Results: A response rate of 76.4% was obtained, in which 58.3% presented a high level of satisfaction with the use of Telemedicine, showing a positive influence on health promotion (r=0.669, p<0.05; OR 9.28 [95 % CI, 4.54 - 18.98; p<0.05]). Conclusion: It was determined that there is a relationship between Telemedicine and its dimensions towards health promotion as well as high satisfaction on the part of the users.
