Health is generating large volumes of data that can provide invaluable insights into clinical and operational aspects of healthcare delivery. There is a general lack of specialized and integrated health data analytics platforms that offer technical methods to support the entire health data analysis pipeline -- i.e. health data selection, integration,(More)
—We present an E-Research platform for studying the impact of changes in the ecosystem on oceans and marine life. We have developed the Platform for Ocean Knowledge Management (POKM) that offers a suite of services for researchers to (a) access, share, integrate and operationalize the data, models and knowledge resources available at multiple sites; (b)(More)
Atrial Fibrillation (AF) is the most common cardiac arrhythmia. Generally, the therapeutic options for managing AF include the use of anticoagulant drugs that prevent the coagulation of blood. New Oral Anticoagulants (NOACs) are not optimally prescribed to patients, despite their efficacy. In Canada, NOAC medications are not directly available to patients(More)
Software implementations of public key cryptosystems require efficient realization of operations on large integers and elements of the Galois Field. Multiple libraries implementing such operations exist both commercially and in the public domain, in this paper, we perform comparison of eight libraries: CLN, CryptoPP, GNU MP, LiDIA, MIR-ACL, NTL, OpenSSL and(More)
Healthcare operations generates large volumes of data. Big data analytics methods are needed to derive actionable and decision-quality 'intelligence' from 'big' healthcare data in order to improve patient care. Given the technical challenges to big health data analytics, in this paper we present a specialized health analytics platform -- H-DRIVE (Health(More)
We present Platform for Ocean Knowledge Management (POKM) that offers a suite of web services to support the handling of large data sets, modeling of scientific experiments, visualization of experimental results and the formation of an online scientific community. The CANARIE high bandwidth network enables the transfer of large volumes of data from multiple(More)
