We are committed with several institutions and organisations such as patients organisations and Federations (Eurordis, Sindrome de Lowe, Enfermedades-raras.org, COCEMFE, FEDER, CIBERER), also we collaborate with health institutions and/or the health-social departments in some governmental institutions (e.g. Hospital Clínic de Barcelona, TICSalut Social, Ajuntament de Barcelona, Generalitat de Catalunya, Agència de Qualitat a Internet, Barcelona Health Hub,  UOC eHealth Center) and do consultancy to different companies working in the field of health (e.g. DKV Seguros, 8wires.io).

We regularly participate as experts on different news media — such as RTVE, TV3, 8TV, Catalunya Ràdio, la Xarxa, El PaísLa Vanguardia, diari ARA and El Periódico, among others.
