Information Technology Unit

The VHIR Information Technology Unit is formed by an operational core of professionals who lead the processes associated with the VHIR information technology systems, facilitating the management, planning and monitoring of the subcontracted services and the projects under development. It responds to the information technology requirements of both research personnel and the research support units at the Vall d'Hebron Research Institute (VHIR) with regard to IT technologies and infrastructures.

One of the main objectives of the Information Technology Unit is the management of a centralised database called Hippocrates/Hypatia, created to manage all the knowledge of the institution, covering both internal and external processes. This enterprise resource planning (ERP) is interrelated with other useful tools for research personnel such as:

  • VHIR Intranet, which houses different modules which can be accessed by both VHIR personnel and personnel collaborating with the Vall d’Hebron Barcelona Hospital Campus. For example, it provides access to
    • The management of clinical trials under way at the Campus (Clinical Research)
    • Economic management (Econet)
    • Personnel management (HR)
    • Reserving scientific and technical services (UAT, UEB, common equipment)

  • Management scorecard for extrapolating indicators in real time of the activity carried out by the VHIR.
