OBJECTIVES.: To evaluate the level of satisfaction of healthcare workers and patients with the telehealth service of the Hospital III Regional Honorio Delgado (HRHD), as well as the maturity level of the telehealth service implementation.

MATERIALS AND METHODS.: Cross-sectional, observational study conducted from October to December 2021. The satisfaction of healthcare workers and patients was assessed with the Glaser et al. survey and the Telemedicine Satisfaction Questionnaire (TSQ), respectively. The level of service maturity was assessed using the Pan American Health Organization's instrument for measuring the maturity level of healthcare institutions implementing telemedicine service.

RESULTS.: A total of 129 responses were obtained from healthcare workers. Non-physician professionals' satisfaction with the telehealth service was higher than that of physicians (72.5% vs. 18.3%). Of 377 patients, 77.6% stated they were satisfied with the service. Regarding the maturity level, the HRHD telemedicine service had 32% of items in null status, 40.8% in started, 25.2% in advanced, and 2% in ready conditions.

CONCLUSIONS.: Physician satisfaction was lower than that of other health professionals. Patients had a moderate-high satisfaction. The maturity level of telehealth implementation in HRHD was oriented towards a null or initiated level. Decision-makers need to consider user satisfaction for the telehealth implementation and the follow-up.
