Public Health: Cusco, Peru

CUSCO, PERU: HEALTHCARE INFRASTRUCTURE

La Fuente provides healthcare to thousands of adults and children that live in an urban slum outside of Cusco, Peru. To sustain the clinic’s rapid growth, La Fuente needed to convert from a paper records system to a computer based one. The goal of this project was to design an electronic medical records system that that stores patient data, medical clinic records, and tracks community projects. We obtained computers and other necessary electronic equipment, installed the system, and trained the medical staff at La Fuente to use it.
