Objectives: Despite being a widespread tool, telehealth was significantly incorporated during the COVID-19 pandemic period, but it still lacks analysis methodologies, greater digital security, and satisfaction assessment instruments that are still little explored and validated. The objective is to assess user satisfaction through the validation of a satisfaction scale with a telemedicine COVID-19 service (TeleCOVID). Methods: Cross-sectional study of a cohort of confirmed COVID-19 cases evaluated and monitored by the TeleCOVID team. To study the scale's measurement qualities, a factorial analysis was performed to test the validity of the construct. Correlation between items and the global scale was assessed using Spearman's correlation coefficient, and the instrument's internal consistency was assessed using Cronbach's alpha coefficient. Results: There were 1,181 respondents evaluating the care received from the TeleCOVID project. A total of 61.6% were female, and 62.4% aged between 30 and 59 years. The correlation coefficients indicated a good correlation between the items present in the instrument. The internal consistency of the global scale was high (Cronbach's alpha = 0.903) and the item-total correlations for the scale ranged from 0.563 to 0.820. The average overall user satisfaction was 4.58, based upon a 5-point Likert scale where 5 is the highest level of satisfaction. Conclusions: The results presented here show how much telehealth can contribute to improving access, resolutibility, and quality of care to the population in general in Public Health Care. In view of the results found, it can be said that the TeleCOVID team offered excellent care and fulfilled its proposed objectives. The scale fulfills its objective of evaluating the quality of teleservice, bringing good results in terms of validity and reliability, in addition to showing high levels of user satisfaction.
