Kampus ITS, ITS News — Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember (ITS) continues to foster collaborations to create technological innovations in the field of healthcare. This time, ITS has partnered with the Airlangga University Hospital (RSUA) in developing the breakthrough SahabatCAPD application, an intelligent solution to facilitate doctors in monitoring chronic kidney disease patients undergoing Continuous Ambulatory Peritoneal Dialysis (CAPD) therapy.

Ketua tim peneliti, Dini Adni Navastara SKom MSc menjelaskan, inovasi ini berawal dari gagasan kreatif mahasiswa ITS yang berpartisipasi dalam Program Kreativitas Mahasiswa (PKM) tahun 2021 lalu. Sebagai dosen pembimbing dalam tim, perempuan yang kerap disapa Dini ini melihat potensi besar dalam ide tersebut untuk meningkatkan sistem pemantauan dan pengelolaan kondisi pasien gagal ginjal kronis. “Namun, anggota tim mahasiswa tersebut saat ini telah menyelesaikan studinya di ITS,” ungkapnya.

Not wanting to end the development of their innovation, the lecturer from the ITS Department of Informatics decided to continue the research in the development and refinement of the application, including incorporating deep learning technology into it. The choice of this technology is based on previous research showing the success of deep learning in diagnosing medical conditions through imaging. “Nevertheless, there hasn’t been specific deep learning-based research related to CAPD for detecting complication risks using effluent dialysate,” Dini added.

Through the application of deep learning, Dini continued, this application has the potential to recognize complex patterns and interpret waste fluid data more accurately, thereby allowing for better detection of potential complications. Additionally, the application is equipped with more comprehensive complaint features, providing additional information to doctors to facilitate a more comprehensive patient development diagnosis.

According to Dini, this further research is inseparable from RSUA’s involvement in optimizing the utilization of relevant patient data to improve the accuracy and effectiveness of the application. With this collaboration, it is hoped that the SahabatCAPD application can be tested and adjusted more precisely according to the needs of chronic kidney disease patients undergoing CAPD therapy in the hospital environment. “Furthermore, patient data collection will be conducted continuously to adjust the validation results from the hospital,” said the alumnus of Pusan National University, South Korea.

All the recording, detection, and monitoring features developed within this application and research aim to reduce cases of undetected complications in chronic kidney disease. This is because 16 percent of the risk of patient mortality in CAPD therapy is caused by complications due to negligence, technical errors, and mistakes in patient monitoring. “This research also targets the evaluation of the performance of various deep learning models that have been developed previously,” she added.

Once all stages of development and refinement are complete, the SahabatCAPD application will soon be launched for its initial use at RSUA. “This initial launch plan marks the first step in providing better services for chronic kidney disease patients undergoing CAPD therapy,” expressed the Head of Customer Relations and Business Planning at the Directorate of Technology Development and Information Systems (DPTSI) of ITS.
