Background: Telemedicine has an important role in diabetes mellitus management, including health reminders. Diabetes mellitus sufferers need to have good self-care management skills to prevent complications. One way to establish a good level of self-management is by providing reminders containing self-management components through communication media.

Purpose: To analyze the influence of health reminders on the self-management of patients with diabetes mellitus at Patas Health Center, Central Kalimantan.

Methods: This study type was quantitative, and the design used the quasi-experimental method with a pre-post test design with a control group. The sample in this study was 74 respondents via purposive sampling, with 37 respondents in each group, with an intervention group and a control group. The data collection in this study used questionnaire measurement tools and data analysis using the Mann-Whitney and Wilcoxon tests.

Results: The research results showed that the results of the analysis using the Wilcoxon test in the control group showed p > 0.05, namely 0.82, which means there was no significant increase in the control group. In the intervention group, p < 0.05 is the same as 0.00, which means there is a significant increase in self-management abilities in the intervention group. Meanwhile, the Mann-Whitey result was p = 0.00, meaning there was a difference between the intervention and control groups.

Conclusion: Health reminders have a positive influence on the self-management of diabetes mellitus patients. Health reminders need to be implemented by service facilities, especially in caring for diabetes mellitus patients. The government also needs to pay attention to implementing telenursing in service facilities.
