Background and Objectives: Efforts to use data to aid decision-making have not yet realized their full potential. The Faculty of Health, Dian Nuswantoro University (Udinus), has launched Semarang Health Data Repository - Udinus Campus (SEHARIKU) as a health data storage website in Semarang City. However, the public's use of SEHARIKU remains restricted, probably due to a variety of causes such as a lack of awareness of the presence of this site, a lack of information available on it, or features that are not optimal. The purpose of this study is to investigate user behavior on data storage websites.
Methods: This research uses a user study approach with a descriptive research design using an online survey of SEhariku website users. The survey contains a series of questions regarding user behavior when using the SEHARIKU site, for 83 users on the SEHARIKU website.
Results: The research results show that the majority of users have a low frequency of use, of which 51.8% of them 'rarely' access the SEHARIKU website, but the majority of respondents consider the search feature easy to use. Satisfaction with the graphic visualization features in SEhariku is high, with 92.3% of respondents stating they were satisfied or very satisfied. The majority of users also found the platform convenient for finding the data they needed, with 80.7% finding their searches easy. To increase the use and benefits of SEHARIKU, and overcome the low frequency of use, it is necessary to improve existing features such as the search feature, and intensify promotional efforts along with increasing awareness about the benefits of the website.
Suggestion: Motivating users to actively provide input and recommendations for future development of SEHARIKU is very important.
