Fred Hosea, Phd - Kaiser

The Continental Healthcare Innovation Network is proposed as a collaborative resource to Ministries of Health, academia, and innovators in Latin America, to create specialty centers (e.g., telemedicine) that would consult to other members of the network. Each country would have at least one specialty center to coordinate information, research, technology assessment, clinical trials, service models, best practices etc. in its specialty domain. This would give smaller countries the advantage of consultations with larger countries that already have expert knowledge and experience, relieving individual hospitals and small countries of having try to address an overwhelming multitude of complex questions at once, for which they're not well equipped. A current proposal will be sketched out, to consider how problems of large-scale human exposure to heavy metals from mining and petroleum extraction might be addressed via multi-national collaboration on paper-based or lab-on-a-chip technological innovations.
