Duosystem´s Solutions

Regulate+

Duosystem’s platform is a pioneer in providing a medical priority dispatch system, whereby it is possible to order and qualify the service flows by focusing on the optimal use of the resources available.

It is structured around four different areas of care (Pre-Hospital, Urgent Care, Outpatient, and Beds), which can be parameterized according to priority-dispatch protocols and operating guidelines.

The solution applies a hierarchy- and region-based model to organize the reference and counter-reference centers, thus ensuring universal access, thorough patient care, and equality in the management of services with full process transparency.

All the information is recorded in order to allow monitoring situational indicators and management reports on monitoring panels according to the needs of each client.

Today the platform is used by the priority-dispatch centers in the states of Sao Paulo, Mato Grosso do Sul, and Goias.
