  • Northeastern class asks students to invent new healthcare tools

    Boston Magazine - 09/26/2014

    In a class offered at Northeastern University this fall, the required materials go far beyond textbooks: Students are tasked with using cutting-edge technologies such as Google Glass and smart watches to improve healthcare.

    The class, offered through Northeastern’s Personal Health Informatics program, is open to undergraduate, graduate, and Ph.D. students from a variety of disciplines. Students are put in teams based on their skills and backgrounds, and then are set loose to use the tools to create a prototype that could be used to solve current healthcare problems. Then, in a class offered the following semester, other students will test those prototypes to bring the ideas one step closer to market.
