Smart Tele-Health System to Enhance Healthcare Service in Indonesia

Indonesia, as a very vast archipelago in South East Asia, still has disparities in several sectors between the major islands. One of the major disparities is in the healthcare sector. This is caused by the uneven spread of healthcare specialists, which are more concentrated in the major islands of Indonesia such as Java and Sumatera. This is a major issue, considering that the country has one of the highest fetal and mother mortality rates in Asia which is caused by the high mortality rate is the lack of fetal growth monitoring during pregnancies. In addition, the uneven specialist distribution in Indonesia is also a concerning issue for the treatment of diseases that requires immediate action, such as cardiovascular disease. As a matter of fact, roughly 44% of Cardiologists in Indonesia are based in Jakarta. In order to solve this issue, we have developed a Smart Telehealth System that could remotely provide healthcare services from major cities to the rural areas of Indonesia. Currently, we have developed two Telehealth Systems. The first system is the Tele-USG system, which is an Android-based system that could be used for patient-doctor consultation, monitoring the fetal progress, and automatically calculates the fetal biometrics from a USG image. The second system is the Tele-ECG system, which could classify ECG data automatically for early detection. Overtime, the data that were transmitted and store will be very large in size. We also predict that the variety, velocity if the data will be very high. Therefore, we need a new method and technology to handle these large data. To handle the big data issues, we deployed the system in the Hadoop, which is one of the most popular Big Data platforms. For the large transmission issue, we have devised a new method using 2D SPIHT Compression to create a 24 lossless compression ratio. In terms of healthcare technology, we also consider equipping our system with the security system. We develop encryption along with the compression scheme. For the automatic classification and clustering of the ECG data, we have also implemented it on the Big Data platform. This platform could handle 60 different requests at the same time, which shows that the system is capable to handle scalability issues in future implementations.
