ALERT is proud of its participation in a useful public health project
This project, co-financed by the POSC (Operational Program for the Knowledge Society), was designed to help patients and healthcare professionals in the fight against respiratory diseases.
The website's main novelty is the weekly Polyclinic Bulletin for the 6 Portuguese regions.
For Jose Robalo, General Sub-director for Health, this new tool is an added-value. "It will keep patients informed, allowing them to control their illness better". According to the specialist, patients will not be the only ones to benefit from it; healthcare professionals now have another tool to reach a diagnosis more quickly and reduce the number of clinical exams.
Already available in Portuguese and English, this platform can support other languages, allowing foreign citizens to plan a safer visit to Portugal.
This service will be divulged by hospitals and primary care centers, and will be used by primary care and specialty outpatient physicians.
