It was selected by the Faculty of Engineering as an EXTENSION PROJECT in the 2016 competition. DONOCARDIOFACIL is carried out by NIB teachers in collaboration with the San José Hospital and the Hospital (Auxiliary Centre) of Pando and Engineering students who gain university extension experience in contact with health personnel, patients and their families. DONOCARDIOFACIL brings together prototypes of Medical Informatics systems to facilitate the registration of blood donation (HEMOLOGICA), to follow up people with heart failure to improve their quality of life (SIMIC) and to efficiently manage hour reserves in polyclinics (SAREM and SAMI). Engineering students teach the use of medical informatics tools in Hospitals while thoroughly testing the systems in their pre-dissemination phase. On completion of the assignment they pass an "extension module" or "workshop module" as part of their degree.

Students: Iván Barbot, Bruno Cima, Nicolás Comerci, Sabastián Díaz y Pía Grilli.
Teachers: Ing. Martín Arregui, Ing. Agustín Guerra, Ing. Paulo Sande, Dra. Mariana Sosa e Ing. Franco Simini.
Hospitals referents: Dr. Jorge Bove, Dr. Alejandro Fischel, Dra. Ana Noble y Dr. Walter Oliveira.

INGE - (2010):

Isaac, Nikola and Galileo go to School (INGS) is an Outreach project with socially critical context primary schools of Las Piedras.

Teachers in charge: Prof. Ing.Daniel Ariosa y Prof. Ing. Franco Simini

PLANOJO (2008)

Cooperation project between NIB and the Centro Oftalmológico of Saint Bois Hospital. PLANOJO is an advanced patient workflow system based solely on logistic data to the exclusion of the medical record, in which system, the future connection must be foreseen. PLANOJO has the capacity to handle up to 1000 consultations per day, each divided into up to 50 steps, a booking horizon of 1 year, 100 acting doctors and technicians and a memory of 50,000 patients and 2 million consultations. PLANOJO includes the generation of service quality indicators, based on logistics. PLANOJO does not handle clinical data, except those essential for logistics, and is developed for ophthalmological care in consulting rooms and surgery at the Saint Bois Hospital.

Students of the subject "Software Engineering" at INCO: Gabriel Arrospide, Federico Bello, Florencia Bujan, Magela Cairo, Pablo Clavijo, Saúl Fagundez, Joaquín Fleitas, Juan Herman, Pablo Ibáñez, Miguel Machado, Claudio Perrone, Sebastián Sierra, Sebastián Vergara y Juan Pablo Vignola.
Teachers: Ing. Mariana Grunfeld, Ing. Jorge Triñanes, Dra. Judith Uturbey e Ing. Franco Simini.

BiliLED (2004) and BiliLED Industrial (2005)

BiliLED comprises a monochromatic illumination system specially designed for the phototherapy treatment of neonatal jaundice. The characteristics of the equipment (luminous intensity, delivered spectrum, homogeneity of irradiation and lifetime) make it a true innovation. BiliLED was patented. BiliLED was originally developed by Prof. Adj. Horacio Failache of the Institute of Physics of the Faculty of Engineering and has been developed and built in collaboration with NIB since August 2004.

Student: Daniel Geido
Teachers: Prof. Adj. Ing. Horacio Failache y Prof. Agr. Ing. Franco Simini.

BiliLED Industrial

On the other hand, BiliLED-II takes the technological solutions of BiliLED and adds to them:

BiliLED and BiliLED-II are and will be protected by a University patent.

Student: Daniel Geido
Teachers: Prof. Adj. Ing. Horacio Failache y Prof. Agr. Ing. Franco Simini.

PREMAX (2003) and PREMAX Industrial (2008):

The evaluation of the respiratory muscle function of patients is a fundamental importance for the diagnosis and follow-up of some patients affected by neuromuscular pathology, in patients in intensive care and in chronic respiratory patients. In respiratory muscle function, the action of the diaphragm stands out, responsible for 70% of the effort. The muscular force of which the patient is capable is related to the pressure developed during inspiration in what is called the "maximum occluded inspiration". There are two methods of measurement: by means of a tube adapted to the mouth, sharply occluded by the technician, and with a nasal inspiration stroke ("sniff") which would better reflect the effort of the diaphragm. The recording of occluded expiratory pressure is also of interest. The development of equipment to measure these pressures over time and their peak value is useful clinically and for monitoring the effect of drugs. An interface for the patient to see a graphical presentation of the pressure should be included. The study should have the possibility to be documented graphically.

Students: Nelson Churi, Yennyfer Forelius, Ing. Fiorella Haim y Alejandro Hodos
Teachers: Dr. Hector Píriz y Prof. Agr. Ing. Franco Simini.

PREMAX Industrial

On the other hand, the PREMAX prototype is duplicated by streamlining the technological approach after four years of clinical use. The new prototype for further clinical evaluation is a step towards its industrialisation through a future technology transfer process.

Student: Freddy Kugelmass
