This EPP intends to upgrade Internet connectivity for 500 hospitals and 8,000 clinics, as well as provide five million patients with direct access to the Healthnet platform. The platform provides a gateway for information sharing among healthcare providers and insurance companies, while offering patients better access to healthcare-related services and education.
Public healthcare facilities will also be connected to MedikTV, the official broadcast channel of the Ministry of Health (MoH), which aims to educate the public on major healthcare issues. The MedikTV project is driven by Medic Media Network Sdn Bhd.
