Konsula, founded by Indonesia-based Shinta Nurfauzia, Johannes Ardiant, and Ronald Wijaya, who are recent graduates from the US universities of Harvard and Michigan- addresses the disparity in health care services provision in Indonesia.
Although there are currently more than 160,000 doctors in Indonesia, Indonesians still find it difficult to obtain healthcare services.
Based on Konsula’s research, such disparity can be mitigated by establishing an online doctors’ directory where users can search the best doctor who suits their conditions and book an appointment with the doctor.
This is supported by an online platform that enables doctors and clinics to manage their practice in a systematic way, for just a fraction of the cost that other service providers charge.
“Our Konsula smart search is designed to connect patients with the most suitable doctors, which is possible due to filters such as price, location, specialization, schedule, et cetera. It enables users to book appointments and submit reviews at their fingertips,” Shinta Nurfauzia, CEO of Konsula, said.
Konsula also offers online healthcare practice management software that provides doctors and clinics with appointment scheduler and client record services. The two are specifically developed for the Indonesian healthcare sector.
“By helping doctors to optimize their practice, we believe we can help more patients ” Shinta Nurfauzia noted.
“Indonesia healthcare is another big category that needs to be disrupted by a startup. Konsula’s solution is providing the discovery of health practitioners – this will help millions of Indonesians meet the right doctor. We are glad to be part of Shinta, Johannes and Ronald new venture” said Willson Cuaca, managing partner of East Ventures.
Konsula will be launched at the end of October 2015. Right now, more than 500 doctors have signed up for it.
