The incidence of low birth weight (LBW) is still high. Based on data released by UNICEF and WHO, it is estimated that one in seven births is LBW. Due to their physical condition, LBW experienced health problems. This requires integrated management from health professions even collaboration with other scientific disciplines. Along with the times, information technology is widely used in various fields, including in health care. This study aims to identify the use of information technology to improve the quality of care for LBW. This was a systematic review. Five IT products were intended for use by LBW parents, while others were used by health workers. The use of IT in LBW has benefits, including parental self-efficacy, discharged preparedness, and length of stay (LOS). Information technology related to LBW health care has specific usage and the target user. Each has advantages and limitations or disadvantages compared to other similar IT products.
