Cross analysis of data was key to innovating healthcare

The San Carlos Clinical Hospital (HCSC) has sought to improve care, teaching and research since it was founded in 1787. During over 2 centuries of history, the hospital has changed and adapted to meet the demands of the residents of Madrid and the high standard of its facilities and staff have made it a national and international leader. The HCSC Innovation Unit of The Institute of Sanitary Research of the San Carlos Clinical Hospital (IdISSC) is responsible for promoting, supporting and disseminating healthcare innovation and supporting the process of transforming ideas into products and services that represent value for patients, staff and the system as a whole.

The digital transformation has seen the advent of Big Data and the analysis of data from all sectors, including healthcare, to help organizations make better decisions. The potential of Big Data in healthcare lies in taking advantage of all the information that can be gleaned from data to improve the quality of the sector and, most importantly, improve the care provided to patients and the public.

Traditional healthcare institutions have extensive paper archives built up over many years, representing a body of data that is often difficult to systematize, locate and interpret. The implementation of the electronic clinical history represents significant progress, facilitating analysis by providing information in an accessible and legible format with centralized access.

However, in a “post-digitization” era, the information generated on a daily basis remains underused. “We have access to a vast quantity of data but it’s hard to extract meaningful information that helps us improve the quality of the care we provide,” explains Dr. Julio Mayol Martínez, Medical Director and Director of Innova-tion at the San Carlos Clinical Hospital.
