Responding to the Covid-19 pandemic, Indonesia has been implementing five protocols by today. Cases have raised awareness of medical staff's safety regarding frequency contact with the patients, requiring a costly and complicated clinical management at the Primary Health Care (PHC) Facility. The researchers reported the design thinking process of 'CovWatch,' an Online Based Real-Time COVID-19 Self-Monitoring System, with implementation adaptable to the Covid-19 protocol changes.Three phases of the research: 1). a comprehensive observation of the Standard Operating Procedure in PHC, 2). Ideation, prototyping, and testing the system on a laboratory scale, and 3). Implementation in healthcare facilities from outpatient to an inpatient monitoring device. To understand the protocol, the researchers conducted a review and qualitative study through interviews and focus group discussions (FGD) with medical staff. Results were used for the CovWatch system and implementation design. The prototype consists of a smart band, a smartphone with an app as the data acquisition system (DAC), and the interface supported with IoT. The researchers tested the system in PHC and adjusted the design with the protocol changes during the hospital implementation. Design thinking process of CovWatch prototyping and implementation compromising COVID-19 protocol changes as a real-time online personal healthcare monitor system (PHMS). The design processed adjusted to the protocol changes and complied with the current COVID-19 healthcare situation. A pair-to-pair device for the third protocol on outpatient care and the fifth protocol led to multiple devices paired to a single DAC for inpatient care.

Key words: COVID-19, self-monitoring system, protocol
