No one likes to have to wait in the doctor’s office for their turn. Thinking about optimizing time, as well as resources, comes HealthSpot Station – the health kiosk that patients can use for fast medical diagnostics, using video conferencing and diagnostic technology.
The patient only has to select the symptoms and, with the medical instruments available, check the vital signs. On the other side of the screen the doctor checks all medical data collected and discusses the symptoms, diagnosis and treatment. After the consultation is finished, the patient leaves and the entire interior is sanitized.
The goal is to make the kiosks available in medical spaces, but also in pharmacies and hypermarkets, being thus closer to those who need it.
In this program, the IMC selects in communities with the help of educators, psychologists and social workers, young people who have a profile to be future doctors. The Institute of Medicine and Citizenship will fund, through the grants it receives, scholarships to graduate these young people until they graduate doctors.
The student, in addition to the curriculum of the university, will have the guidance of experienced physicians linked to the IMC, in addressing issues such as ethics and social responsibility. The goal is to train professionals who are conscientious and committed to the social goals of medicine, including a commitment to dedicate part of their time to social services.
