David Pescador and Juan Blanco, who are the ‘traumatologists’ and they were the ‘gateway’ to the doctors, joined the project. And that led them to see that to bring the team together, and they had to have an ‘agenda with calls and messages and so on, With the loss of time that it supposes and the little potency it gives because it was not something they used to use.”
“Otherwise we saw it in the use of techniques Very concerned about data protection Which they share and don’t trust,” notes the CEO of Medity. And that was when Medity saw the light.
