Connecting and supporting health care professionals via ICT
As our population ages, society faces new challenges. Demand for primary health care services is rising: with the retirement of older professionals and an unwillingness amongst younger professionals to re-locate to remote areas, there is a shortage of physicians, especially in rural areas.
It was to meet these challenges that the project “PrimCareIT – Counteracting brain drain and professional isolation of health professionals in remote primary health care through tele-consultation and tele-mentoring to strengthen social conditions in remote BSR”, was initiated. The main project activities started in January 2012. Please find out more about our activities and first results.
