Indonesia’s PeduliLindungi App to include Children’s Immunisation Data

The Indonesian government, through the Ministry of Health Affairs, will commence the process of digitalising the data of the children who have received immunisation and integrating it into the PeduliLindungi app as part of the digital transformation that is taking place in the health sector.

According to Budi Gunadi Sadikin, Minister of Health Affairs, the information will be maintained in digital format so that parents may easily view their children’s immunisation records at any time and from any location.

Health Minister Sadikin added that they are making several preparations to adopt the system. “Currently, it is under preparation. We expect it will be ready to be used in the near future and to support increasing children’s immunisation coverage,” Sadikin said.

The digitalised data would not be physically lost or damaged for decades, in contrast to the mother and child health handbook (KIA book), which has been used as a tool to record the growth of children including immunisation records. KIA books have been used as a tool to document the growth of Indonesian children.

The PeduliLindungi App is a software aimed to help government officers in shadowing and precluding Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) in Indonesia. It’s dependent on community participation to partake in location data while travelling as part of the COVID-19 tracing. This app will also warn users if they’re in congested or high-threat regions where positive COVID-19 cases or cases are being covered.

Indonesia is one of the largest online markets worldwide and there is wide use of mobile technology; thus the adoption and use of information technology in the health system are continuously being explored. The Ministry of Health announced last year that non-Indonesians can now use the PeduliLindungi application despite the fact that their immunisation certificates were not obtained in Indonesia.

Scanning QR codes with the PeduliLindungi application is possible in a variety of public locations, such as shopping malls, airports, and others and it is available to foreigners as well as concerned Indonesian citizens. The Ministry has stated the hope that individuals who hold vaccination cards issued by a foreign country will be able to use the PeduliLindungi application to access public facilities whenever this functionality is implemented.

Furthermore, an ad hoc group operating under the Ministry of Health was responsible for providing health technology assessment (HTA) services in prior years. The team was tasked with developing a network of regional institutions, professional organisations, and regional institutions that are involved in HTA in their respective communities.

After some time, an HTA committee was formally established under the Ministry of Health with the purpose of analysing health technology such as drugs, health equipment, procedures, and diagnostics. As one of the solutions for the national health insurance system to both reduce costs and increase efficiency, HTA takes on an even greater level of significance.

The government is working on expanding the usage of locally produced medical equipment. The State Ministry of Research and Technology, also known as the Kementerian Negara Riset dan Teknologi or KNRT is continuously facilitating a communication forum that is comprised of representatives from businesses, academia, regulators, and users. The purpose of this forum is to look for ways to build the necessary technology to increase the competitiveness and independence of the Indonesian medical device industry.

Mobile phone technology is widely utilised throughout Indonesia, with network connections available in all of the country’s provincial capitals, district capitals, and the majority of the country’s rural areas located on the central islands.
