Old Westbury, N.Y. (December 8, 2011) ̶ Several NYIT engineering and computer science experts presented research yesterday that could benefit the medical field, in areas ranging from electronic medical records to patient care and safety.
After the presentations, top NYIT leaders said they were excited about research opportunities that advance both disciplines and bring them closer together.
"There's a strong scientific link to what we do," said Ross-Lee, noting that a central tenet of osteopathic manipulative medicine
involves structure and function, two areas that are also central to engineering.
One presentation focused on the computing improvements necessary to ensure more accurate electronic health records. Another current research project is the development of a secure “wireless highway,”
or Wi-Hi, to monitor patients. The third presentation summarized the development of 3-D body models that are more accurate in understanding abdominal injuries.
New York Institute of Technology (NYIT) offers undergraduate, graduate, and professional degrees in more than 90 fields of study, including architecture and design; arts and sciences; education; engineering and computing sciences; health professions; management; and osteopathic medicine. A non-profit independent, private institution of higher education, NYIT has more than 14,000 students attending campuses on Long Island and Manhattan, online, and at its global campuses. NYIT sponsors 11 NCAA Division II programs and one Division I team.
Led by President Edward Guiliano
, NYIT is guided by its mission to provide career-oriented professional education, offer access to opportunity to all qualified students, and support applications-oriented research that benefits the larger world.
