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 official end of the project was in March 2014.
