Motivated by the need to reduce the cost of patient transport to health centers, the authors designed a prototype national telemedicine network in Brazil. As a result of this project, we now have an agile, easy-to-use, high-quality telemedicine network that provides greater access to patient data and helps in medical decisions, cutting unnecessary costs to the state and benefiting the population as a whole.
