Digital Support Assistance for Prevention and Treatment of Brain Injuries
In Hungary traumatic brain injury (TBI) is an “epidemic” affecting all age groups of the population, meanwhile there is no accurate clinical register available to provide basis for standardized protocols for treatment and prevention. At the same time, the modern health care systems generate a substantial amount of digital data practically impossible to process, limiting
efficiency and cost-effectiveness of health care providers. In addition, synchronization of various digital data resources is lacking.
It is an international requirement to provide real-time data sets and rapid analysis of them for decision making support. These data sets could provide the fundamental basis of the decision-making algorithms, which could be involved at all levels of healthcare systems from screening procedures and general practitioners to acute clinical treatment and rehabilitation processes.
Based on these facts, our objective is to establish a multimodal digital support system that helps:
For these purposes we obtain and collect patients data by applying the mentioned multimodal and multidisciplinary approach. In this manner we have reliable data covering the entire spectrum of the disease, including the indicative biomarkers for the pathomechanism and outcome of traumatic brain injury along with detailed information regarding the intensive care therapy until long-term outcome.
According to this, the subproject is built up as follows:
