icona chi siamo WHO WE ARE

Health Search was founded in 1998 as a research unit of the Italian College of General Practitioners (S.I.M.G.) based on: 1) The development of a training environment in which general practitioners (GPs) could, on a voluntary basis, receive the formation necessary for the codified description and documentation of their professional activity through the use of dedicated software (Millewin). 2) The formation of a network of GPs that includes a number of researchers representative of each geographic region in Italy in terms of patient population size. 3) The creation of a database in which the data obtained from routine clinical practice is collected for reasons outlined in section below.
