Areas and lines of research
The R+D+i work carried out by BioKeralty is carried out thanks to its participation in projects at a national and international level in collaboration with various strategic partners and entities. Our research work encompasses a wide variety of areas within which different lines of research and projects can be identified.
Primary care includes a health and well-being vision focused on individuals, families, and communities’ needs and circumstances. According to the World Health Organization (WHO) definition, primary care understands health and physical, mental and social well-being as a global and interrelated concept.
According to the Keralty Health Model, primary care should promote coordination among sectors allowing a comprehensive and integrated care at all levels of complexity in order to guarantee a greater state of well-being in users. Consequently, primary care should not be understood as just another level of care, but as a “model of care”. In this sense, five unique characteristics have been identified whose performance leads to a greater problems’ resolution capacity: accessibility, continuity, longitudinal capacity, comprehensiveness and coordination.
