The Ministry mentioned that among the advantages of this online appointment system is that customers can plan visits to primary health facilities according to time.
They can also change the appointment date through MySejahtera without having to call the health facility.
The system also has an Automated Reminder function to remind patients to be present for the appointment according to the time and date that have been booked.
For emergencies and cases of fever or infectious diseases, people can still go directly to primary healthcare facilities without having to book an appointment using the app.
