The portal is used by service providers to check the eligibility of workers who are qualified for the health screening programme.

There are over 3000 service providers which includes physicians (clinics), pathology & diagnostic labs and mammogram diagnostic centres.

Subject matter:

The main aim of the whole programme is targeted to increase awareness on the workers' health and promote healthy lifestyle to prevent diseases and disability amongst workers in Malaysia. This is a web portal which is used for the SOCSO Health Screening Programme. The portal is used by panel clinics to validate vouchers (over 2 million vouchers) which are sent to all workers aged 40 years and above to redeem their health screening. Results of the health screening are entered to the portal and interpreted by the system about the workers' current health risk status such as cardiovascular diseases, blood pressure level, Body Mass Index (BMI), blood glucose level, cholesterol level, pap-smear (female) and breast cancer (female). The system also interprets automatically the Framingham cardiovascular risk score for these workers. The service providers are able to make health screening report print-outs for the workers who have undergone the screening. The portal is also able to collect health status/results and socio-demographics of the workers who have undergone the screening while maintaining patient confidentiality. (Currently over 300,000 health screening records are stored in the system's database). The portal is also used to process payments for the services rendered by the service providers.

Description of campaign

The PERKESO Health Screening Program (HSP) was announced by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak in the 2013 National Budget is proof of the Malaysian Government’s commitment to provide better quality of health among workers and to prevent disability and diseases. The HSP is a nationwide program for all Malaysian workers aged 40 years and older who are actively working to undergo screening for Non-communicable diseases such as diabetes, hypertension, cardiovascular disease, stroke and cancer. Such diseases, if not detected early, may lead to serious health complications and premature retirement or death. The main objectives of the HSP are to identify workers with high risk of getting non-communicable diseases for early health management and to prevent health complications and disability. For this noble course, the government invites all private general practitioners to participate as panels in the Health Screening Program which will be launched on February 2013. General Practitioners play a major role in the HSP as they are the forerunners in operationalizing this virtuous effort as well as the key primary care providers for patients who are at risks of chronic diseases.
