Many Diabetes Mellitus (DM) patients do not receive treatment from hospital policies that reduce visits and consultations to avoid transmission of COVID-19. There have been many implementations of Telehealth. This review aims to determine the implementation model of Telehealth in Diabetes Mellitus patients during the COVID-19 pandemic, especially for diabetic foot consultation. Telehealth is an implementation that can be applied during the COVID-19 Pandemic, especially for people with Diabetes Mellitus. We created the Indonesian Diabetic Foot Telehealth called KakiDiabet Indonesia (KDI) which is able to offer face-to-face consultations by reducing patient absenteeism (from 21% to 4%), compared to before the pandemic, and being able to meet physical and psychological needs. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the estimated time for health services provided was 75 minutes different from before the pandemic (patients needed 175 minutes). Conclusion: Telehealth systems are the best solution for treating DM patients in preventing the spread of COVID-19. The KDI service system is integrated from prevention, education, Psychotherapy and Diabetic Foot Ulcer Therapy Home Care if needed.
