore
integration opportunities with BMB.
