At the meeting, representatives from Infokes and the Health Service discussed what preparations were needed, such as equipment and the availability of the internet network at the puskesmas. This is needed in using the ePuskesmas application, and in a review by the Infokes team, Kab. Batu Bara is ready to use ePuskesmas.
Previously, the Batu Bara Health Office was hesitant to use the ePuskesmas application because of its readiness. But with the presence of an Infokes representative to provide direct direction, these doubts disappeared and turned into full support for the implementation of the ePuskesmas application.
The use of ePuskesmas is able to provide support in this regard because it already has features dashboard capable of displaying health data in an efficient manner real time and able to map users.
