The director of the ADIP Intelligence Center, Eduardo Clark García Dobarganes, said that one of the problems that will fight the one-stop shop is corruption and falsification of health records, as well as speeding up the process.
 «What we are going to do is that for a person with a disability who previously had to make six face-to-face visits and not only six face-to-face visits to units, but also to keep a large dossier of documents, are reduced to three visits and that the time of attention from start to finish to access the benefits to which they are entitled is reduced, practically, by half, from 40 to 21 days,» he said.
