The future development of information and communication technology is inevitable, including in the health sector, namely electronic-health (e-health). In the Era of the Industrial Revolution 4.0, there has been a huge change. E-health in the health sector is overgrowing. Many applications are created in health services and the distribution of health needs such as drugs, medical devices, and others. The Health sector adheres to the characteristics of medical ethics that respect patient autonomy (respect for autonomy), do good (beneficence), do not do things that will harm (nonmaleficence) and are fair (justice). On the other hand, in electronic print media, especially social media, the patient’s medical secrets are disclosed. This research is a type of descriptive research of the quantitative approach. The study was conducted from April until October 2021 through Google Form. The population in the study was a student and general public, but the exact population number is unknown. For samples taken randomly using the formula Lemeshow with an unknown population and the sample obtained after the calculation of the formula, there are 97 respondence. The results show that it is necessary to disseminate information to the public about these medical secrets so that the public can understand the importance of medical secrets and issue regulations relating to medical secrets in e-health services and anticipate their impact on health service recipients. At the time of the covid-19 pandemic the use of e-health in the community is quite popular considering the situation and conditions that make them afraid to leave the house and choose to consult or buy drugs online. Basically, with adequate counselling or information from the doctor, the patient or his family can assess every step taken by the doctor. Informed consent (approval of medical actions) needs to be considered and essential provided by the doctor and fully understood by the patient / his family. Not every disappointment from the results of medical services using telemedicine becomes a case of malpractice.
