Abstract

Human immunodeficiency virus treatment demands constant monitorization and evaluation and tracing tools are important weapons against this epidemic. SaveCare stands for System for HIV/AIDS Virtual Evaluation. It is our goal to develop web-based tools which can motivate the HIV/AIDS patients’ data collection adjusted to both Portugal and Angola. As a result is presented a prototype with a module for HIV/AIDS patients personal and clinical data collection; a module for the performance and quality of healthcare evaluation, that uses a set of indicators and has as output printable reports; and an additional module for configuration purposes. Clinicians find the many features of the prototype very usefull, but additional modules are in need.
