As this year comes to an end we are celebrating the conclusion of the Taking SickKids Mobile project. It was an ambitious undertaking. Researchers from The Hospital for Sick Children, OCAD University, George Brown College, and Ryerson University collaborated to produce six prototypes that promise significant timesaving improvements to patient care.
Since MEIC’s founding seven years ago, it has incubated and launched companies, been a matchmaker, brought together players in a diverse and emerging mobile ecosystem, conducted outreach, and produced three major research reports.
The mobile landscape has changed greatly over the last seven years. Mobile is now widely integrated with other industries, and we are entering the age of the Internet of Things, which is why MEIC’s board of directors has decided to lay down its gauntlet so that others may pick up the challenge and opportunities that mobile provides to their own sectors.
Thank you for your support and participation in MEIC over the years. Best wishes for a successful 2015!
Kathleen Webb, Executive Director
and MEIC Board of Directors
