Health screening results recorded in SELangkah for future reference

SABAK BERNAM, May 28 — Medical results of participants in the free health screening programme Selangor Saring which is displayed on their SELangkah mobile application (app) will be kept as a health record for future reference.

Therefore, Selgate Healthcare Sdn Bhd general manager Dr Jeevarajah Ratnarajah advised participants not to delete the app once they have completed the free health checkup.

“Most who attended the screening programme have already downloaded the app. We hope they will continue to keep the SELangkap app on their smartphones because information on their medical checkup is important in retracing health-related information.

“We also want to use SELangkah as a health record book, so it would make it easier for us (doctors) to refer to the data in the future,” he said.

He said this when met at the Selangor Saring programme for Sabak state constituency at Grand Sabak Hotel & Mini Convention Centre near here today.

The Selangor government has allocated RM3.4 million for the Selangor Saring programme, which would benefit 39,000 people, particularly those with a family health history, who are obese or lead an unhealthy lifestyle.
