In addition to treating children, we also are dedicated to researching better ways to diagnose, treat and prevent infectious diseases. Researchers at Children’s:
The Children's Hospital Informatics Program created HealthMap, an online resource and smart phone app that helps track the spread of contagious diseases in real time, including chickenpox.
It's a disease-mining system that uses the Internet to look for outbreaks going on around the world, bringing all this information together in one view," explains John Brownstein, PhD, co-founder of HealthMap and an assistant professor at the Informatics Program (CHIP) at Boston Children's Hospital. "We hope individuals will find the new app to be a useful source of outbreak information - locally, nationally, and globally.
Researchers have come up with a first line of defense against sepsis—using magnetism to quickly pull infected agents out of the blood.
