Over the next 12 months, the Ministry of Health will invest $ 2 million to deploy the service in Mato Grosso. The Telehealth is a program that offers consulting primary care teams at a distance using information and communication technologies.

The program allows health professionals to exchange information without leaving the service centers through videoconferencing on the Internet. The tool, which integrates more remote regions to the great centers of research and reference, allows actions such as a second medical opinion, beyond the discussion of cases with multidisciplinary team. This avoids unnecessary travel for patients, the diagnosis and allows qualified continuing education of health professionals.

In practice, the expansion of Telehealth means more speed and less downtime. Sometimes the patient has an EKG in a health post, but there is a doctor able to perform the reading of it. With the program in UBS, this professional will have a real-time diagnosis of the patient to be able to quickly make appropriate referral, says the Health Minister, Alexandre Padilha.

The service is linked to the Basic Health Units (BHU) and assists in the population treated with SUS agile and accurate diagnoses. Currently, 1,471 health services rely on the program, benefiting 947 municipalities in 12 states: Amazonas, Ceará, Goiás, Minas Gerais, Pernambuco, Rio de Janeiro, Rio Grande do Sul, Santa Catarina, São Paulo, Tocantins, Mato Grosso do Sul and Acre.
