Indonesia's digital health ecosystem is rapidly growing, and this is providing new export opportunities for Australian businesses and new areas for partnerships and collaboration.
At an annual growth rate of 60 per cent, digital health revenues in Indonesia are expected to reach $973 million by 2023. Digital health is playing a key role in both the healthcare systems of Indonesia and Australia.
For Indonesia, the health sector is using technology and the benefits of growing internet connectivity to address complex challenges associated with delivering health services to 260 million people across an archipelago of 17,000 islands. A shortage of health professionals and constraints on physical infrastructure exacerbate the scale of this challenge.
