Bulgarian medical practice is recognized and proved as a professional and correct, but still there are some lacks like computer investigations and statistical backgrounds, as well digitalized results for lots of rare and not so popular diseases, regardless of the enormous database of paper records, lack of suitable software solutions and experts to work with.
Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is one of these diseases, where a person's immune system attacks and injures the body's own organs and tissues, but what causes it remains unknown. Almost every system of the body can be affected by SLE, which is deeply embarrassed by the varying patients’ status.
We have addressed these problems and developed a specialized software system for assessing both current lupus disease activity and changes in that activity since the patient was last seen.
Software solution “Imunolog” is developed after winning international project between University Hospital Alexandrovska, New Bulgarian University and Barcelona Medical University. That system also performs educational functions in New Bulgarian University – it is a model for courses in medical informatics and data bases. We use it to present to the students a structural approach in elaborating an Information system for a concrete disease.
One of the fundamental initiatives of the software is to localize the main predispositions for this disease based on the statistic data from Bulgarian patients for 40 years period, the relationship between treatment and following manifestations of the disease, sequence of results from a concrete therapy and other systems reactions and adaptation.
