The use of technology is believed to be a solution in overcoming the existing issues, including health issues. In health sector, an electronic documentation system referred to as the Electronic Health Record (EHR) has been introduced and started to be used widely in various countries, including Indonesia. In Indonesia, an innovation of EHR was introduced in 2018 under the name of nursBOX application. This study aimed to describe the perception of nurses towards the use of this application. This was a descriptive quantitative study using electronic survey data collection technique. A google form containing a questionnaire adapted from Galimany-Masclan et al. was sent via email to 322 respondents who were nursBOX users in Bandung District and City, who were obtained through the accidental sampling technique. This questionnaire consisted of 23 statements with a Likert scale. Data collected were then analyzed using the media value with 1 as the minimum value and 5 as the maximum value for each item. Interpretation was then made to classify the answers as positive or negative. Of the 322 respondents, 52 filled out the questionnaire with 53.8% of them expressed a positive perception towards the use of nurseBOX. This positive perception was found in continuity of care (53.8%), usability (50.0%), and record of information (53.8%) domains. Hence, the general perception of nurses towards the use of nursBOX application is positive. However, a review on this innovation should be done because the difference between the positive and negative perceptions is only 7.6%, which is quite insignificant. acting as the point-of-entry for any given scientific paper or patent application.
