Case Study: Leveraging a 40-year healthcare legacy in Greece
Vara joins forces with MITERA hospital in Athens to bring cutting-edge AI technology to breast screening in Greece.
MITERA is the largest Private Hospital in Greece and member of the Hellenic Healthcare Group (HHG), the largest healthcare services group in Greece. It has a 40-year legacy of providing healthcare in which it has revolutionized comprehensive healthcare to patients across Athens. MITERA operates fully organized departments, special units, outpatient clinics and diagnostic labs and provides comprehensive medical services with more than 1.500 associate doctors of all specialties.
The MITERA and Vara partnership is the first step in their shared mission to increase access to breast screening for women across Greece, and the world.
Its next vision is to put this comprehensive care closer to women across the country; to enable decentralized screening centers in towns, villages, and surrounding islands. Women in these rural regions are currently disadvantaged due to a lack of access to quality-assured breast screening services.
It is envisaged that these screening centers will feed into highly specialized diagnostic clinics where further diagnostic work-up and appropriate management will be ensured.
“MITERA has been at the forefront of providing comprehensive care to women for more than 40 years and our partnership with Vara will allow us to build on this experience by bringing cutting-edge diagnostic tools to the assistance of our teams of radiologists.”
