As part of the project, a data collection and analysis system will be developed to support the evaluation of the effectiveness of medical cosmetic treatments in spa therapy. Many official Polish reports indicate the insufficient use of the health resorts and the situations of mutual blocking by patients from using a wide range of available spa services. This leads to a decrease in the financial efficiency of the spa treatment system. In order to be able to do any actions changing this state, first of all, it is necessary to build IT systems for collecting data that concern patients using spas, the scope of treatments, and solutions offered by spas that affect therapies and cures. This applies both to the stationary spa treatments and additionally through the use of spa medical cosmetics. Many years of practice in the operation of various spas, supported by their statistics, surveys, opinions of patients, and good practices, indicate that medicinal cosmetics can extend the period after which further stationary treatments are needed. The IT system proposed in the project will consist of a computer application, a server for data collection and a database to which, on the basis of a specialized survey prepared by medical doctors and physiotherapists, it will be possible to successively enter data by patients and doctors. The system will perform preliminary statistical analyzes and will present and prepare the data so that they can be further analyzed in order to obtain hidden rules and potential recommendations.
This type of comprehensive IT solution may contribute to: a significant improvement in the efficiency of the health resort's operation, obtaining numerical data confirming the effectiveness of additional treatments based on cosmetics, advertising services and acquiring regular customers, advertising the cosmetics offered as effectively supporting on-site treatments. On the basis of this system, it will also be possible to apply similar solutions, e.g. in private spas that can offer their clients various types of stationary therapies along with similar complementary treatments based on various therapeutic cosmetics.
