To celebrate its sixth anniversary, UGM Academic Hospital officiated two wards named as Bima and Parikesit as well as online registration system that will run operational from 12 March 2018.
Director of the Hospital, Prof. dr. Arif Faisal., Sp.Rad (K)., DHSM., said the online application would allow patients easy registration for medical check.
"Patients with android based applications will now be able to register themselves for an appointment with the doctor,” said Arif on Friday (2/3/2018) during the celebration of the anniversary.
By online registration, said Arif Faisal, online registration can be used for appointment on the same day or during the week, thus saving the patient queuing time. Conventional registration, however, is still in place.
Vice-Rector for Education, Teaching and Registration, Prof. Dr. Ir. Djagal Wiseso Marseno, M.Agr., appreciated the developments of the Hospital. He assessed that the UGM has made great progress, the structure and infrastructure getting bigger while the institution getting more professional.
Djagal hoped the UGM hospital would be like National Hospital University in Singapore or Taiwan. According to Djagal, by meeting several indicators would make it an ideal hospital. Djagal said there were four main prerequisites to be met, which are healthy organisation, good infrastructure, professional medics, and networking.
"If such parameters are met, they would certainly advance the UGM Academic Hospital,” he said.
Meanwhile, Prof. dr. Iwan Dwiprahasto, M.Med.Sc., Ph.D., said several aspects need to be done to enhance the role of the education hospital, including forming partnership with business and research universities to enhance training and research.
"Role enhancement can be done on information system that integrates between services and research, team based organisational enhancement, engaging clinician and professional medics for the more user friendly management of the hospital,” he said.
During the event, awards were also given to humanitarian workers, including Dr. Fita Wirastuti, M.Sc., Sp.A and Yunita Ika Linda Fitria, S.Kep., Ners, who volunteered during the emergency response related to measles outbreak in Agats, Papua.
