Appointments For Outpatient Treatment To Made On MySejahtera App
“This will allow healthcare facilities to organise their schedules based on their respective capacities and avoid overcrowding at registration and waiting areas,” said Health Minister.
Health minister says appointments for outpatient treatment and other visits in 2023 may be made on the MySejahtera app starting today.
The health ministry will be expanding the use of the MySejahtera application for appointments at government hospitals and clinics to prevent overcrowding and long wait times.
Its minister said appointments may be made through MySejahtera for 673 healthcare clinics, and this will gradually be expanded to more hospitals and clinics.
“This will allow healthcare facilities to organise their schedules based on their respective capacities and avoid overcrowding at the registration and waiting areas,” she said in a statement today.
The Minister said appointments may be made for outpatient treatment, visits under the National Health Screening Initiative (NHSI) and the healthcare scheme for the B40 group (PeKa B40) and others.
She said appointment dates for 2023 for these services may be set through MySejahtera beginning today, adding that they can be cancelled or changed through the app. Cases that require emergency treatment will not need to be booked through MySejahtera beforehand, she said.
The Minister had said on Monday that the health ministry had begun drawing up plans to resolve the issue of overcrowding at emergency and trauma departments to improve services to the people.
MySejahtera is an application developed by the Government of Malaysia to assist in managing the COVID-19 outbreaks in the country. It allows users to perform health self-assessment on themselves and their family members, monitor their health progress throughout the COVID-19 outbreak.
MySejahtera also enables the Ministry of Health of Malaysia (MOH) to monitor users’ health conditions and to facilitate contact tracing for Covid-19 so they can take immediate actions in providing the treatments required.
MySejahtera is part of the Malaysian government’s efforts to control the spread of COVID-19 and ensure that the public is informed and prepared to take necessary precautions.
The app is available for download on the App Store and Google Play. It is recommended that all individuals in Malaysia use the app to help protect themselves and others from COVID-19.
