From brain computer interfaces to gyroscopes, the next generation of healthcare technologies have something for everyone — and they’re being developed in Northeastern labs.
Northeastern’s new doctoral program in personal health informatics — the first of its kind in the nation — will prepare students for researching and developing new technologies that can have a global impact on healthcare.
The United States spends $2 trillion in health care annually. New technologies and approaches to health care have led to a growing field in health informatics, which has a focus on both the clinical and personal aspects of the industry. We asked Timothy Bickmore, an associate professor in the College of Computer and Information Science, to discuss the impact this field can have on the health care industry as a whole, as well as Northeastern’s new PhD program in health informatics.
Northeastern assistant professor Matthew Goodwin combines both health and computer sciences to develop a better approach to diagnosing and treating Autism Spectrum Disorders.
