The Proqualis, created in 2009, turns to the production and dissemination of information and technology in quality and patient safety. Is linked to ICICT / Fiocruz and has funding from the Ministry of Health, through the attention of the Secretariat of Health. It aims to be a permanent source of information and updates for health professionals through the dissemination of technical and scientific content selected from relevance, quality and timeliness. To fulfill its core mission to contribute to the improvement of health practices the Collaborating Centre has this portal – proqualis.net – employing modern information technology.
In addition to identifying, selecting and disseminating multiple sources of content, more recently Proqualis has developed own content as lectures, interviews, videos, reviews, news and more.
