Ontario Tech acknowledges the lands and people of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.

We are thankful to be welcome on these lands in friendship. The lands we are situated on are covered by the Williams Treaties and are the traditional territory of the Mississaugas, a branch of the greater Anishinaabeg Nation, including Algonquin, Ojibway, Odawa and Pottawatomi. These lands remain home to many Indigenous nations and peoples.

We acknowledge this land out of respect for the Indigenous nations who have cared for Turtle Island, also called North America, from before the arrival of settler peoples until this day. Most importantly, we acknowledge that the history of these lands has been tainted by poor treatment and a lack of friendship with the First Nations who call them home.

This history is something we are all affected by because we are all treaty people in Canada. We all have a shared history to reflect on, and each of us is affected by this history in different ways. Our past defines our present, but if we move forward as friends and allies, then it does not have to define our future.

Health Informatics Laboratory

informatics labThis lab supports fundamental and applied research within the health informatics domain, with a focus on its ability to simulate current and proposed next-generation functions within intensive care units (ICUs), specifically neonatal ICUs (NICUs). No similar innovative advanced prototyping and simulation environment to support next-generation health informatics solutions exists in the world.

The lab contains three medical devices used within ICUs, as well as a range of small fanless computers, laptops, personal digital assistants (PDAs) and computer servers. The small fanless computers, laptops and PDAs simulate functions related to data-collection units, NICU control stations, specialist workstations, remote-access specialist workstations and/or the referral control centre. The environment is configured to enable the simulation of a range of scenarios incorporating ICUs, remote hospitals, and a referral control centre with specialist remote access.
