Good feelings at Healthio 2018

1024 660 Quim Campoy

The Hospital Universitari Parc Taulí has participated for the first time at the HEALTHIO event, an innovation fair held in Barcelona gathering the different stakeholders of the healthcare sector, namely patients, healthcare professionals, public sector and companies.  

In our corporative stand, representative staff of the hospital have shown to hundreds of visitors some of the most innovative products developed herein: the “RAIM Viewer”, an application based on augmented reality technology with potential use in the diagnostics and surgical fields, amongst others; the “Surgical Map and SMS notification system”, an informatics tool destined to enhance the management of the surgical patient from the standpoint of professional staff and families; the “App Taulireport”, a software platform which assists managerial staff in the decision making process concerning emergencies and hospitalization; and the “Virtual tour”, an application based on virtual reality allowing pediatric patients to familiarize with the hospital facilities prior to the treatment day.

Thanks to a survey taken from visitors we have been able to determine that the Virtual Tour and the RAIM Viewer were the most appealing of the technologies shown. It has also contributed to the understanding of the priorities of visitors regarding healthcare innovations. For instance, patients ranked the Surgical Map & notification SMS and the RAIM Viewer as those technologies more likely to improve their experience as users of the healthcare system. Similarly, healthcare professionals have valued the same technologies as those which would better enhance their jobs.

The participation at HEALTHIO has been important to make our inventions known to the public and markets and to forge future synergies with the healthcare industry, which will improve the positioning of  “Parc Taulí” in the healthcare innovation arena. This event has also been an optimum scenario to understand and identify the needs and priorities of patients and professionals in order to establish the future pathways of innovation.

This rewarding experience would not have been possible without the inventiveness, effort and dedication of professionals of our hospital and thus we invite you ALL to participate in the innovation process that will shape the future in healthcare.
