ABSTRACT

Background: Academic Health Center (AHC) is a concept that combines education, research and health services functions. Muhammadiyah is a Muslim organization in Indonesia with a wide range of business sections, including health edu­cation and health care provision. The General Health Advisory Council (MPKU) is a policy maker and advisor for the hospital and primary health care faci­lities. This study aimed to analyze the role of MPKU within the AHC concept at Muhammadiyah Gamping Hospital, Yogyakarta.

Subjects and Method: This was a qualitative study carried out at Muham­ma­diyah Gamping Hospital and Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences Uni­ver­si­tas Muhammadiyah Yogyakarta (FKIK UMY), from May to June 2018. A sample of 5 informants was selected for this study, consisting of representatives from MPKU and Muhammadiyah Gamping Hospital. The data were collected by in-depth interview.

Results: Within the AHC concept, the General Health Advisory Council Muhammadiyah (MKPU) had an important role as a policy maker and advisor for the hospital and primary health care facilities. MPKU Muhammadiyah had just rea­ched the legal stage of collaboration and coordination with FKIK UMY and Mu­­ham­madiyah Gamping Hospital to realize the concept of AHC. Muham­ma­di­yah Gamping Hospital had the important role of performing clinical hospital and referral services.
