The San Carlos Clinical Hospital (HCSC) has sought to improve care, teaching and research since it was founded in 1787. During over two 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 incorporation of many different types of data is revolutionizing the healthcare sector. The ability to apply semantic and analytic technologies to this heterogeneous mass of data, as well as traditional healthcare data, to discover hidden correlations, identify care patterns and support clinical decision-making is paving the way for a new generation of improved healthcare services.
Fujitsu has developed HIKARI, a healthcare API to improve clinical decision-making and the accurate assessment of risks for individual patients.
