The ITHC is pleased to announce its 2018 support of The Dominican Childhood Arthritis and Rheumatologic Foundation (FUNDARIN, the “Fundación Dominicana de Reumatología Infantil”) in the effort to upgrade their Rheumatologic laboratory so that advanced laboratory services can be provided in the Dominican Republic.  This effort obviates the need to send samples to the US for testing and waiting for results, adding delay to resulting and increasing overhead expenses.


In 2017 ITHC partnered with VillageMed to advance their Mobile Health Clinic in Carrefour.  "A critical grant from the Institute for Technology in Healthcare (ITHC) allowed VillageMED during this clinic to begin Phase One of our mHealth Care Initiative.  In capturing the mobile telephone numbers of patients, VillageMED will be able to strengthen its clinic work by integrating mHealth (mobile health) services and systems into its medical culture."

VillageMed provides medical missions in Haiti by partnering with US medical schools.
