Innovating in solutions and services for sustainability
Technology can have a decisive contribution to financial, social and environmental sustainability.
Indra identified solutions and services in healthcare which can become potential responses to various sustainability challenges proposed in healthcare in general.
Indra´s aim is to promote these solutions and services.
Innovative Solutions to manage the future of Healthcare
Currently, Indra has an impressive innovation capacity, with high-qualified professionals with expertise in the latest technologies used in Defense, Transport and Traffic. As a result of knowledge transfer from military simulation we have developed:
Surgery Navigation and Simulation Platform:
This surgical navigator prototype system provides to physicians the guidance and control of surgery, based on a preliminary planning, which includes virtual references, optimal paths and measurement of volumes and distances.
This fact allows us to import state of the art advances in technology as well as improvement of production processes and management models.
The numerous projects Indra currently is involved in are a good example of this capacity:
- Tratamiento 2.0: generic middleware platform designed to increase the medical treatment efficiency through patient telemonitoring.
- Toyra: Occupational therapy and virtual reality-enhanced rehabilitation.
- E-Tiobe: Intelligent e-therapy for obesity treatment.
- EpSOS: large-scale pilot of the European Health Project "Smart Open Services for European Patients" (epSOS), focused on the international interoperability of the patient health history and the electronic prescription and dispensation in Europe.
- RealtH: Platform oriented to patient monitoring in the hospital home-care unit
Other innovation areas
This solution links all the available information about a patient (the Electronic Medical Record) and presents it in a way that allows several physicians to share clinical information and improve the diagnostic procedures. A strong communications back end allows access to all the information available about a patient: prior history, recent tests, current treatments. An advanced interface makes it easy for physicians and patients to retrieve and update information, highlight issues and share with other specialists locally or remotely.
These types of tools will allow for improved diagnostics (making the best doctors available remotely for the most difficult cases), reduced costs (avoiding transportation costs for patients, reducing the number of duplicate tests) and higher convenience for patients (allowing for remote access to all information about treatments and continuous feedback, which is particularly relevant for chronic patients).
