Telemedicine research

USA - A team of researchers at the Rochester Institute of Technology, is working to advance the integration of radio frequency identification technology (RFID) into existing cardiac sensor networks, a new wireless technology for telemedicine delivery, and will also work to enhance the security of the systems used.

 The research is supported by a $400,000 grant from the National Science Foundation’s Cyber Trust Programme.
Fei Hu, assistant professor of computer engineering, the principal investigator, will collaborate with Yang Xiao, professor of computer science at the University of Alabama. On the security issue, they will research the use of anti-interference technology to reduce radio distortion of these networks and design and test new RFID security schemes that will decrease the chance of information being stolen.
