Cloud-Based Stereotactic and Functional Neurosurgery and Registries
- 98 Downloads
As healthcare evolves and increasingly utilizes electronic records, there is an increasing demand and desire to centralize data to learn from the vast amounts of clinical experience across centers. Still, one of the most significant challenges remains how to effectively gather and integrate such data into registries, using a method that ensures quality, reliability, and privacy. This challenge can create significant overhead and burden. In this chapter, we provide an in-depth review of the development of a registry focused on stereotactic and functional neurosurgery, reviewing key elements, needs, and challenges that require consideration for all such registries. Such developments, registries, and integrations are critical to amassing sufficiently experience and knowledge across centers to significant advance the field.

Dr. D’Haese is the cofounder and shareholders of Neurotargeting, LLC. Neurotargeting has acquired technology developed at Vanderbilt University by Dr. D’Haese related to the management and processing of clinical data generated from neuromodulation. Neurotargeting’s role was to create the legal and commercial framework for such a framework to be sustainable. While this chapter is not intended to promote any concept related to Neurotargeting, some of the discussion will mention Vanderbilt University and Neurotargeting data framework called CranialCloud.
