By Amanda Albuquerque / HRCPP Press Officer
The Regional Cancer Hospital of Presidente Prudente (HRCPP) became part of the University Telemedicine Network (RUTE), an initiative of the Ministry of Science and Technology, supported by the Financier of Studies and Projects (Finep) and by the Brazilian Association of University Hospitals ( Abrahue) and coordinated by the National Education and Research Network (RNP).
HRCPP’s first participation was on August 6. The next meeting is scheduled to take place on Thursday (03), with the presentation of HRCPP mastologist, Rafael Sá, for the discussion of clinical cases.
RUTE’s objective is to support the improvement of existing telemedicine projects and encourage the emergence of future interinstitutional work. The initiative provides the infrastructure for communication services, as well as part of the information and communication equipment for the research groups, promoting integration and connectivity and disseminating R&D activities of the participating institutions. The use of advanced network services should promote the emergence of new applications and tools that explore innovative mechanisms in health education, distance collaboration for pre-diagnosis and remote evaluation of health care data.
