PART TIME POSITIONS

Machine Learning Data Analyst; Computer Vision CLOSED
Industry partner: ResTech Global
Project Summary:
 
In this research project “Tracking and organizing medication information using machine learning”, we will build a virtual assistant as a mobile application, called Therapy Tracker, which will allow smartphone users to detect prescription information on medicine bottles or other containers as well as schedule and track prescriptions to improve the quality of independent living.

The proposed application offers a solution to build such a system that can track and alert users especially elderly about their medications by simply scanning their medication prescription using the smartphone’s camera. The application will detect and capture prescription information and provide automated assistance in scheduling, reminders and tracking medications by keeping a list of medications, dosages, refill information, and prescribing documents. Augmented Reality (AR) technologies will be used to provide virtual information that combines real world situations, with virtual information, such as detecting and highlighting the correct medication from a group of them. The virtual assistant will also guide the user through both visual and auditory alerts. The proposed research will be conducted in collaboration with ResTech Global, a company focused on building cutting edge healthcare solutions.

Mobile Application Developer CLOSED
Industry partner: Closing the Gap
Project Summary: 
The scope of this project is to build a web interface for a client portal to allow CTG’s clients (actual patients receiving treatment) access to specific relevant information. This portal would be integrated in real-time with the MS Dynamics CRM platform.  This project started in Sept 2018 and we currently have an early stage prototype.  In the upcoming semester, we are planning to continue and refine the development of the system.

The following is a list of features in the portal:

  • Schedule – Shows who is coming into the home and for what service on a calendar. This is accomplished by a web-based view of a calendar system (e.g., the client can see the month of August with various appointments.) Links are provided so that the client can drill down and see relevant information for that appointment (e.g., time and length of the appointment, healthcare provider, the treatment to be performed, a brief biography and picture of the provider).
  • Provider Information – The web-based view enables the client to see a brief biography of the provider for specific appointments along with a picture and any other relevant information.  This information is retrieved from the CRM.
  • Medical Notes – The web-based view provides access to documentation related to the care the client is receiving, such as medical notes, CTG notes, etc.  This is achieved by retrieving all relevant documentations available via the CRM and/or SharePoint as appropriate. 
  • Management View – The web-based view enables the client to view admission information, care plan, and their own profile.
  • Efficient rescheduling of appointments (considers driving time, care provider’s schedules and locations, etc.)

 The web-based client portal uses a virtual machine on-premise at CTG with integration CTG’s MS Dynamics CRM using web services. Authentication is using using Active Directory and the site would use SSL

 

Mobile Application Developer CLOSED
Industry partner:PointClickCare
Project Summary: 
Develop creative solutions using mobile and/or IoT technologies for senior living environments;behavioural human factor modelling and assessment; and predictive analysis using machine learning.  

Motivation:  

  • aging demographics is a world-wide phenomenon;
  • Elderly want to stay in their own homes;
  • increasing pressure on healthcare system for people to ‘age in place’ (Hospitals, LHIN, etc.)

 

This project focuses on:  

  • Creating a caregiver app and a senior app to model, assess and alert the caregiver if intervention is required.
  • Behavioural modelling using: 1) activitdata (e.g., walking, running, sleeping, etc.); 2) biometric data (heart pulse rate, SPO2, BP, step count, etc.); 3) geofencing data (did the senior leave his/her home?)
  • Conducting a series of scenario-based experiments; for example:
  • What is ‘normal’ behaviour?  What is ‘abnormal’?
  • When should intervention be triggered?
  • How much detailed information should be presented to the care giver app (e.g., son/daughter)?
  • How much data can be mined, analysed by machine learning or other techniques to provide informative reports and aid in prediction?
  • Apply Machine Learning for analysis and predictive insights. Abnormal behaviours will be identified (e.g., person wakes up several times in the night to check that the garage door is closed; or there has been no activity in the kitchen during breakfast time when there typically is a lot of activity).
  • Create a process to notify circle-of-care stakeholders of the identified abnormal behaviour (e.g., notify children, caregivers, physicians with appropriate message and information).
