Borboleta

Short Name: 
Borboleta

This open-source software for mobile devices is focused on primary health homecare. The goal is to use mobile tools to promote the improvement of health services for people with low incomes.

The Borboleta Project seeks to develop mobile electronic health records capable of integrating text, audio and visual data; provide privacy and security for users and patients; synchronize mobile databases to reduce replication; transmit multimedia data over wireless networks to and from smartphones; data mining healthcare information; and human computer interaction and automatic speech recognition. It is unclear if the Borboleta Project will develop teleconsultation applications to be integrated into its platform.
