3rd SDG: Value-based Healthcare

Rui Freitas, April 07, 2021

Healthcare is a universal good that should be distributed with equity and accessibility. Quality in health is a decisive factor for the well-being and development of contemporary societies. However, there are natural and human barriers that hinder the feasibility of this process. The UN recognizes this reality by proposing “ensure a healthy life and promote well-being for all” as the third sustainable development goal (SDG) of the 2030 agenda.

Information Systems are, therefore, a critical factor to support and make these goals achievable. Based on this premise, it is part of Quidgest’s DNA to be at the heart of digital development, particularly in causes and services that prefigure health as an essential asset and with the aim of adding value to it (value-based healthcare).
