2013 hSITE Annual Research Review

Montreal, QC

The 4th Annual Research Review of the hSITE Network was held November 18, 2013, in Montreal. Attendees included Network researchers, students and post-doctoral fellows, and representatives from our industry, healthcare and university partners.

  This year’s event showcased some exciting results from the Network-funded research. The agenda included demo-focused presentations by five hSITE researchers, as well as hSITE-related highlights from two of our industrial partners (Chris Ault, QNX Software Systems, and Suzanne Rochford, Telus Health).

  A student poster and demo session/competition, featuring 30 posters and 12 demos, completed the day. Winners of the poster competition were:

  Stephanie Bennett (Carleton University): “Automated Assessment of Mobility in Bedridden Patients”; Hadi Bahrami (Université Laval): “Realizing Implanted Wireless UWB Transceiver for Neural Recording Applications”; Emily Porter (McGill University): “Microwave Radar for Breast Imaging”.

  The winning demo was presented by Akib Uddin (University of Toronto): “Application of Medical Body Area Networks to Reduce Blood Pressure in Ambulatory Settings”

  Network members can review all the presentations by logging into the INTRANET site above.

Welcome to the hSITE Web Site

In October 2008, a Research Network entitled “Healthcare Support through Information Technology Enhancements” (hSITE) was launched at McGill University. The Network’s five-year agenda is backed by a $4,665,400 award by the Government of Canada’s Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), as well as contributions from partnered Canadian companies.

Developed in collaboration with major Canadian communications companies and healthcare organizations, hSITE will research and develop the key components of an IT infrastructure that can support the intelligence, dependability, ease of use, and flexibility needed to meet the demanding requirements of a clinical environment.



Dr. Joseph Cafazzo recently gave a TEDx presentation, highlighting healthcare issues pertaining to hSITE-funded research:
