Estamos Mais Próximo

A FREE app for detection of respiratory complications and support in the fight against COVID-19 .

About the App

The App Estamos Mais Próximo, which was distributed free of charge by Create IT between April 2020 and March 2021, allows for the early detection of respiratory complications through the usage of an oximeter, in patients of Nursing Homes and Other Institutions. This analysis was not a substitutefor the best assessment by the health professionals who accompanied the users from time to time, whether they were professionals in Elderly Homes or Other Institutions team.

The recommendations made in the context of the application were created based on the indications provided by the Service of Medical Specialties and Clinical Management of the Medical Specialties And Clinical Direction Service of the Hospital do Espírito Santo de Évora, whose support we are very grateful.
