Recently, the Ottawa-area Metroland Press published an article about our partnership with Algonquin College to establish a Health and Wellness Research Centre at the college’s Ottawa campus.
The centre is sponsored by several industry partners, and receives funding from NSERC’s College and Community Innovation Program. With the college receiving the highest possible amount under NSERC’s program, the proposal was met with highest enthusiasm.
We are very happy to be partnering with Algonquin on this venture. Having recently completed an eHealth simulation project with the school’s Nursing Program, we were able to conduct end-user studies not otherwise possible for a company our size.
Students at Algonquin College participated in our project with great enthusiasm and not only gained exposure to mobile EMR technology but also gave us very candid and valuable feedback on our system, helping us tweak it for our next real-world deployment.
With the new Centre under way and accepting project proposals, we are planning to conduct further usability studies of our cloud software solutions this coming fall. To learn more about our collaboration with Algonquin College and other institutions in Canada, contact Markus at 416-964-7333.
