What is Athena?
Athena extends Artemis to take not just physiological data but also data from a first person shooter serious game, ArmA3, as well as a new haptic garment called ARAIG, by a tech startup company called IFTech Inventing Future Technology Inc.

Congratulations Ines Jowitt on the successful completion of your Masters research

Congratulations Ines Jowitt on the successful completion of your Masters research. Details of their research are as follows:

Thesis title: HITEQI - A Framework to Implement Health Information Technology- Enabled Quality Improvement

This thesis proposes a framework known as the Health Information Technology-Enabled Quality Improvement (HITEQI) to provide a structured approach to quality improvement in healthcare where the intervention is through the use of information technology. HITEQI combines the core elements of Canada Health Infoway’s Change Management Framework (CMF) with the formal process structure of the National Health Services’ Clinician Deployment Guide, and addresses gaps noted by the researcher in the CMF. Specifically, these gaps are the lack of; patient-centred focus, intra/inter-organizational considerations, and data and information flows. The proposed HITEQI Framework provides a structured approach for implementing health information technology (HIT). The framework is demonstrated through a case study of a proposed remote Intensivist consultation service to provide critical care to patients at a rural hospital. The service requires the implementation of an advanced telemedicine technology. Careful consideration of change management (CM) can help mitigate the high failure rate associated with IT implementation and adoption. The HITEQI framework provides a structured CM approach while utilizing PaJMa to provide a patient centred approach that supports clinician information needs and workflows across intra/inter-organizational boundaries.

Seasons Greetings from the UOIT Health Informatics Research team

We would like to take this opportunity to say Seasons Greetings to all at this time of year. We took a moment out to celebrate all the successes from another great year of the UOIT HIR Team.

CBC Radio One Spark program on Big Data features Dr McGregor and the Artemis Project

Dr. McGregor’s research at UOIT is a focal point in the May 26, 2013 episode of Spark, CBC Radio One’s weekly technology and culture program. Spark explores the current trends of collecting, storing and processing massive amounts of data, and why society should care as more and more aspects of the real world are becoming datified.
