Abstract
The presence of COVID-19 pandemic makes Indonesian government established a health administration policy through telemedicine in the context of preventing the spread of COVID-19. Indonesia predicted has a high growth in telemedicine. However, previously Indonesia has never had any policy regulating telemedicine which involves direct interaction between doctors and patients. Meanwhile policies and legislation are expected as the determinants of telemedicine implementation. This study aims to analyze the challenges and evaluations for implementing telemedicine policy in health services in an effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19. The study design used was a systematic review that search for the challenges and evaluations made during the implementation of telemedicine policy. As a result, several things which become challenges in the implementation of telemedicine are the possibility of uncertainty that occurs in diagnosis by doctors, technological capabilities, data security and patient privacy, financing, law nor guidelines about telemedicine which is still minimal and challenges related to the individual patient’s own problems. The telemedicine policy to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in Indonesia should not pave the way for health platforms or health service facilities to implement telemedicine without strict regulations. But the State must be present, serve and protect the people against the weaknesses of this practice.
