Digital Hospital: Implementation of pilot interoperability systems at the National Cancer Institute (INCAN)

In 2020, during the COVID-19 pandemic, the "Digital Hospital" project of Genexus Consulting was selected from 500 proposals in the call of the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) to promote innovative and technological solutions in the field of health in Paraguay. This project sought to implement a health information exchange platform at the National Cancer Institute (INCAN) to improve patient care through interoperability of information systems.

In July 2023, pilot implementation began at INCAN, marking the beginning of a digital transformation in care for cancer patients. Despite the challenges, the platform has enabled safe exchange of medical data, improving coordination and continuity of care. In April 2023, the project was successfully delivered, meeting the deadlines set. The platform is expected to replicate in other health institutions in Paraguay and the region, aligning itself with the IDB's objectives of improving access to health services and reducing inequalities.
