Putting Healthcare on the Map

Speaking of innovation, Infonaut, a company with which the GBC Research Labs has been collaborating, was featured in a story in the Report on Business this week. The Real-Time Locating System for Improved Infection Control project is testing Infonaut's Intelligent Platform technology to track all assets in a healthcare institution. In the event of any outbreak, this practice would allow hospitals to identify, locate and isolate any equipment that has come into contact with infected patients in recent use. The Infonaut project is part of our NSERC CCIP research program.

This is the kind of applied research the country needs - innovation meeting real needs.
