Experience, day after day
The pandemic that has been affecting us for more than a year brought with it new and important experiences with Telemedicine. Al of a sudden, we were forced to stay at home and do everything online, including medical care.
Three regulations (CFM Official Letter 1.756, Ordinance 467 and Law 13.989) were issued on an emergency basis in 2020. Although we need a little more debate until the final legislation on Telemedicine is enacted to guarantee the quality of care and the safety of doctors and patients, this has been a moment learning.
The 2nd edition of our Global Summit Telemedicine & Digital Health also had its format changed and delivered other valuable experiences. We can indeed foster a rich and in-depth debate online. And we will do it again in 2021, Associação Paulista de Medicina and Transamerica Expo Center, so we can keep moving forward.
Digital health may be understood as connected, continuous healthcare through digital and communication technologies.
Its global exponential growth has been determined by the COVID-19 pandemic and it will continue to expand even after the pandemic comes to an end. The digital transformation we are witnessing involves the entire spectrum of healthcare, from quality of life and promotion of health, prevention, diagnosis, treatment, including rehabilitation, through to caring for people at their homes. Telemedicine and telehealth are an integral part of digital health, and doctors and health professionals should practice them in a responsible and humanized way, centralizing care in people’s lives where, when and, whenever possible, as they want it and need it.
The digital health ecosystem is growing at a high speed, with regulators adjusting whatever is necessary to encourage digital innovation and shorten the time required for the sale of diagnostic, therapeutic and monitoring solutions. Payment sources are showing greater willingness to expand coverage, healthcare providers are increasing the use of connected care services, patients are embracing the use of digital health technologies and product developers are investing in the development of new digital technologies.
The Global Summit Telemedicine & Digital Health is an initiative of the Paulista Association of Medicine (APM) in partnership with the Transamerica Expo Center. With a distinctive schedule prepared by the Board of Trustees, its leaders are leading names in the industry today:
Dr. José Luiz Gomes do Amaral, the Prof. Dr. Jefferson Gomes Fernandes and Dr. Antonio Carlos Endrigo.

“Even though the Global Summit Telemedicine & Digital Health had to go virtual in 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic and once again this year, but based on the huge success of the first edition in 2019, it has certainly not lost its great appeal in the rapid development and growth of digital apps in the health area. The concept and format are innovative and match the current expectations of the professionals involved. It also plays a key role in continuous education and in the collection of knowledge resources. The International Society for Telemedicine and eHealth (ISfTeH) is proud to be associated with this event, which, in our opinion, will grow even further into an important annual international meeting covering Digital Health.”
“Taking part in the Global Summit Telemedicine & Digital Health 2020 was an excellent experience! It is a forum where renowned international experts share their knowledge and their latest view of the present and future of digital health. Participants from all over the world can discuss different perspectives and get inspired. The Global Summit Telemedicine & Digital Health is a true catalyst for innovation in healthcare. Latin America’s greatest digital health event fosters a common understanding of what has been achieved and what has to be done to leverage telemedicine and digital health so they become important drivers to provide citizens all over the world with fair access to health prevention and care. I strongly recommend the Global Summit Telemedicine & Digital Health!”
“Our experience from participating in the different editions of the Global Summit were extremely enriching and allowed us to boost our arrival in Brazil in 2019 and generate new opportunities through networking spaces. Similarly, these meetings helped us create synergy among the different players in the digital ecosystem of health in order to collectively analyze and build the future of health.”
