The Power of Maintenance

Ever wonder how the licensing and standardization actually are in the quality regulation, especially for the doctors? In this post, I'll briefly explain the matter including what standards are actually important to be listed down to.

      A physician is amongst the health personnel which refer any person who devoted themselves in the health sector and have knowledge and / or skills through education in the health sector, which to a certain type requires authority to carry out health services. (Peraturan Pemerintah RI No. 32 th 1996)


      1. Certification
      From educational institutions. It's just the way how things going on for me. I'm studying medicine in University of Gadjah Mada, and after 5 years here, I'll have my Medical Doctor certificate. Insya Allah:)

      2. Competency test
      MTKP i.e. the provincial health personnel board. This is important in such a way to ensure that doctors are not a health personnel just because of their tittle or certificate, but also because of their knowledge, skill, and ability to really perform as ones.

      3. Registration
      KKI i.e. Indonesian Medical Council. It's somewhat like letting ourselves to be officially being acknowledged in the field. Well.. WELCOME TO THE CLUB:)

      4. Practice permit
      Government at district level. The analogy is like having a driving silence to drive a car legally.

      5. Credential
      Under the hospital medical board. It's an attestation of qualification, competence, or authority issued to an individual by a third party with a relevant. It may include academic diploma, academic degrees, certifications, or identification documents.

      6. Clinical privilege
      Board of director:)

      Besides obtaining medical practice permit (from government), h, health personnel is responsible on other obligations which is especially to comply with professional standards.
      • Education standards: The physician is graduated from a medical a school.
      • Competency standards: Performing jobs and role as a physician based on appropriate guidelines.
      • Service standards: Able to provide the service that patients are entitled to receive.
      • Ethics standard: Performing role in good and suitable moral value. 

      My second point, SURVEILLANCE will be posted soon. Thank you very much..
