Medic One Services: The Four Medical Service Pillars
Medic One consists of four different service areas:
Emergency & Concierge (Emergency)
To provide assistance in situations of medical emergency, accidents or need
To provide both public and medical professionals the skills that save lives
To prepare industries to be able to prevent and to response immediately to medical emergencies and diseases
Carepoint is Medic One’s chain of convenient office clinic that has begun to open up in strategically selected Jakarta office buildings. A clinic close to where your employees work can provide conveniently accessible, time-saving, and money-saving health care services without your employees ever having to travel far from their workplace. Carepoint moves the treatment of common illnesses closer to the patients while at the same time providing a quick emergency point they can all run to should the need arise
Furthermore, Medic One provides a number of other services for the public sector such as transport and rehabilitation of patients from the public hospital sector as well as training of firefighters, police and public hospital emergency department staff.
Can you afford to get sick living in Indonesia?
The Nation spends less than 2% of its GDP on the healthcare sector. WHO-recommended level is 5%. 30 percent of the 3,000 community health centers spread across the country do not have a doctor in attendance. And there’s a long-standing ban on foreign doctors practicing in local hospitals.
Private healthcare services are expensive mainly because they are profit-driven centers. Specialists’ bills outpace the general inflation rate - averages about 20% per year. Most of them see more than a hundred patients/day jeopardizing diagnosis quality. They practice at more than three locations making medical records to be scattered across various medical centers.
According to WHO, heart diseases strikes at younger age and the rate has tripled over last 20 years. In a cardiac arrest, brain death starts from 4 minutes. Yet the Nation doesn’t have a reliable emergency number and virtually no one knows first aid. Most hospital ambulances are “load and go” and there is no accredited Paramedical program. Chances of victims ever make it to a hospital alive in Indonesia: Less than 1%.
For that reason more than 1,000, 000 Indonesians go to Singapore for medical care. 100,000 are hospitalized and spend more than US$ 1.2 Billion. When they return home – still, no one is to trust to continue care.
