Our services

Within the project, the strategy for an innovative primary healthcare delivery model for the remote and rural population has been developed. E-Health applications and technologies played a key role in providing access to the population. A cloud-based platform was implemented in combination with minor physical infrastructre such as health kiosks or fully equiped clinic containers. The physical infrastructure directly connected via the cloud-based system to physicians and care givers in hospitals and health centers to provide direct diagnostic and examination services.
