INDONESIAN HEALTH EXCHANGE (IHE).
Drive Efficiency and Accuracy in your business by connecting to your trading partners in the healthcare industry with Indonesian Health Exchange - an efficient, cost-effective EDI solution.
What is the Indonesian Health Exchange?
Customers and trading partners are the lifeblood of most businesses. A secure method for exchanging trading documents and streamlining the supply chain creates cost efficiencies for both parties.
The Indonesian Health Exchange (IHE) provides healthcare suppliers and wholesalers with an efficient, cost-effective solution for conducting business transactions electronically with Indonesian hospitals and other healthcare groups. Incorporating a wide range of messaging standards for the health industry, including GS1 XML, the IHE ensures that documents traded between partners reach their destination quickly, reliably and accurately, regardless of the originating system.
The IHE has been established in partnership with The Agency for Assessment and Application of Technology (BPPT) a non-ministerial government agency who has the task of carrying out government responsibilities in the field of assessment and application of technology.
After a detailed assessment of technologies globally, BPPT determined to partner with PNORS Technology Group to provide this high priority solution for Indonesia. Other related agencies such as the Government Goods and Service Procurement Institution (LKPP) also support this initiative to establish a fully integrated trading platform adopting Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) to facilitate trading between buyers and suppliers.
