KUALA LUMPUR, April 25 – Despite the MySejahtera scandal, the Ministry of Health (MOH) has indicated its intention to use the app for other health purposes beyond the Covid-19 pandemic.
Average daily MySejahtera check-ins have fallen by up to 30 percent nationwide since late March, suggesting many users are now skeptical amid uncertainty about the safety and ownership of MySejahtera, the Covid-19 app with information about their whereabouts to feed data.
MySejahtera has been embroiled in controversy after a Public Accounts Committee (PAC) report on March 24 revealed the lack of a deal between the government and app developer KPISoft Malaysia Sdn Bhd (now Entomo Malaysia Sdn Bhd) and the cabinet’s approval of direct Negotiations for a new company, MySJ Sdn Bhd, for the app.
Although the government claims ownership of the huge MySejahtera database, Health Minister Khairy Jamaluddin recently confirmed that MySJ can access the MySejahtera database to solve user problems, although the government has yet to contract the private company for the Covid-19 app must formalize.
This anonymous survey by code blue aims to measure public opinion on the MySejahtera app.
Questions asked include whether you trust the app, whether you feel your personal information is safe and secure on MySejahtera, whether you would uninstall MySejahtera if check-in mandates were lifted, what features you would like to use on MySejahtera find it useful and whether you would like to use MySejahtera to store your personal health information for use as a portable electronic health record.
