Indonesia, as a developing country's, going to create it's first Telemedicine Guideline under the role of Indonesia Government. The finalization of the draft will be printed before new year eve.
Mostly, the current draft still focusing on early adoption of telemedicine technology: teleradiology, and tele-electrocardiology. The focuses rose due to the boarder area of our country that lack of specialists (i.e.) in field of surgery, OG (Obstetrics and Gynecology), and in general, the knowledge of the local healthcare practitioners to dealt with new cases in real-time.
Equipments and tools section, become necessary element to be listed as the main source of the guideline, as whole area of our country (including from rurals) will look up for the minimum technlogy that can fit with their low-cost clinic and public health center budget, and possibility to overcome both geographical challenges and network issues.
Shall any suggestion about policy, experiences, and any reference to enhance the quality of the guideline (specifically equipment and tools policy in implmenting early adoption of telemedicine, teleradiology and tele-electrocardiology) in LMICs or developing countries, would be very appreciated.
