If you’ve taken the time to read what our concept, neohealth, and E.A.Q is all about you might recognize the quality health care WHO so elegantly describes. Quality is exactly what we are aiming for and it can be built with the foundation of E.A.Q that is based upon WHOs international guidelines. In our recent posts we’ve described the theory behind quality health care and the areas we aim to improve with Project S. Now, it is time to get a little more practical and show you the functions and effect of Project S. Every single individual will be a crucial part to its existence and functionality. You will soon be able to save lives through the simple act of using our software.
