Peru  is constantly innovating its healthcare system with the goal of improving its over 30 million citizens quality of life. Peru’s digital health system has been making great strides in recent years. One of its main strengths is the implementation of the Integrated Health Information System (HISMINSA), which collects and manages patient health information across the country. 

This system has greatly improved access to health services for Peruvians, especially in remote and underprivileged areas. However, challenges remain. One major challenge is the lack of internet connectivity in some parts of the country, which makes it difficult to implement digital solutions. Additionally, there is a need to improve the quality of data collected by the health system to ensure its accuracy and reliability since the data collected in most rural regions is still paper-based and then digitalized.
