Setiaji: Standardization Becomes the "Backbone" of Data Connectivity in the Health Industry
DailySocial exclusive interview with the Chief Digital Transformation Office (DTO) of the Ministry of Health Setiaji
Last year, while serving as the Minister's Expert Staff in the field of health technology, Setiaji received a mandate from the Minister of Health Budi Gunadi Sadikin to handle the pandemic and make the Covid-19 vaccination program a success with technology, as well as carry out digital transformation in the healthcare industry.
He is trusted to lead a major initiative--and perhaps the first time in the healthcare industry--through the Digital Transformation Office (DTO) to address a series of systemic problems in the country. Armed with his previous strong experience in bureaucracy and technology, Setiaji started his execution by compiling standardization of data as the backbone of the entire health ecosystem.
"Of course, the initial focus is how to deal with Covid-19 because the challenge is that every day around 400-500 people die. For me [becoming Chief DTO] is a noble task to reduce the death rate and spread of Covid-19 by involving technology," he said.
