  6. 6. 7/22/2010 Dr. Michael Rosengarten 6 INTEGRATION OF WEB TECHNOLOGY IN MEDICAL PRACTICE AND TEACHING Past Experience in Basic Electronic systems, Instrument Design and Computer Program Authoring. Michael Rosengarten has a broad technical background. His degree at McGill University in Electrical Engineering included training in information transmission and computer programming both of which are important in the current context of transmission of material over the Web. His summer work experience included computer maintenance in France; one year in Radar Maintenance, and one year in Telecommunications Engineering in the Canadian Air Force Officer Corps. After graduation, he worked for several years in Ottawa, dealing with the supply of sophisticated electronic nuclear and test instrumentation to the National Research Council, Atomic Energy of Canada, and the Department of Health and Welfare of Canada. While in medical school, Dr. Rosengarten applied his engineering skills to the medical field by designing and building instrumentation for experimental animal studies. He authored computer programs to interpret the data. During two research years in Paris, France, he further married engineering and medicine: he did computer-aided analysis of human heart-rate variability and authored both analytical and textual computer programs for medical use. Integration of Computer Technology in the Medical Field Dr. Rosengarten has designed, created, and currently runs medical computer networks in the division of Cardiology at McGill University. He designed and installed one of the first computer networks in this system to offer email, Internet access, network FAX, and main frame access to all members of the Division. After creating a modern working environment for the Division, he encouraged colleagues and staff to acquire computer skills . Since then, he has been the main resource person for computer planning, coordination, and maintenance in cardiology at the Montreal General Hospital. He has used his programming skills to author special medical software. For example, using a graphical software programming language, Lab View, he created a sophisticated program for the acquisition and display of electrophysiology data generated during invasive
  7. 7. 7/22/2010 Dr. Michael Rosengarten 7 electrophysiology studies. This program was a forerunner of current computer based systems. Current Database Authoring and Management Dr. Rosengarten has extensive experience with medical database management, essential for the creation of powerful and user-friendly knowledge databases. He designed and authored three relational database programs (using Acius 4D): 1) patient demographics and scheduling 2) test scheduling and 3) an advanced pacemaker follow- up database. These databases are in current use and are suited to the medical environment, as they are cross-platform, handle concurrent users, provide both excellent search tools and forms for finding data and generating reports. The pacemaker database manages all of the pacemaker implants for the McGill University Medical Center and is intranet based ( as well as Internet capable) so that it is easily used at multiple geographic sites. Dr. Rosengarten is responsible for the administration and maintainance of the server for these databases. He has also worked with access from the Internet both with customized client software and traditional Web browsers. Multimedia/Web teaching/Distance Learning The highlights of the Web content created by Dr. Rosengarten can be toured at URL: . Dr. Rosengarten is part of the Molson Medical Informatics project that provides a forum and infrastructure for McGill medical students and staff interested in teaching on the Web. He has independently developed an extensive Web-based teaching resource for patients as well as caregivers, as illustrated by the "Medical Teaching" section of the Online Journal of Cardiology. The Online Journal of Cardiology Web site created by Dr. Rosengarten was the first to develop techniques for the display of high resolution cardiac electrocardiograms on the Web (using Photoshop, Go Live, and Page Mill). The Online Journal of Cardiology has also introduced new methods of self testing to aid distance learning.( see the Super EKG and the X-ray Puzzler). The site also includes the Web conversion of a printed text on electrocardiography in French.
  8. 8. 7/22/2010 Dr. Michael Rosengarten 8 Dr. Rosengarten is currently creating medical Web teaching with the latest software tools (Realplayer, Quicktime, Final Cut Pro, Power Point, etc.) and has developed techniques for the display of high quality x-ray still and video images on the Web. He is applying the latest technology and software (digital video recording, Firewire communication, streaming Quicktime 4 and Realplayer, Final Cut Pro, Photoshop 5.5 etc) to enhance the quality of Web-based video for medical teaching.

  12. 12. 7/22/2010 Dr. Michael Rosengarten 12 PUBLICATIONS Founder, multimedia journals: 1996- Founder, Editor-in-Chief, and site manager, The Online Journal of Cardiology, an Internet journal ( The Online Journal of Cardiology presents a new approach to publishing and the teaching of cardiology. It is based on the idea that recent technology (computer software, the Web, high speed personal computers) has revolutionized the playing field for teaching and information exchange. The Journal illustrates how the integration of multi-media publication expands the range and impact of teaching; for example, in collaboration with The McGill Medical Informatics Program, the Journal allows the teacher and student to publish easily at low cost. The Journal also provides text, graphics (colour illustrations, high resolution electrocradiograms and rhythm strips, angiograms, x=rays etc), sound (voice, pacemaker transmissions ), as well as video teaching material; this includes state-of-the-art Web transmission of teaching conferences up to one hour in length. The Journal provides interaction with students, caregivers, and others through a number of forms: discussion groups, e- mail, and integrated Web forms. The Journal also publishes articles in more traditional form. Although modestly funded, and produce directly by Dr. Rosengarten, the site has been a great success. As of fall, 1999, it has attracted more than 150,000 visits to the Home Page and 60,000 to the Teaching Page. 1999- Founder, Editor-in-Chief, and site manager, The Journal of the Canadian Working Group for Cardiac Pacing ( This is the second of two Internet journals that Dr. Rosengarten has created. The Journal is designed to pull together caregivers in Canada, improve cardiac pacing practices, and provide patients with relevant information regarding their devices. The site is designed as a partnership site between the Universities and the device manufactures. The site offers low cost to the site's sponsors, in return for their contribution of material. The site incorporates e-mail, discussion groups and Web forms to facilitate the addition of information. Currently the site includes a comprehensive database on Canadian Device clinics and multilingual patient pacemaker information, and a list of preferred links to other sites.
