Nine new facilities have started receiving referral requests via ALERT® REFERRAL since April 1, 2011, in the scope of the Portuguese Ministry for Health's "On Time Appointment" project.

 

Santa Casa da Misericórdia de Lousada, Santa Casa da Misericórdia de Felgueiras, Santa Casa da Misericórdia de Fão, Santa Casa da Misericórdia de Vila Verde, Santa Casa da Misericórdia de Esposende, Santa Casa da Misericórdia do Marco de Canaveses, Santa Casa da Misericórdia de Riba de Ave, Santa Casa da Misericórdia de Póvoa de Lanhoso and Santa Casa da Misericórdia de Vila do Conde are the facilities where the solution went live.

 

The ALERT® REFERRAL system enables the simplification of procedures as it adds clinical information to the referral, generates referrals based on clinical criteria and informs the citizen on waiting times.

 

The ALERT® REFERRAL solution is totally implemented in Portugal through the Portuguese Ministry for Health's "On Time Appointment" project and has issued over 2 million referrals since its start in 2006.
