Increasing Telemedicine Usage: There has been an increase in the usage of digital healthcare and this will become the new norm in the country post-COVID-19. In March 2019, the Local healthcare app, Alodokter, recorded more than 30 million active users (1.5X higher than pre-COVID-19 traffic). Indonesia’s biggest telemedicine app, Halodoc, as well as ride-haling giant, GoJek, partnered with the Ministry of Health to provide COVID-19 diagnostics in remote areas.
Pharmacy is Becoming One Stop Solution for Healthcare: Pharmacies have focused increasingly on services such as home delivery, prescription records, and medicine consumption reminder services, special diabetic care section, self-diagnostic equipment, natural foods, baby care products, skincare, toiletries, among other things to become a one-stop solution for all pharmacy needs of the customer.
Challenges in Healthcare Industry: Providing healthcare facilities to its citizens that are spread around 17,000 islands is a huge challenge for the Indonesian government. Healthcare facilities in Indonesia are unevenly distributed; despite the fact, only 35% of its island is inhabited. The majority of primary healthcare facilities are located in Java, the most packed island. Puskesmas (government-run clinics) are the main (and only in some cases) point of contact for healthcare services in many underdeveloped rural areas.

Companies are expected to invest in online sales channels & partnerships to ensure sales revenue.
