Abstract

Health service records in Indonesia as yet manual (using paper in collecting data) and
conventional. In addition, this is espoused by the facts that in remote areas have lack of
specialists. Hence, patients have difficulty to obtain better health care directly from a
specialist. Currently, health care for patients in remote areas is only conducted by doctors
in Puskesmas. Patients have to go to the nearest city which sometimes is very far in order
to obtain health care. To overcome this problem, an application that can connect the
patient to a specialist as well as doctors in Puskesmas to a specialist is required. In this
case, terms such as telehealth or telemedicine could be used interchangeably to address
in the use of electronic technology for patients with distance limitations. Through
Telehealth, intensive care and gives orders to the doctors in Puskesmas in remote areas
to treat some patients could be conducted by using computer and internet
telecommunications technology. Based on the result from functional testing, it is found that
100% of telehealth information system functions is valid, meanwhile based on the result of
usability testing, 60% agreed that telehealth information system is easy to use.
