Our newly built modern operating theater is a vital addition to the refinement of neurosurgical techniques and essential to the development of minimally invasive surgery in the Neurosurgery Clinic at «Evangelismos» General Hospital. There is a constant demand for changes as we strive to improve our practices and the environment for the benefit of our patients. These changes are heralded by our new operating theater. The modern operating room requires an increasing number of new surgical instruments, monitoring and imaging devices, information systems, and communication networks. We paid attention to the integration of all these resources in order to improve the quality and efficiency of our surgical and training procedures.

NeuroHEALIS was the precursor of MEDILIG, a health information management system that was developed for the Department of Neurosurgery in the University of Athens situated at “Evangelismos” General Hospital. NeuroHEALIS was fully operational during the period from 2006 to 2009 with several publications, presentations and pilot studies that were based on its use. NeuroHEALIS was also functional inside the operating room to capture video and to record operative details.
