Intelligent use of data can transform public health in Brazil

We work to improve data collection and analysis of public health services

We launched the movement #AbrilPelaVida, recommending a 3-week lockdown in April, accompanied by emergency aid, to contain Covid-19.

What We do

We are a non-profit organization that works side by side with states and municipalities to improve the collection and analysis of data from health services and, thus, positively impact the lives of the population.

How We do

We transform data

in useful information for management to understand scenarios and continuously improve the provision of public services.

We develop

analysis and visualization of open data for use by states and municipalities.

We support

in the daily routine of governments, the development of customized solutions for local realities, in our territorial projects.
