eHealth Initiatives Across Latin America (LATAM)

The purpose of this research was to conduct a qualitative evaluation of eHealth with a focus on interoperability and clinical terminology standards across Latin American (LATAM) countries.

Opinions presented in this research are based on in-depth interviews conducted with key opinion leaders (KOLs) such as representative of health ministries and standards organizations, vendors, and university researchers across each country in scope.

Additionally, secondary sources such as Frost & Sullivan content, ministry of health websites, and public databases were used for inputs.

About this report

While some governments in Latin America (LATAM) struggle to provide adequate basic medical supplies, others aspire to establish healthcare infrastructure that meets international standards and drives improvements in healthcare services through evidence-based medicine. In either case, healthcare information technology (healthcare IT) plays a key role in improving quality and efficiency of care as well as enhancing workforce productivity. Improvements in healthcare IT drive robust collection of data which can be used to develop national level health policies and programs through electronic Health (eHealth).
