Bariatric Surgery Project aims to develop a Virtual Reality platform to support surgeons in prepare and perform the surgery, as well as, estimate patient’s evolution.
Nowadays, we are working to add new functionalities to the Bariatric Surgery system for providing interoperable platform, which will allows it to exchange medical information with the Hospital Information Systems. For this purpose we use two medical interoperability standards:
Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) is a standard for exchange (store, print, transmit, etc.) information in medical imaging.
In the project we use the DICOM standard to retrieve the Patients TAC’s from the Image Database (PACS) and upload them to the Bariatric Surgery Platform, for generate a real 3D representation of the patient’s stomach and simulate the surgery over it.
HL7 Messaging Standard is a messaging international standard for transfer electronic clinical and administrative data between disparate healthcare systems.
In the project we use standard to obtain patient data, like its address or sex, and add it to the Bariatric Surgery Platform, and use it to generate the predictive model, which based on previous data from similar surgeries and combined with data of the patient will be able to estimate the evolution.
