Jakarta, 20th November 2020 – Indonesian linen supply titans, PT. Indo Dwi Sentosa (PT. IDS) signs a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with OMNI Hospitals Group for the integration of a Linen Management System (LMS) backed by MDT Innovations Sdn Bhd (MDTi), a deep tech company involved in IoT, Digital ID, and Security Systems. MDTi’s Linen Management System (LMS) will be integrated into PT. IDS’ laundry services for linen tracking to increase visibility and curb the spread of COVID-19 at OMNI Hospitals.

The signing between Executive Director of PT. IDS, Madam Devira Ros and CEO of OMNI Hospitals Group, Dr Maria Theresia Yulita, MARS, MSM was witnessed by the CEO of MDTi, Mr. Liew Choon Lian, who joined the event virtually. The system enables the assessment of direct linen contact with officers, nurses and employees as it automatically monitors and records activities by reading the RFID tag on the linen, allowing the linen to be identified, counted and tracked. It also facilitates sorting and validates pick-up and delivery at the customer’s location. The RFID technology used by PT. IDS is the result of a joint development with MDTi Malaysia.
Madam Devira Ros and Dr Maria Theresia Yulita, MARS, MSM shake hands after the signing.
“OMNI Hospitals always prioritizes the safety and security of patients and medical personnel through innovations. By using the RFID system, we can indirectly monitor the spread of disease and improve OMNI Hospitals’ services for patients to have a good experience and speed up their recovery process,” says Dr Maria Theresia Yulita, MARS, MSM, MH.
Executive Director of PT. IDS, Devira Ros says she is happy with the collaboration. “The management of laundry and linen in hospitals using this system is relatively inexpensive as the technology can help break the chain of spreading the infection,” she states.
“We are very excited about the new arrangement with both parties. Aside from leveraging on each other’s prowess to offer improved solutions, this strategic partnership will further strengthen MDTi’s presence in Indonesia,” says Liew Choon Lian, Chief Executive Officer at MDTi Malaysia.
