Abstract


Malaria is one the diseases that can cause death, especially in high-risk community groups, namely the pregnant women, infants, and toddlers. More than 310 million people worldwide are infected with malaria every year and about 2 to 3 million people died of malaria. In the area of Tanah Bumbu, the Maternal Mortality Rate (MMR) in 2010 reported 10 deaths in 4,517 live births childbirth. In this case, it is crucial to combat Malaria at the Malaria-based region. This activity should be supported by the role of information technology. Malaria Monitoring System Electronic (e-Mamosys) is an application system developed in an effort to monitor patients with malaria. The application was tested to investigate the effects of beliefs, attitudes towards the acceptance of users. This test covers five variables, namely the perceived usefulness, perceived ease of use, personalization, computer self-efficacy and trust. The test was performed by 30 respondents, including the doctors, health professionals, administrative personnel, and patients. Measurement of the user acceptance of e-Mamosys was carried out using the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM). The results from the study showed personalization effect on perceived usefulness and perceived ease of use. This shows that the e-Mamosys can provide the information needs of users. To gain confidence to the users, e-Mamosys needs to be improved in terms of comfort and security.
