Description

Understand an echocardiogram and draw its conclusions are complex and time-consuming tasks, which contains specific parts that might be automated. Thus, this paper presents the EcoCloud, a specialized software which aids doctors, through automatic generation of cardiological diagnostics and allows the use of mobile platforms, which provides mobility and agility. This study considered the system architecture, technologies used in its development and its main functionalities, the predefined rules used in the reports generation, and a case study of over one year period. During the case study, our system was used by several doctors in hospitals, clinics, and units of prompt care from Paraná, Brazil. Along this period, the EcoCloud generated a database of 5,008 reports from different patients containing several features. The results demonstrated that system is a viable alternative for cardiologists who wants agility in patient care and assistance in the decision-making process.
