Welcome,  Bem-vindos, Bienvenidos

Welcome to the 10th Pan American Health Care Exchanges Conference- PAHCE 2015. This event reinforces the tradition of the PAHCE in our continent. The purpose of this event is to create cooperation, collaboration and knowledge sharing opportunities between professionals and researchers in the areas of health care, biomedical engineering and medical technology industries. The conference will cover various subjects ranging from engineering and medical research to industrial practices. It will examine the latest progress and developments in biomedicine, bioengineering, clinical engineering and the health industry.

We invite professionals to submit their work and sharing their research, its development and results. The selected abstracts and or papers will be published in the three official languages of PAHCE, English, Spanish and Portuguese.

PAHCE 2015 will be held at the internationally recognized cities of Santiago and Viña del Mar– Chile. Santiago is the capital of Chile, and historical city that it is known for its beautiful parks, museums and old buildings.  The variety of architectural styles combines elegantly with the modern structures reflecting a sign of progress. Santiago is near the mountain range of Los Andes, also near the beaches of the Pacific coast, vineyards with splendid courtyards, besides offering multiple attractions for daytrips.  Viña del Mar is known as “The Garden City” and is famous for its natural beauty and exuberant nature. Because of its privileged location, it has been the center of important conferences and events. It is close to well-known ski and sport fishing centers, famous wineries and beautiful beaches.
