Red Universitaria de Telemedicina de América Latina (RUTE-AL)

RUTE-AL seeks regional integration of health in Latin America, from academic networks and in collaboration with the various actors and professionals of health institutions. Its objective is to expand and strengthen scientific and educational cooperation in health in Latin America through the implementation of collaborative activities that support the development of a regional telemedicine network based on the experience of the University Telemedicine Network (RUTE) of Brazil.


Upon registration, any health institution can participate in the sessions but only research and teaching institutions that are members of the academic networks can create new SIGs (Special Interest Groups).

Through the links of RedCLARA (Latin American Cooperation of Advanced Networks) with the academic networks and the articulations between specialists, the participating institutions count on the collaboration of associated networks in Latin America, Europe, Asia, Australia, United States, BRICS countries and Portuguese-speaking countries.

Academic Networks signing the Agreement with RedCLARA for the creation of RUTE-AL

  • CEDIA, Corporación Ecuatoriana para el Desarrollo de la Investigación y la Academia (Ecuador)
  • CUDI, Corporación Universitaria para el Desarrollo de Internet (University Corporation for the Development of the Internet) (Mexico)
  • RENATA, Red Nacional Académica de Tecnología Avanzada (Colombia)
  • REUNA, Red Universitaria Nacional (National University Network) (Chile)
