Healthcare information systems play an increasingly critical role in providing maternal and child health care. However, Indonesia's maternal child health data recording and reporting system, especially at the Temanggung Regency, does not work well. This problem is due to the data management being done manually. Therefore, the study aims to create a web-based mother and child health (MCH) information system appropriate to the MCH program based on user requirements.

This study has gathered the information by using focus group discussion (FGD). The FGD was run at the District Health Office of Temanggung. There were 17 village midwives (including the midwives coordinator). The informant was selected based on inclusive criteria such as midwives who give antenatal care service, work more than one year, and have experience filling out the maternal and child recording and reporting.

The result showed that most of the midwives feel exhausted to elaborate the manual recording and reporting of mother and child health due to too much data to fill in. According to the problems that village midwives faced, the application was developed by a web-based approach. The system recorded all the data listed in the maternal-child handbook, maternal cohort, maternal card, baby cohort, immunisation cohort, and recorded the health condition infant and child nutrition growth that midwives must do. This information system can handle the inputting process and automatically give the report as needed for patient care and reporting to Public Health Center (Puskesmas) and District Health Office (DHO). The system is user-friendly and can be accessed directly in the field the online or offline. This information system can generate the official reporting for MCH, Nutrition, Immunization and Family Planning programme, which have been a duty for village midwives.

The web-based maternal health management system has been developed according to the demand of the duties of village midwives. This system recorded and reported for the programmes that midwives must handle, either for operational or managerial levels.
