The government has announced its intention to add a health feature that will hold residents’ personal health records on the E-KTP program. Head of the Assessment and Application of Technology Agency (BPPT) Marzan A Iskandar unveiled the plan during the 8th e-Indonesia Initiatives Forum in Jakarta on Wednesday

He said the e-health program would be implemented in coincide with the launching of the second generation of E-KTP, which would use microchips to hold owners’ personal data, including their health records.

“The facility will assist physicians with more accuracy regarding the individual’s health condition,” Marzan said on Wednesday as quoted by Antara news agency.

However, there were some things that should have been considered before the program was put into effect, he said.

“We need to improve regulations for the e-health program because it involves many stakeholders,” Marzan said.
