Some highlights and major achievements - since establishment

Our affiliate has been able to take-off after a few hard years. We are now in the process of providing some basic useful resources in our country and promoting awareness on interoperability in every event that we can participate in. We are also working on trying to provide useful interoperability requirements, to include in tenders by the ones trying to acquire information systems in healthcare.

Plans for the future?

We hope to gather the Portuguese community and get the needed credits to be considered by others every time they need opinion regarding interoperability in Portugal. Also, continue to grow the number of associates, especially companies.
