With so many deployments of Software as a Service (SaaS) in different verticals nowadays, healthcare is no exception. With the constant communications among so many departments within a healthcare organization, and the increasing costs of healthcare overall, it is no wonder SaaS is becoming more and more popular in this industry.

Here are some advantages of using SaaS in a healthcare setting:

Adverse drug reactions are costing hundreds of thousands of lives every year, and billions of dollars to hospitals. It can happen when the sufferer is not aware of her own allergy, it can also happen because of human errors, it can also happen because of the misinformation that happens when prescribing medicines to patients. For patients, there are free drug interaction checkers online, but they are not necessarily accurate nor comprehensive, and not to mention troublesome. For doctors and providers, there is an easier way to prevent adverse drug reactions. Through certified online database such as MIMS which is integrated with Medico, doctors will be notified of a patient’s allergies and when prescribing, they will be notified of any potentially wrong drug combinations. This automatic notifications is seamless and has helped doctors to prevent prescribing drugs that can be fatal to the patient.

The first character must be an alpha character, excluding “u.” The second and third characters are numeric and characters four through seven can be a combination of numeric and alpha characters. The first three characters categorize the injury and the fourth through sixth characters describe in greater detail the cause, anatomical location and severity of an injury…

Did you know that most cases that come to the emergency room are not emergency by nature? Maybe we have all been guilty in contributing to this as well. What’s the reason? Simple enough: lack of accessible healthcare. If you have a primary doctor that you can talk to, you will be going to her first before going to the ER. ER is a burden to the patients as it is more costly than going to the consultation room, ER is also a burden to the medical practitioners especially the nurses, as they are diverted from other departments to tend to the ER patients.

We need more accessible healthcare and more insurance coverage to reduce this ER systemic errors. Our mission at Medico is such, that one of our future product pipeline ensures better accessible healthcare to more Indonesians.
