Institutional Digital Medical Imaging Network project

Implementation year

The Institutional Digital Medical Imaging Network (Red Digital Institucional de Imágenes Médicas – REDIMED) project consists of providing the Social Insurance Fund of Costa Rica (Caja Costarricense de Seguro Social – CCSS) with a comprehensive digital imaging solution that offers institutional coverage and will improve response time, diagnosis and quality of patient care. We also look to add value to the Single Digital Health Record (Expediente Digital Único en Salud – EDUS) by integrating the two solutions.

The REDIMED project will create a place to store and manage digital medical images. This system will allow tests and imaging to be recorded and help create the necessary conditions to provide teleradiology consultations. The information can be accessed from anywhere in the world, and remote medical collaboration is made possible as imaging results and patient records are brought together in the EDUS. The system helps to schedule patient appointments according to the availability of institutional resources, generate statistics to improve decision-making by senior management, and ensure transparency in the processes carried out.
