Latin America Health Care Network

MedNET aims to establish a collaborative framework with counterparts in Latin America to promulgate access in underserved regions of Latin America to efficient, cost effective, high level and high quality medical resources.

The proposed healthcare database and medical platform will directly impact on patient safety by enhancing clinical services and improving the primary healthcare in the pilot locations. This will be achieved through advanced diagnosis and treatment methods, efficient collection and sharing of data on treatment outcomes and patient demographics and collaborative medical research.

This system effectively embeds European medical protocol and standards for medical information exchange, storing and representation and, given the fledgling nature of electronic Health Records in the targeted regions, will support diffusion in the wider up-take of electronic European standards.
