The correct use of partograph is a form of active and open behavior in the labor process between responses to stimuli through real action. One factor that influences a person's actions is the motivation that requires particular interventions that can motivate midwives to complete partograph filling. Because completeness of the partograph is essential for the safety of mothers in labor and their babies, especially if the patient experiences labor congestion, this research is a mixed methods (R&D and quantitative) research. Assessment of application feasibility was carried out using the Technological Acceptance Model (TAM) approach; this research was conducted at RKDIA Pertiwi Makassar City, from March 8 to March 29, 2021, total sampling technique, namely all midwives on duty at RSKDIA Pertiwi Makassar (60 midwives). In this study, data is not paired with two different variables, so that data analysis uses the Independent Sample T-Test. The results of the independent t-test analysis show that the Sig. (2-table) value is 0.000 <of 0.05, so it can be concluded that there are significant differences in the behavior and motivation of midwives before and after using the digital partograph.
