Hospital Marqués de Valdecilla: Medical platform to collaborate remotely with MR and VR

“LINA is a platform that gives a new dimension to practitioners when planning interventions before the day of surgery and as a support resource during the course of surgery” – Ignacio del Moral, Director of Hospital Virtual Valdecilla

The Marqués de Valdecilla University Hospital is a third-level centre and a benchmark in Spanish healthcare for highly complex pathologies and procedures. It has 8 CSUR and has been recognized with the two-star QH seal for its quality and IHHI certification.

It has its own innovation unit, the Valdecilla Virtual Hospital. Since it was set up in 2010, it has been committed to clinical simulation to train medical professionals in all types of specialties, becoming a national and European benchmark.

In their commitment to using innovative technologies to support clinical decision-making by healthcare professionals and improve patient safety, they wanted to go a step further in researching new techniques. That is why it has entrusted Plain Concepts with creating LINA, a virtual and mixed reality-based tool that aims to support surgical planning and connect doctors worldwide.


The first challenge we faced was that Hospital de Valdecilla lacked a cloud infrastructure that could respond to the demands required by the platform.

On the other hand, a connection had to be made between the web and the mixed reality glasses, which had to be user-friendly. In addition, security had to be guaranteed for sensitive data such as medical information.



Given the need to create a scalable tool with a global reach, we chose to rely on .NET technology and Azure as cloud infrastructure. This has allowed us to connect the web and the HoloLens 2 or Meta Quest glasses in a user-friendly way and with the necessary guarantees, in terms of regulations and security, for processing such sensitive medical data.

Doctors can communicate with their counterparts via the web portal or send information directly to the glasses, facilitating the preparation of any surgical intervention collaboratively and with greater precision. In addition, all data can be accessed from the operating theatre so that the practitioner can naturally access information and images and interact with the holograms through gestures without losing sight of the real environment.



LINA opens a new paradigm in the sector. Healthcare professionals already use this technology to plan their surgical interventions, including complex interventional techniques through mixed reality. This gives them an added tool when making clinical decisions, reducing uncertainty and ensuring patient safety.

In addition, the application is expanding as new features and functionalities are being developed to provide healthcare professionals with more patient data so that they can make increasingly personalized decisions tailored to each case.

On the other hand, they also want to scale LINA to new specialties and spread it to other hospitals nationally and internationally. Therefore, the journey has only just begun.
