Technology applied 
to healthcare

Vall d'Hebron Barcelona Hospital Campus is committed to new technologies applied to healthcare, with a constant focus on patients. This potential for innovation has resulted in an increasing number of projects, such as the Surgical Block, pioneering treatment of ADHD using virtual reality or high-performance diagnosis based on mass sequencing.

Surgical Block

In the field of technology applied to healthcare, Vall d'Hebron University Hospital has a unified Surgical Block, among the most advanced in Europe. Opened in September 2016, this block represented a huge leap forward in terms of technology, that allows Vall d’Hebron to offer high-complexity surgeries, with neurosurgery navigators, 3D imaging systems, integrated ultrasound and the new Da Vinci Xi robot.

Virtual reality and ADHD

The Psychiatric Department of Vall d'Hebron University Hospital is the first in Spain to launch a pilot to analyse the usefulness of virtual reality in the treatment of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). This initiative follows on from research by the Vall d'Hebron Research Institute (VHIR), and has received the Mobile World Capital Barcelona award for technological innovation.


Another project based on virtual reality is neurorehabilitation. This new application of telemedicine and telerehabilitation is the result of public and private collaboration and allows stroke patients to perform rehabilitation exercises from home, under the supervision of the medical team. 

Mass sequencing

Also at the Vall d'Hebron Research Institute (VHIR), a ground-breaking fourth-generation mass sequencing platform is being tested, which allows us to shorten the time needed for diagnosis and customise treatment against infectious diseases, including cancer, Hepatitis and HIV.
