Technology and Healthcare in Brazil
How to Understand Healthcare System and its Technology in Brazil Health is considered a basic right of the citizens: the Federal Constitution requires the government to fund the healthcare system and allows the private sector to assist in providing such services. In many places across Brazil, however, public healthcare suffers with insufficient number of doctors, outdated equipment, and long waiting lines for appointments and treatments, failing to meet the entire demand for health services. This difficulty to access health makes room for healthcare plan carriers that offer plans for people with different incomes. Since the beginning of 2015, through the law 13,097/2015, the participation of foreign capital companies in the supplementary healthcare was allowed. The publication «How To Understand Healthcare Systems and its Technologies in Brazil» seeks offering investors and entrepreneurs a guide to understand the business issues involving the private healthcare in Brazil, with clear guidelines for all areas of business.
