The HIT Lab conducts a wide array of research projects that investigate the innovative use and clinical effectiveness of ICT. From conducting usability assessments of electronic health records to completing actigraphy studies in elderly populations, our track record encompasses research initiatives spanning diverse technologies, conditions, settings and methods. For select research programs, we organize cross-disciplinary consortia , bringing together leaders from across the healthcare landscape to develop innovative ideas, share practical knowledge and guide our study of some of the industry’s most pressing challenges.
In order to approach a wide breadth of initiatives, we draw on an expert team of faculty, staff, students and alumni from major universities around the world. For each project, we assemble a group of full-time staff members as well as distinguished members and research partners with experience in relevant fields.
One of the hallmarks of the Lab’s research programs is our high level of credibility. The Lab’s conclusions are based solely on the evidence of our research, and adherence to scientific methods and independence is critical to our objectivity and our ethics.
