The strategies that have been used in the Health System to reduce the impact of diseases such as cardiovascular diseases, in the society, have not achieved the desired results and even though have had a huge increase in the cost of the incorporation of new technologies, which were usually claimed as high complexity ones, for diagnosis and treatment, without having been properly evaluated their performance in clinical practice.

The consolidation and development of the INCT-MACC, will pursue the development of new knowledge and technological innovations that seek the understanding of the functioning of complex physiological systems aiming at obtaining solutions for the complex problem of health care in Brazil. The use of this knowledge in this project will be of fundamental importance for the project itself and for the development of the corresponding technology. In order to do so, the development and acquisition of new knowledge and methods of communication between the participating institutions and those within the health system and also with the population are also required. This leads to a flock of professionals from various areas of knowledge (engineering, computer science, medicine, health and related areas) focused on: (i) putting the computational modeling and computer science technologies, information and communication to the service of the health of the country and (ii) training new professionals with the purpose of applying this new knowledge and technologies (and of continuing with their development).

Thus, given the requirements of its Mission and aiming at reaching the levels set out in its Future Vision, the INCT-MACC will develop over the next 5 years, and in accordance with their Values and Principles, the following Program of Activities in Medicine Assisted by Scientific Computing for the period 2009-2013:

  1. Research and Development;
  2. Human Resources Formation;
  3. Knowledge Transfer to Society;
  4. Knowledge Transfer to the private sector in health.

Finally, as we shall see in the description of the R&D and FRH programs of the INCT-MACC, all activities are foreseen at the frontier of science, leading Brazil to the forefront, and to play the role of a leader in this area of knowledge with a significant impact on the health and welfare of humanity.
