Siloam Sriwijaya automates Pediatric Vaccination reminders with A.I. Powered WhatsApp


To enhance patient experience and the quality of care, Siloam Sriwijaya Hospital has partnered Bot MD to introduce an A.I. powered platform that automates vaccination reminders using WhatsApp.

Parents with newborns delivered at Siloam Sriwijaya will receive automated WhatsApp reminders from the Hospital, without having to download another app. These reminders will inform parents of their child's required vaccination schedule from birth until they are 18 years old.

The reminders for the 15 vaccinations will be sent based on the National Vaccination Schedule published by the Pediatric Society of Indonesia (Ikatan Dokter Anak Indonesia, IDAI). After receiving each WhatsApp reminder, parents can easily schedule the next vaccination appointment through tapping a link sent to them in chat.

Nurses are able to enroll parents using a simple enrollment form and customize the child's vaccination reminder schedule if required. Once enrolled, parents will immediately receive a message through the Siloam Sriwijaya WhatsApp Business account.

"84% of patients we enrolled onto Bot MD have returned to Siloam for their next vaccination. Automated WhatsApp reminders are very effective because the parent is notified instantly without having to download another application. Our nurses love the Bot MD system also because it is simple and easy to use, and they no longer have to call patients manually.”

Dr Bona Fernando
CEO, Siloam Sriwijaya

"Our partnership with Siloam Sriwijaya has demonstrated the tremendous potential of A.I. to help automate patient reminders and engagement through WhatsApp. There are over 13,000 babies born in Indonesia every year. We are excited to have an opportunity to use technology to help improve the operational efficiency and quality of care for newborn babies across the country."
