“Healthcare equity and universality […] requires the support of digital and telemedicine platforms, which are the only ones that can follow citizens throughout their journey, […] and promote sharing of clinical data and care decisions among all the specialists and operators involved”.
This statement was made by Ottavio Di Cillo, chairman of AiSDeT (Italian Digital healthcare and telemedicine association) during the 1st National AiSDeT conference: ‘EQUITY AND UNIVERSALITY OF THE NATIONAL HEALTH SERVICE: DIGITAL HEALTH AND TELEMEDICINE’.
Organized in Bari with the collaboration of the Digital Innovation in Healthcare Observatory, the conference closed on 28 September 2018.

Maps has given its contribution with the Clinika solution: the vast national network of digital healthcare innovation professionals attending the Convention included Fabrizio Selmi, Healthcare ICT Market Specialist with IG Consulting, and a user of the Clinika product, ULSS 9 Scaligera (Local Health Service – Verona) with Andrea Oliani.
On September 28th, during the session devoted to the increasingly synergic Interaction between digital systems and models for prescription appropriateness and identification of health and care needs, the Healthcare ICT Market Specialist from IG Consulting introduced the powerful semantic software Clinika and its ability to monitor compliance with prescription appropriateness protocols.

This has become more urgent than ever for the Italian Health Service, in order to guarantee effectiveness and innovation in healthcare .
