Mobility and Web technologies radically impact patients’ attention and we congratulate Alestra for being at the forefront with this adoption,” said Ken Epps, President of Agnity Healthcare.
Alestra has also set an alliance to Health Digital Systems and its platform Dendritas, which solves the needs of the hospital’s information systems, electronic medical records, and imagery, among others, complying with the requirements of the new NOM 024 regarding functionality, security, reliability, integrity and interoperability of the information. “At HDS we’re working on the transformation of the paradigm of the Health Sector in Mexico and Latin America through solutions and services with state-of-the-art technology; the alliance to Alestra is one more proof of that,” said Jesus Hernandez, Commercial Director at HDS.

With the Digital Education solution, Alestra becomes the first carrier in the industry to deliver a quality learning management solution in Mexico.
Both solutions, Digital Health and Digital Education, will be hosted in Alestra’s data center; thus, ensuring a 24/7 operation continuity, confidentiality, integrity and availability of the information, without violating the information security policies of health and education institutions.
