New Social Network for Debating Medical Cases
Technical University of Madrid (Spain) (07/11/12) Eduardo Martinez

Technical University of Madrid researcher Albert Moreira has developed 
SANAR, an online platform designed to facilitate the exchange of 
information among medical practitioners from different parts of the world. 
The SANAR platform enables physicians to hold medical discussions in a 
Web-based environment and overcome the organizational problems of 
arranging group sessions or the cost and infrastructure hurdles of 
videoconferencing meetings.  The platform also implements several security 
protocols and procedures to guarantee secure information and image 
management.  "It is planned to evolve SANAR by building a module to better 
support case studies in an academic environment," Moreira says.  He notes 
SANAR can be used for image-processing analysis, software engineering, 
software engineering experimentation, intelligent virtual environments, 
and data mining, among other applications.  "This movement will be the 
groundwork for building and accepting key platform contents," Moreira 
says.  "From here, we will be able to open up the system to the whole 
medical community, including nurses, pharmacists, physiotherapists, 
dentists, etc."
