Wiwik Anggraeni explained, the background of the study was the fact that Indonesia is a country with a high rate of dengue fever sufferers. According to data from the Indonesian Ministry of Health, as of January 2019 there were 13,683 cases and 133 people died from dengue fever. “Therefore, it is necessary to predict the spread of dengue fever for the next few years so that Indonesia is more optimal in anticipating the spread of the disease,” she explained.


Wiwik also explained, that Malang became one of the cities with a high level of dengue fever. During January 2019, 72 people in Malang had been infected with dengue fever. Therefore, Wiwik and the team chose Malang as the first research experiment. “But it does not rule out the possibility that the application of e-jatim sehat can be applied to various regions in Indonesia,” he said.

Wiwik explained, e-Jatim Sehat application is an application that is used to predict, provide visualization, and Decision Support System to reduce the spread of dengue in Indonesia.
The target of this application, according to Wiwik, is health agencies such as Puskesmas and Local Health Offices. “This application will make it easier for health agencies to see the prediction of the spread of dengue for the next few years,” said

Wiwik explained, this research he began in 2016 with his team from the ITS Information System in Higher Education Applied Research (PTUPT) which was previously under the Ministry of Research, Technology, and Higher Education (Kemenristekdikti). “The initial research of this application is still limited to prediction and vialalization, now we have developed it by adding a Decision Support System (DSS),” she said.

DSS are warnings and suggestions that can be done by the Health Office to reduce the number of dengue spreads based on existing predictions. Through this DSS, the Health Office can be better prepared to anticipate the impact of the spread of dengue fever that will occur. “DSS is also adjusted to the right schedule for the Department of Health in taking anticipatory actions,” explained the ITS information systems alumni.

Wiwik also explained, besides having a DSS to support the mitigation of the spread of dengue fever. This Healthy e-East Java application also involves many factors in predicting the spread of dengue fever, so that the data obtained is more accurate. “These factors include climate, temperature, rainfall, wind speed, regional topography, and population,” she added.

This e-jatim sehat application has been tested on the Health Department in Malang. Wiwik said, the public response regarding this application was very good. They admitted that they were helped to prepare anticipatory actions for the spread of dengue fever in Malang. “Through existing predictions, they are also helped in making a budget, such as how many immunizations are needed, and others,” he said.

Wiwik and his team hope that in the future this application can be used in all health agencies and can reduce the number of dengue sufferers in Indonesia. “In essence, hopefully this application can be useful for the people of Indonesia,” he said. (sin / ITS HUMAS)
