Alleged Data Leak, Hospital Reveals Medical Data Reported to the Ministry of Health

Suara.com – The alleged leak of medical data being traded on the internet caused a stir. It is reported that around 720 GB of medical data for Indonesian patients can be obtained by paying a certain amount of money.

The hospital said that there is indeed medical data that is reported to the Ministry of Health (Kemenkes) every year. The report has been regulated in regulations, and all hospitals in the country must comply. At least once a month at least the hospital is required to report certain data to the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Indonesia.

“So by regulation, every hospital must have or report the data required by the Ministry of Health. It is usually reported every month, both diagnoses, mortality rates and so on,” said Chief Operating Officer of Eka Hospital drg. Rina Setiawati when met by Suara.com in BSD City, Friday (7/1/2022).

Drg. Rina said, although not detailed diagnosis data for each patient. The type of data that must be reported is in the form of general data, such as bed availability (BOR) to diagnosis of the most diseases found in hospitals.

“Such as starting from the BOR (bed occupancy rate), hospital occupancy rate, mortality rate, morbidity, then the highest number of diagnoses,” said drg. Rina.

In addition, responding to the alleged leak of Indonesian patient medical data. As a hospital with excellent services in BSD Tangerang, Pekanbaru, Cibubur, and Bekasi, drg. Rina said that it is very important for people to choose a hospital that can protect their patient data.

“Yes, basically, choose a hospital that can explain well how they protect data from patients’ medical records, and ensure that the data is not spilled out,” explained drg. Rina.

He added, it is very risky if the patient document archive system is still in the form of paper (hardcopy) and has not been converted to digital, because it can be photographed, copied or transferred to other media.

“But for those who are non-paper, actually there is still a possibility, for data to be stolen. But back again to how the hospital intends and protects data from the confidentiality of its patients,” he explained.
