ALERT® MANCHESTER went live on May 12, 2009, at São Lucas Hospital Emergency Department, in Belo Horizonte, Brazil.
This was the first step in the ALERT®PAPER FREE HOSPITAL implementation at the Supplementary Medicine unit of the Santa Casa Group. This unit operates in the private medicine area and is organized in different categories: Group Medicine; Medical Cooperatives; Self-Management; Health Plan.
