The Carlos Slim Foundation presents in the Digital Health Forum: “MIDO–CASALUD a success story”

In the framework of the Digital Health Forum Mexico 2019 Transforming Healthcare, Dr. Roberto Tapia-Conyer, CEO of the Carlos Slim Foundation Slim, explained that Digital Health is the new global paradigm for the design and implementation of innovative solutions that catalyze the efficiency and quality of the health system.

During his conference, “Digital health in the transformation of the health system in Mexico: MIDO–CASALUD a success story”, he explained how, using the tools and platforms offered by Digital Health, the most vulnerable population sectors can be benefitted.

An example of this is the MIDOCASALUD integral model, which, using a robust digital platform, allows personalized care to be provided through intelligent systems so as to improve joint responsibility between health workers, patients and their families regarding healthcare.

“You have to talk about the six “Ps”, which are the driving force behind the new health paradigm that benefits people:

  1. Proactive – deliberate people search
  2. Preventive – timely detection
  3. Predictive – anticipation of the outcome
  4. Personalized – precise and individualized intervention
  5. Participative – empowering of the individual
  6. Permanent – ongoing care.

For this reason, the role of digital tools in the empowering of people has to be acknowledged”, Dr. Roberto Tapia-Conyer said.

Digital Health is the new global paradigm for the provision of effective, fair, and high quality healthcare services, with great humanism, which can connect people and their families with the health centers and their communities, and with transparent performance measurement system with accountability.

Finally, Dr. Hector Gallardo Rincon, operating solutions director of the Carlos Slim Foundation, will appear today on the panel: Personalized tests for Mellitus Diabetes, giving the conference: Personalized Coverage in Type 2 Diabetes in Mexico; MIDO-CASALUD a success story.
