IT and Health

IT and Health is a studio that bridges the gap between health sciences and IT (Information Technology).

The basic idea is that IT should be developed so it can be used as a valuable tool to prevent diseases, diagnose diseases and choose the best treatment for the specific disorder.

IT can also be used to develop communication with doctors and patients in the future. IT is also used in many of the activities performed every day around the country's hospitals. It may be in the diagnosis, treatment or prevention. Here there is a need for students with innovative and groundbreaking ideas that can optimize and improve the way diseases and patients are treated.
