Technological advances of the past decades have kept businesses such as: engineer, mathematician or architect In a new role within the hospital teams of the National Health System (SNS). “symbiosis” What they have achieved with care teams has been proven to be instrumental in “Health Reform” Thanks to the patient for the progress in various fields of knowledge.

This is one of the main findings of the debate table on ‘Management of Medical Technology with Impact on Health’. X global meeting of hospital engineering who organizes medical writing, The cycle of presentations is sponsored Spanish Association of Hospital Engineering (AEIH), sponsoring medical carbide and cooperation electromedical business group (gee) you Servo.

Javier EscaiolaSant Joan de Deu, Head of Bioengineering at the Hospital, explains the role of his specialty since 2005 when he began to work transversely with the areas of management, support, technology and even supply. ,We no longer mount a respirator and leave, But we try to see which one is most useful, we inform the care staff, we follow up and we integrate it so that the information reaches our command center“, They told.

The telecommunications expert pointed out that in addition to maintenance, engineers have expanded their work in hospitals over the past decade. equipment monitoringThe telemedicine, use of ‘big data’, surgical navigation, robotic and including virtual reality, “The key to success is building a multidisciplinary team that connects the worlds of health and technology,” he said.

pandemic technological revolution

This situation, which was already marked by the developments of the previous decades, grew rapidly with the challenges posed by it. covid-19 pandemic in health systems. Technical Director of Information Systems of Primary Care Management of Madrid Health Service (Sermas), an experience Sergio Ruizoqualifies as a “Change”“Who has come to stay.

Health crisis a. forced the construction of new program in primary care To integrate data that ranges from consultations to healthcare professionals, administered vaccines, home care or discharge from doctors with a risk profile. “We created a new information structure for clinical material that it should reach the counselors but also the day-to-day professionals”, he added.

The incorporation of technology has facilitated in this case dashboard creation Which are still used today for coordinating personnel or inspection departments. The next step would be to integrate such progress into the challenge of Telemedicine and video consultation.

3D printing to facilitate operation

Another revolutionary technology that has improved patient care is the development of 3d printing, Which also requires direct coordination between health care and technical profiles. The effect of this tool is, for example, on Recreation of the Body Model To prepare for surgical intervention. While the first steps have been taken to implement Re-created natural ears.

“It’s a team effort. Almost perfect symbiosis between doctors and engineers He is providing the solution”, he explained in the presentation. Jose Luis MartinHead of the Radiodiagnosis Service of San Cecilio Clinical University Hospital in Granada.
