Abstract: The legal issues regarding telemedicine are ideally regulated in national law to provide legal certainty in responding to demands for medical technological developments and the use of telemedicine. With the existence of a legal system that regulates it, the development of this technology will be more directed in the corridors of applicable laws and values, provide legal certainty for providers and receivers, give attributive authority to law enforcement officials and institutions and ultimately will provide order, benefits and a sense of justice in society. Telemedicine can be said to be legal if in practice there are third parties who witness when we provide patient health services and all activities that are pursued such as nursing care between nurses and patients which are then stored in the medical record and carried out with informed consent. Utilization of telemedicine technology in medical practice can save the cost of treatment of regional patients referred to the hospital, simply by teleconsultation can submit complaints and illnesses to be treated without geographical barrier.
