KCE – Video registration Operating room

The Belgian Health Care Knowledge Centre (KCE) is a federal institution. It was founded on 24 December 2002 and has been operating since 2003. The KCE porduces studies and reports to advise policy-makers when deciding on healthcare and health insurance. It is not involved in making decisions itself and certainly not in their implementation. Its role is to point the way to the best possible solutions.

Description | business case

The KCE asked hict to examine the following:

“Is it possible to improve the quality of surgical interventions in the operating room by means of video registration of endoscopic images?"


hict developed a scientific report of five parts based on the Health Technology Assessment methodology (Executive-cost-evaluation):

  • assessment of the necessary technology; 
  • legal context of video registration; 
  • study for quality control in an operating room; 
  • literature study for common practices within the research domain; 
  • qualitative (field) research with surgeons; 
  • conclusions and recommendations. 


The results were presented in a research report based on a scientific study consisting of a literature study and interviews with surgeons.
