Indonesia Transitions PeduliLindungi into Citizen Health App

The modification of the PeduliLindungi application, which was created into a citizen health app, was made public during the 4th Digital Economy Working Group (DEWG) Meeting and the G20 Digital Economy Ministers Meeting (DEMM).

The PeduliLindungi application must also be downloaded and used by all delegates attending G20 events, including the G20 Summit in November 2022, to spread awareness of it through DEWG and DEMM.

PeduliLindungi will also include new elements to support its status as a citizen health app, such as a “health resume” in compliance with the policy. This includes a history of domestic and international vaccinations -for foreigners to simply use it. Future versions of the PeduliLindungi programme will be created to be prepared for any other potential pandemic outbreaks outside COVID-19.

Indonesia’s Ministry of Health previously stated that it will maximise the health services offered through the app and include “Care for Protect” in 13 languages. Thus, the G20 presidency’s guests will receive the greatest calibre of medical care because of the Ministry of Health’s preparation of PeduliLindungi in 13 languages.

PeduliLindungi is currently available in 9 languages and others are being worked on. The 9 languages are specifically Indonesian, English, Chinese, French, Japanese, Russian, Arabic, Korean and Spanish, with Portuguese, German, Italian, and Turkish making up the other 4 languages being processed.

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

The app was initially created to help the appropriate government organisations track and control the spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19); and to perform contact history tracing with COVID-19 patients, the programme depends on community participation to allow users to contribute location data while travelling.

Users of this programme will also be notified if they are in a crowd or a “red zone,” or a neighbourhood or village where it has been noted that there are persons with positive COVID-19 infections or patients who are being watched if they are in these places.

Meanwhile, the G20 Digital Innovation Network (DIN) prizes were given to five Indonesian startups. Semuel A. Pangerapan, Director General of Informatics Applications at the Ministry of Communications and Informatics, thinks the prize would foster a culture of worldwide competitiveness while accelerating the five firms’ growth.

The Director General wishes for the G20 DIN to develop into a venue for Indonesian companies to form partnerships. The G20 DIN will be able to help digital entrepreneurs comprehend how businesses in other G20 members operate.

Furthermore, the presence of a 5G signal was confirmed during the DEMM and the 4th DEWG Meeting, and it conforms with the ITU institution’s reference. This ensures that the quality of telecommunications network services is on par with that of other nations.

In terms of speed, the quality telecommunications network can already access data at a rate of up to 5 gigabits per second, thus standardisation is crucial if Indonesia’s 5G network is to work with the right gadgets.

The fifth generation of cellular networks, or 5G, has significant benefits over the fourth generation. With 5G, data access speeds are significantly increased, data access latency is significantly reduced, and the network’s capacity to connect with a variety of devices is significantly increased. Artificial intelligence (AI), virtual reality (VR), cloud gaming, drones, robots, autonomous vehicles, and smart factories are just a few applications of this technology.
