Indonesia is an archipelagic country that needs a model of e-Health Grid for connecting and sharing its resources in the health area. The use of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) for health purposes is growing fast as people need for better services in healthcare. Grid computing technology has proven for large parallel data computation process. Health practitioners and researchers can use it to find new invention and to improve services. Our previous research has proposed a topology of Indonesian e-Health Grid based on referral hospital. This paper is the advanced research of our e-Health Grid model. We design a Software Defined Network for Indonesia e-Health Grid. Software-Defined Network (SDN) allows applications to control the network. SDN is expected to be able to facilitate e-Health grid management. We set some scenarios with different link bandwidth and packet rates to evaluate the performance of the system. The result of this research is a design of e-Health Grid networking that can be used to model e-Health Grid in the country based on referral hospital.
