We have a lot of government services running in isolation with their own data silos. Information is not easily shared between institutions both government and public. Taking health data as an example, if there is a national health data management system with proper Application Programming Interface (API)s, all hospitals and institutes like pharmacies, laboratories can exchange data with higher accuracy, security, and efficiency. I suggest a cause for an API and open data driven culture for all government systems.
