Jakarta (ANTARA) - The Ministry of Health (Kemenkes) will launch the SatuSehat Mobile public health application on March 1, 2023, as an update of the PeduliLindungi COVID monitoring application.

In a written statement released on Tuesday, Kemenkes' Chief Digital Transformation Office (DTO) Setiaji said that people who still use PeduliLindungi only need to update the application automatically or manually.

After agreeing to the terms and conditions of use of SatuSehat Mobile, users only need to log in with the mobile number or email that has been registered in the PeduliLindungi application.

SatuSehat Mobile is currently only available in the IOS version, with the Android version to follow in the near future.

"User profiles, vaccine certificates, and vaccination tickets will also be synchronized automatically," Setiaji said.

PeduliLindungi users do not need to create a new account to use SatuSehat Mobile.

All features in the PeduliLindungi application are also available in SatuSehat Mobile.

In the near future, there will also be a Health Diary feature that records and monitors the health conditions of users and those closest to them.

With the Health Diary feature, SatuSehat Mobile can provide information and monitor health according to the user's body condition.

The new health app will gradually add other personal health support features using integrated data from the SatuSehat Platform.

"From children's immunization, hospital registrations, doctor's examination results, to medicine purchases, everything will be accessible on SatuSehat Mobile," he said.

Setiaji said registration for data integration into SatuSehat Mobile can be done on the Ministry of Health website (satusehat.kemkes.go.id/platform).

The webpage can guide application developers, especially at regional health offices, to apply the same standards in data interoperability with the SatuSehat Platform, he said.
