The CEO of BPJS Kesehatan
Praise be to Allah SWT, God Almighty, for His abundance of grace and gifts so that the JKN BPJS Health Journal web portal can be completed properly just as BPJS Kesehatan celebrates its 53rd Anniversary. I give our highest appreciation to the entire team who have worked well together so that this web portal can finally be launched. JKN Program has become a strategic government program that has great benefits and positive impacts for the community, especially in terms of opening access to health services for the community.
In a fairly short period, the JKN program has grown rapidly with membership coverage that has reached more than 200 million. This large number of participants makes JKN Program the largest health insurance program in the world which is implemented through a single-payer institution approach.
With a large number of participants and the great benefits of this program for the community, issues related to the JKN Program have always been interesting things to research and discuss, both by experts, academics, health insurance observers, and various related parties. In addition, there are not many countries that have characteristics of implementing health insurance such as Indonesia, so research journals related to the implementation of the JKN Program are interesting and become material for sharing information as well as learning materials and as an input for us to be more optimal in implementing the JKN Program.
Therefore, BPJS Kesehatan launched the JKN Journal web portal as a means of sharing knowledge of the JKN Program through the publication of BPJS Kesehatan’s scientific journals, both nationally and internationally. The launch of the JKN Journal web portal is proof that BPJS Kesehatan is always open to research results, conceptual ideas, and academic studies related to the JKN Program.
The JKN Journal web portal is expected to become a repository for BPJS Kesehatan’s employees to store journals related to the JKN Program. Moreover, it is hoped that this web portal can improve the literacy of BPJS Kesehatan’s employees regarding the implementation of the JKN Program and foster a culture of reading and writing articles or scientific journals.
Finally, we hope that this web portal can become a source of data and information for various parties to be used as a basis for policymaking which will ultimately become input and improvement for the sustainability of the JKN program in the future.
