VirtualCare is a spin-off of that originates from the experience acquired over the last 10 years by a group of researchers based at the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Porto, with different backgrounds and experiences ranging from medical and biostatistics to computer science. The main goal of VirtualCare is to create solutions that allow the systematic application of information technologies and biomedical knowledge to the health care area, aiming to improve its quality and increase its efficiency. The products, processes and services we intend to introduce onto the market cover the main stages of the information cycle in Health, enhancing the medical decision-making processes and increasing patient autonomy: acquisition; processing; validation; presentation; analysis; interpretation and storage. We intend to supply products with features that: (a) Reduce the institutions’ expenses; (b) Save human resources time and labor; (c) Maximize the efficiency of the employee activities; (d) Improve the quality of the information (e) Increase the integration of the information systems.
