Abstract Rural areas of Thailand have a physician shortage, even though medical schools produce physicians who spend three years in rural areas. Thailand currently has one physician for every 2,000 people, compared to one physician for every 800 people in Europe and one physician for every 600 people in Japan. To meet the needs of the Thai people, this ratio must be adjusted. Furthermore, at least 102 frontline healthcare workers have been infected with COVID-19 and are unable to work. Thailand has launched the "Build Back Better" normal project to improve the healthcare system and support all healthcare workers during the COVID-19 situation to avoid this difficult situation. The first model, known as "the Pattani model," was developed in rural areas during the COVID-19 period. Patients do not need to visit doctors in person, so healthcare workers can help them by using Telemedicine for remote consultation.Additionally, Thailand will be an aging society with rising life expectancy. Generation X and Baby Boomers will comprise 30% of the total population. Healthcare is currently being disrupted by digital technologies comfortably from their own homes. It would disturb medical innovations like Telemedicine. Patients would no longer have to wait weeks for a diagnosis. The increased demand for aged healthcare, medical and digital innovation must meet.The objective of this research were to identify the key influencing factors and provide a suggested method for promoting Telemedicine services to Thai people.Exploratory and descriptive research was used to gain an understanding of Thai people's attitudes toward Telemedicine. In the exploratory research, secondary research and in-depth interviews were used. Questionnaires were used to collect data for the descriptive study. The data gathered from the secondary and in-depth interviews were used to create a questionnaire. The Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS) software was used to analyze the questionnaire data.The findings revealed that key factors influenced Thai people's use of Telemedicine. Because prospective users believe Telemedicine should introduce the benefits and instructions of Telemedicine and have a special price promotion, service providers should invest in advertising campaigns to promote Telemedicine. Telemedicine service providers should improve the user experience in terms ofClassification: Publicusability, learnability, and reliability. Collaboration with insurance companies or the Thai government to assist users in reimbursing medical expenses is also essential in encouraging customers to use Telemedicine in the long run.
