    Introduction: eHealth offers a solution to current challenges in maternal health. Telemonitoring can rethink antenatal care, achieving more personalized medicine, especially in high-obstetric risk conditions. A home care model mediated by the development of a mobile and web application that seeks support in clinical decision-making was created in our institution. The software architecture consists of an information system (HCIS, Health Care Information System), a database, an authentication server, and an interoperability bus. Methods: The usability of the software by patients was assessed using the Information Systems Usability Questionnaire (CSUQ) version 3, as well as the satisfaction of the care model designed through a survey in a prospective observational study in 62 patients with a high-risk pregnancy. Participants were monitored in real-time through blood glucose, blood pressure, and weight measurements, and attended telemedicine appointments with an obstetrician from admission to six weeks postpartum. Results: The CSUQ results show a good acceptance of the use of the application by patients both in the global score and the different domains, Global, System utility (SYSUSE), Information Quality (INFOQUAL), and Interface quality (INTERQUAL). The satisfaction survey also shows good results in general and by domains. Conclusion: The findings of this study provide some suggestions for the implementation of a technological development and a care model from the patient's perspective.
