The Canadian Foundation for Innovation (CFI) has posted a profile of the Artemis research project on its Innovation.ca website. Vital signs: Making sense of life-saving data for premature babies tells the story of the remarkable research being led by UOIT’s Dr. Carolyn McGregor, associate dean, Research, Faculty of Business and Information Technology, and Canada Research Chair in Health Informatics, Dr. McGregor is also cross-appointed to UOIT’s Faculty of Health Sciences.

International interest and attention continues to grow in Artemis, a first-of-its-kind neonatal health informatics research project that Dr. McGregor is leading at UOIT with IBMThe Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, Ontario and other partners around the globe. The research is helping make sense of the constant stream of data collected from critically ill premature babies so that doctors in the future will be able to better recognize subtle changes in a patient's condition. With physicians having the information they need to intervene more quickly, there is great hope for reducing mortality rates in premature babies here in Canada and around the world.
