McMaster-led research receives $12.3 M for wireless patient monitoring

March 4, 2016

A team of researchers led by McMaster University will receive a total of $12.3 M to enhance a remote monitoring and care system, called SMArTVIEW, for post-operative patients. The Canadian Institutes for Health Research announced yesterday that it will contribute $750 K to the project, while an additional $11.6 M will come from industry partners and other parties to develop and test the SMArTVIEW technology. McMaster reports that this technology could save many patients from life-threatening complications after surgery. McMaster
