Abstract

Objective: To investigate the circumstances of the obstetric referral case at the emergency department of the Dr.Cipto Mangunkusumo Hospital as well as the accuracy of the referral implementation.

Method: We used cross-sectional study. Medical records of obstetric patients at Emergency department in RSCM in January 2013-July 2014 were obtained, then information about patients and their characteristic were collected. The accuracy of referral cases is based on emergency obstetric criteria by BPJS rules.

Results: Primary Health Care became the leading referrer. Inappropriate diagnostic referral cases amounted to 21.2%when JKN first began to be implemented in 2014. Cases with improper diagnoses were more referred when JKN was implemented which amounted to 16.8% and non-emergency referral cases of 6.9% in 2014.

Conclusion: Referral implementation has not been efficient and effective, the number of obstetric referral cases to emergency department of RSCM that can actually be handled in the secondary advanced health services after the application of JKN is still high. Monitoring and evaluation is needed by the Local Health Office to improve the quality of the referral system that applied in the newly JKN era.
