The Problem

Fragmentation has always been a complex challenge for healthcare systems around the world, leading to a lack of continuity of care.
Now more than ever we need to evolve and Latin America is at the right moments, with a healthcare coverage of almost 100% of the population and an emerging innovation ecosystem capable of leading the transformation.
